The Frog Pond Best of the Season CD
$6,345 of $7,000 goal
We are working towards putting a
system in place to capture the live
audio of the music performed at
the Frog Pond Sunday Socials during the months of September through April comprising the Fall/Winter and Winter/Spring seasons. The shows would be assessed and the most inspired and highest quality performances would be compiled, mixed, mastered and released bi-seasonally on CD and permanent digital download. Each release would consist of 12-20 songs. The CD’s would be for sale as physical product and available for download through a newly created website and online storefront.
The Frog Pond would also make the recording equipment available for use at The Frog Pond to our music community of artists and songwriters for the promotion of their origianl music and events.
THIS IS WHAT WE NEED

Live, multi-channel audio acquisition for broadcast, location, film and TV sound. 24 channels. 24 integrated microphone preamps. 24bit/96kHz audio quality. Also the 75 foot splitter snake to the mixing board.

We all came together for a common goal to make this happen and we’ve reached that goal. Y’all are simply amazing, and we so appreciate your love and support here at The Frog Pond Sunday Social. I can’t wait to hear the CD in the Fall!!
Thank you all soooooo much!!
A since of home and welcome has been one of our goals from the beginning. To give folks somewhere to sit and listen, somewhere to take a long deep breath and hug a friend and share a meal..somewhere for songwriters and musicians to woodshed new music, not only with listeners, but with each other.
Our thoughts were to have the music grow in a positive way while bringing people together here on Sundays to share a common good. We've almost reached our goal of making the music available to take home with you. We've purchased most of the equipment to set up the mixing studio behind the stage for Trina Shoemaker to work her magic. On a wing and a prayer we started this fundraiser, your donations are making this happen and we'll be ready to record the first season opener. :) Woo hoooo!
I want to thank all of you so very much for your support of The Frog Pond Sunday Social over the years. We could not have done this without each and every one of you. The music and songwriter rounds out here on the farm have become legendary, and now we'll be able to share those once in a lifetime memories and moments with all of you. You'll soon be able to take home a double CD of the best of The Frog Pond season.! What an amazing community we have! All for the love of music..:)
Thanks so much to everyone who has donated and supported us in making our goal of purchasing the mixer for recording the performances for CD's and sharing the music here at The Frog Pond Sunday Socials. We're reaching our goal and so hope to have it all up and recording by our first show of the season on Sept. 27th. Y'all are the bomb!! Thank you again and again!!
