TIN PAN ALLEY TALES goes into production after this successful crowdfunder
Thank you one and all for your pledges and tremendous support. We are Phundee's most successful campaign to date. Reaching almost £24,000 and a very pleasing 110% of our target.
We reached conclusion on Xmas day. We now have enough in the pot to shoot the film and hopefully have something ready for the late Spring of 2017. We will keep all donators advised. Watch this space and see our upcoming emails to all pledgers.

Both are pledging rare acetates for us to auction. You too could donate something for us to auction also.
Meanwhile, we are in the music trade magazines Music Instrument Professionaland Music Merchandise Review. Next week will see a huge feature in theWestminster & City Newspaper which is free in all major supermarkets in the borough. We are also in this month’s UK Live Magazine in all classy stationers. Furthermore a Times feature has been promised too.Keep an eye out for that. And finally, we have been offered 20% of all sales from Awesome Guitars sold this month.
