In August 2012, I was approached regarding an upcoming concert that would be held in Grants Pass, OR for the benefit of a young community leader and activist that was injured while participating in a philanthropic event the previous winter. I was inspired by the energy of the diverse volunteer organizers who had rallied together for this cause, and I too found the cause well worth donating my time and energy into.

CJ Severson is a teenager from Grants Pass, OR, who dedicated many hundreds of hours of service to his community before suffering a spinal injury while participating in a philanthropic event in December, 2011. Even as he slowly recovers from his injury, CJ continues to be an inspiration to many through his ongoing volunteer work and speaking engagements.

I am thrilled to announce today that after a painstaking 5 month long post-production process, we are finally ready to release the DVD, featuring some of the greatest musicians in Southern Oregon. By buying this 2 DVD boxset, you are continuing the effort to help mitigate CJ’s ongoing medical and rehabilitation expenses. Thank you. For every $20 boxset sale, $12 will go to CJ. The rest will go toward recovering DVD replication and packaging costs ($5), PayPal fees ($1), and my own expenses in producing these DVDs from start to finish ($2).

We’re already accepting pre-orders here. Please note that you can save shipping costs by electing to pick up your copy in person at a local location. Currently, we plan to carry these DVDs at Rogue Roasters Coffee and Matt Hill Dentistry in Grants Pass, OR. I will also deliver these in person to residents of Ashland, OR.

Pre-orders will be fulfilled as soon as the DVDs are replicated and boxed.

Until then, please enjoy these promotional videos, featuring outstanding music by the highly talented Matt Hill and band, and Antonio Melendez and family.
