Concert at the Planetarium 8/3/12

Hello Lovely Listeners,
Little known fact about me; when I was a kid, my two career choices were Musician or Astronaut! Well, I'm not going to space...yet, but I am SO excited to be singing under the stars this Friday night at the Custer Observatory in beautiful Southold.

I'll be joined by my talented buddy David Warner Cook on guitar AND, we've confirmed that weather permitting, there will be a private audience scope viewing! I may be more excited about that, but only a little.

Custer Observatory
Friday, August 3, 2012 8pm
1115 Main Bayview Road, Southold, NY 11971
631-765-2626
Suggested Donation: $15 Non-Members, $12 Members, $10 Students

On the Sunday, August 12th, I'm so pleased to be performing at:
The Folk-Groovin' Café's Summer Fest II @ Shady Grove
5 Stratford Avenue, Greenlawn, NY 11740
Doors open at 3pm, performances until 8pm
631-368-1920

I'll be joined by Marshal Rosenberg on percussion and there's a host of other artists performing including Walter Sargent, Glenn Petitt and more! This sounds like a party for all.

The following weekend, I'll be heading to the Philadelphia Folk Festival for the very first time where I will be connecting with friends, listening to great music and hopefully singing at an open mic or two.  I had such a grand time at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival this year, I couldn't resist!


FALL PROMO TOUR
So I'm in the midst of booking the Fall promotional tour for the new CD Open Book and would welcome your help/ideas in filling in some dates.

Specifically I'm looking for anyone willing to host a house concert, venues you think would work for my style of music, and general words of encouragement.  If you are willing and able to do any of the above, please send me an email and we'll make it work!

UPDATE:
The CD is at the pressing plant as we speak with final approvals given on the artwork, so I'm expecting delivery on the 13th. I'll ask for a wee bit more patience as I organize all the different exclusives and get them out to those who ordered.

A reminder-EVERYONE who pledged on the campaign is entitled to a FREE download of the CD which is up now. I heard from a bunch of you expressing confusion about the link that PledgeMusic.com sent out. If you still haven't been able to download, shoot me an email and I'll hook you up with a link on my website that seems to be easier to use.

That's all for now my friends. As always, your love and support is very felt and much appreciated.

Wishing you all deep, relaxing, breaths of summer air,
Marci

Important Marci Geller Update: Only 5 days left and special shows coming up this week!



                                       
Hello Lovely Listeners,
What an amazing journey. The Pledgemusic.com Campaign is still chugging along and I'm so grateful to all the pledgers. I literally have a few days left until the deadline to completely the campaign. If I don't fund to 100%, I lose all the funding to release this CD, which would be really sad after all of this hard work.

I know everyone is super busy, but if you could take five minutes to pre-order the CD, digital download, or one of the other fun exclusives, it would be so very appreciated.
As an independent artist, this is literally the only way to put this new CD out. I believe in you all the way you believe in me, so let's make it happen!
Badge
Pledges start as little as $10 for the digital download and would help so much!
Please click the pledgemusic.com widget above,
choose your exclusive from the BLUE right hand column and make a pledge.
The generosity and sweet messages of encouragement from all of you pledgers have been quite humbling and very inspiring! Please spread the word.  If even a fraction of you got one friend to pre-order this labor of love, we'd be there!

THIS WEEKS SHOWS:
Friends, this show is going to be AMAZING!!!!  There is a killer house band and some of your favorite area musicans performing some of your favorite songs. I'm not going to give away my song, but you will regret it if you don't see my interpretation of this classic grunge song that changed the music scene
This Wednesday June 27th @ 8:00pm

June Newsletter






         
                             
Hello Lovely Listeners,
I did it...I entered a contest - something I almost NEVER do. I found out that Southwest was having a songwriting contest for musicians asking them to write a song to help celebrate their 41st anniversary. There were hundreds and hundreds of entrants..and I just found out I'm one of FIVE FINALISTS!!!!!

They are deciding the winner by how many views, likes and comments their video gets. If you could take 2 minutes and 4 seconds of your time to watch my video and do all of the above and then SHARE, you could help me win. The prize is getting to fly on one of their planes on June 18th and perform a surprise concert for the passengers! The cool part is, they may include the performance in an episode of their new TV series "On the Fly" on TLC! So please, comment nicely and let friends know.

April Newsletter



Hello Most Lovely Listeners,
For those of you who know me well, you know that I'm fairly phobic about my birthday which is coming up on April 11th. In an effort to continue my "growth" process, I have decided to embrace the inevitable and invite you all to help me celebrate by making my birthday wish come true. I have decided to partner with the amazing people at Pledge Music and launch the campaign to fund my new CD!

Click the widget below and away we go:
Badge
In order to make this successful, I need more than your pledge. I need you to please share this with as many friends & family members as you can. Together we can make this the best birthday ever and maybe, just maybe I'll get over my phobia and embrace the concept of another trip around the sun.

PLEASE NOTE: If I don't fully fund, I receive nothing. If I do fully fund, boy are we going to celebrate!

A full newsletter with April dates is forthcoming.

Thank you from the bottom, middle and top of my heart!
XO,
Marci

Marci Geller shows in March starting this weekend!




Hello Lovely Listeners,
There are hints of Spring...and yes, that makes me happy!!! There is SO much going on, so I'm going to get right to it.

THIS weekend, March 10th & 11th I have two really amazing and interesting performances. The first one is Saturday night up in Saugerties, NY at the famous John Street Jam. My friends, this was booked almost 2 years ago and I'm very excited about it. Basically, there are two song circles with four artists in each round. We swap songs for an hour, take an intermission and then the next round starts. It's a really cool way to really hear the "song" in it's purest form.

Sunday, March 11th I am participating in a very unusual show called Artspace the Musical. This was the brainchild of the amazingly talented and creative folks at Heartworks International. The premise of the show is a group of musicians (myself included) were given a choice of artworks that were submitted by local artists. We were then posed with the challenge of writing a song inspired by the piece of art we chose, so I will debuting my song "High On That Hill" inspired by piece #18 around 3:45pm.

A VERY FRENCH CONNECTION
MY FIRST NYC SHOW IN OVER A YEAR!!!

Ok, my tri-state friends asked for an NYC show, and now you'll receive! On Sunday, March 18th, 2012 at 3pm I have the extreme honor and pleasure of performing with world renowned French cellist, Jean-Philippe Martignoni at the famed Metropolitan Room!!!!

JP and I met in Switzerland last summer and we had an instant musical connection. He will be performing at Lincoln Center that morning and then coming downtown to perform with me. Joining us will be the wonderful Marshal Rosenberg on percussion and rumor has it there may be another special guest....I'll let you know as we get closer. I'm so excited about this show, I'm busting! (If any of you are coming as a group, they have a VIP ticket that includes a private table, open bar, appetizer & gratuity!)

At the end of the month, I'm heading south to perform at the Singer Songwriter Cape May festival on Friday, March 30th at 10:15pm. This is my first official showcase since going solo again, so I'm pretty excited about this too!

Thank you....to all of you who came to all the wonderful shows in February. I'm feeling the love my friends and I send it all right back to you! Here's some stuff from February for you to take a gander at:

JAMES MADDOCK IN THE HOUSE!!
If you missed the webcast of him in the studio singing on songs for my CD, you can still watch

How lucky am I to also have

Celebrating Love & Groundhog Day With Marci....




Hello Lovely Listeners,
I have to say, winter has been very, very kind for the most part. I still admit to getting the occasional seasonal blues, but music is keeping me happy and productive. There are lots of shows and news to share with you, so I'll cut right to the chase...

COMING UP:
THIS Thursday, February 2, 2012 at 7:30pm, I am spending the evening at Watercolor Cafe hoping beyond all hope that the Groundhog didn't see his shadow that morning...oh, and making sweet music with percussionist Marshal Rosenberg. Joining us that evening will be the magical Nenad Bach Band-a show not to be missed!

For all my eastern LI friends, Sunday, February 12 I couldn't be more tickled than to be
once again opening for the remarkable Vance Gilbert at University Cafe, right in my hometown of Stony Brook, NY.

The following evening, Monday, February 13th I'm driving up to Peekskill, NY to be the featured act at the Beanrunner Cafe as a special guest of my beautifully talented and clever friends The YaYas.

Rounding out a short month with lots of gigs, I'll be back on the island headlining at BACCA in Lindenhurst. My very special guest and friend from Australia, Kath Buckell will be opening the night.

Details for all shows are below and Facebook events are on my fanpage.

And if that weren't enough:
I'm very honored to have been selected by Alternate Root Magazine to be in the running to appear on their annual Valentine's Day Sampler. In order to make it onto the sampler, I need your help.
If you can please go here:

and VOTE for my song "Gotta Love That Man," I would really appreciate your support. Just think, if I make it onto the sampler, YOU can get a free download of my song, as well as downloads of the other artists included!

Lastly, here's a little video montage of the shows from January:
Wishing you all chocolate kisses, roses and lots of love,
Marci
