This is easier: 


I'm a backer of the $60.00 package, which isn't a bad deal.  This is a very unique way to generate buzz, I'm sure the project is a "go" already.  

Not sure about the backing musicians, I wish Daryl Stuermer was the guitarist!  He's played with Ponty and was amazing with Genesis, live.  

The Anderson Ponty Band also includes

Jamie Dunlap on guitars - well known as a film and television composer, most notably South Park.

Wally Minko on keyboards - virtuoso player and composer who has performed and recorded with many worldwide stars including Pink, Toni Braxton, Jean-Luc Ponty, Tom Jones and Barry Manilow.

Baron Browne on bass who has played with Steve Smith, Billy Cobham and Jean-Luc Ponty.

Rayford Griffin on drums and percussion, who has played with Stanley Clarke Band, George Duke, Jean-Luc Ponty and Michael Jackson.

Very interesting. I love them both, but they sure come from very different musical worlds. Let's hope for a successful merger like Plant/Krauss, and not a stinker like Metallica/Lou Reed.

I can't swing this right now. Does anyone know if the CD/DVD will be released through the regular shops?
(I imagine it will?)

I don't mind backing smaller artists who are struggling but not those who had the money and wasted it.

The song samples posted for Kickstarter contributors sound fantastic!!  I'm pumped, this will be one hell of a super-group!!  

As soon as something becomes available, I'll post it for PA.  This is a notable lineup, the guitarist is hot! 

The Anderson Ponty Band also includes

Jamie Dunlap on guitars - well known as a film and television composer, most notably South Park.

Wally Minko on keyboards - virtuoso player and composer who has performed and recorded with many worldwide stars including Pink, Toni Braxton, Jean-Luc Ponty, Tom Jones and Barry Manilow.

Hi all, We're called Reload, a prog rock band. Just thought you might be interested in supporting our Kickstarter EP project. (launched 21st August 2014 ! )  We may not be Jon Anderson or Genesis but would certainly "appreciate" any support to get our project off the ground :)  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/reload/dark-matter-progressive-rock-debut-ep



I really hope we can generate support for our project !

Thanks 

Paul
