to THANK the Nokie Fan Family that Posted Their Pledges for a Special
Project: Nokie's 80th Birthday CD / Live DVD with
We just did a posting this last month to help promote a new 80th
Celebration CD/Live DVD. We did this through Kickstarter for the fans
with lots of opportunities to be a huge part of this by ordering their
CD early. Also there were many more gifts for posting a larger pledge
on-line. No one who pledged was charged until the cost of making the
special project was met. Unfortunately we did not reach our quota, so
the project was taken down. Please watch your email and Nokie's web
site for another idea on making Nokie's 80th Celebration CD project a
reality for the fans. We will send an email soon.
Thank you for
being a true music lover of Nokie & The Ventures music. Rock,
Country, Blues, Gospel, Classical... Nokie plays it all. Nokie will
continue to bring it all to his fan family that continues to listen.
It's part of his heart and soul... His life line and mine too.
best goes out to you and your family from Nokie & Judy for this
Easter. "Take time this weekend to pray for world Peace"
