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.

We have a full page in MOJO 60's Magazine on Page 10. This week we RAISED £2,900

Go to any newsagent and buy MOJO magazine. We have a full page in MOJO 60's Magazine on Page 10 . We are also featured  in many specialist Hi Fi Magazines too.  We are in print as far afield as as The Sydney Morning Herald and all Australian 'In Flight Magazines'. Meanwhile, we had a record week in raising £2,700 with 403 pledges as donations so we are now at 73% of our target with just 18 days to go.  Spread the work folks as you all helped us achieve  this. But we still need further donations. 120 £50 quid donations would see us reach target by that date.  Or 240 £25 donations would work too. Thanks!

Earlier 'Talk RADIO' appearance tonight Sunday 30th at 8pm on Tragedy Plus Time with Bob Mills

A pure pleasure to be LIVE on Talk Radio tonight after 8 with Bob Mills on his great show Tragedy Plus Time with Bob Mills (it just seemed the right title) Talking about? Guess what? Denmark St and the Tin Pan Alley Tales Film. Bob was in my Procol Harum doc 11 years ago. So A couple of Music Tales and one from Glen Matlock made 'em all laugh out loud - cracker of a tale that Glen tells in Tin Pan Alley Tales. And Bob remembered me! 

A thoroughly top fella.

THE Save Denmark Street campaign staged a pop-up concert at the Phoenix Artist Club on Wednesday.

The event featured singer-songwriter Jessie Jetski and comedian Ronnie Golden, and was the first of a series of performances at the venue in Phoenix Street in support of a new documentary.

The organisers are hoping to preserve the musical heritage of Denmark Street, also known as Tin Pan Alley, which in its heyday was home to NME? and the legendary Regent Sound Studio.

Concerts are being held to raise funds for Tin Pan Alley Tales, a documentary featuring the stories of people who have lived and worked in the area. 

Save Denmark Street’s chairman Henry Scott-Irvine said: “All our efforts are now focused on funding our film.” 

A “crowdfunding” page has been launched atwww.phundee.com/reward/campaign/tin-pan-alley-tales-the-film

Tin Pan Alley Concerts this week + TPA Tales The Film needs your donations - if you have not yet pledged




Updates at October 1st from 'Save Denmark Street’s' campaign re 'Tin Pan Alley Tales The Film'

Thank you kindly to those who have pledged a donation to the cause. Almost 200 pledges, which means we’ve reached 21% of our target. If you have not pledged a donation - every pledge counts towards our making a film that nobody else would let us make  - then please do so now as we need to gain momentum to bait the bigger backers.

We’ve not been idle
Last week saw two radio spots: one on Trash Can Radio with Mike Spencer of The Cannibals fame and another on Soho Radio on Chris Sullivan’s show (drag the timeline to 40 minutes) with special guest Andy Mackay of Roxy Music and Clive Langer who is Madness’s longstanding producer. 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 Professional and Music Merchandise Review. Next week will see a huge feature in the Westminster & 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. In the light of this it would be nice to see some major UK guitar manufacturers and major British rock stars show similar faith. Why not email anyone whom you might know in the this capacity?

Stop Press
Come to our Pop Up Concert this Wednesday the 5th at 8pm till 11pm at The Phoenix Theatre Arts bar in Charing Cross road featuring some very special guests. Tickets are available here in advance as a limited number with a few more on the door on the night. So buy here now before this sells out. 
NB: Phundee pledges only kick-in for ‘the free gigs’ after we reach our target.
