That's right, at 9:00 PM on December 10, 2012, Gordon Roque will be performing at Eddie's Attic in Atlanta, GA. Located in the town of Decatur within the Atlanta metro area, Eddie's Attic is a “listening room” with a superior sound system/acoustics, where customers are asked to silence cell phones and actually listen to the songs. Eddie’s Attic draws both fans and artists from all over the world, and continues to be one of the premier music venues in the South. On any given night, music lovers can hear talented performing songwriters and bands playing original music in an intimate setting.
Eddie's Attic is located at 515-B North McDonough St. (Upstairs). More details about this special performance coming soon.
On August 1, 2012, Gordon Roque launched an online fundraising campaign with a goal of raising $3,500 to record the collection of songs for his new album. This was a 45 day campaign that also included a birthday fundraising show at Cafe Coco on August 25.
On Saturday, September 15, the campaign ended with a grand total of $2,224 raised due to the generous donations from people all over the country. This final tally includes funds generated through the online indiegogo site, the birthday fundraiser, and donations mailed directly to Gordon Roqué.
Even though the funding goal was not reached, there is enough money to proceed with the album and to begin the recording process.
In October, Gordon Roqué will launch an art sale and auction to raise the remainder of the funds needed to complete this project.
Plans are now being made to record the new album in November and December later this year. There is lots of hard work ahead.
Special thanks to everyone who donated funds and who helped spread the word. This new album has been over three years in the making, and it will be Gordon's most ambitious work to date.
Celebrate Gordon Roque's Birthday and Support the Creation of "The Gardener"
Come one! Come all!!! Everyone's invited!!!!
After a year away from the limelight, Gordon Roque returns to the stage on August 25 for a special birthday celebration and performance in Nashville at Cafe Coco! He will be playing a lively mix of old and new songs in the first of several performances being planned over the next year.
This show is a Gordon's birthday celebration in which Gordon will be joined by several of his favorite performers from the local music scene. Tony Youngblood will be doing a set, and Nashville's Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will be making a presentation.
The evening will also be hosted by the fabulous Veronica Electronica to add comic relief and drag queen fun to the night's festivities!!!
The show starts at 8:00 PM. Free Admission. Donations Accepted.
All proceeds for the evening will go towards the production costs for Gordon's new album "The Gardener".
There are numerous donation levels built into this campaign, and each level offers worthwhile gifts for your generosity.
From the seedling level to the rain forest, various packages include advance copies of the new album, physical copies of my first album "Seahorses", signed original artwork, a cd copy of b-sides from the recording sessions, original songs written from your ideas, hand-knitted scarves made by me, youtube interpretive or booty-poppin' dancing by yours truly, and house concerts.
August is Gordon's birthday month, and this is a part of a series of efforts to get this album off the ground!!
