Words from Mr. Manager
On behalf of Progress Report, I want to thank all of our supporters. It does not matter whether you donated to the Kickstarter campaign, bought a ticket to the show or purchased the album. Honestly, if you wished us well in any way, THANK YOU.
It has been a most spectacular experience thus far. Of course, we have had our ups-and-downs, but we know this is all a part of the process. The success of the March 25th party was the proof in the pudding.
Pointed thanks to Mayaeni and Lord Scrummage for owning the opening slots. I was delighted to have you all a part of the show. It would be a disservice not mention that the Scrummage camp sold 30 pre-sale tickets in the two hours right before the show (Neo WHOA). We are still breaking down the win, but you two will be a big part of the overall story when we finally get it all organized. Again, thank you.
Shout out to Tom Shea, who created the trailer above this text. It is great when old friends come through to make an experience richer.
I could go on and on and on with the thanks. If you think you deserve a special shout, feel free to let us know in the comments. We appreciate you all.
