Kickstarter! Plant Studios Vibe Light: Recording Do Not Enter

Calling all music makers! Would you like some old school vintage vibe for your recording studio or music making space?

This is an opportunity to bring a piece of music history into your creative space. It will make a great gift for your favorite audiophile, recording engineer, producer and/or music fan!
This sign used to serve as a warning "Recording : Do Not Enter" above the door to Studio A Live Room in the legendary "Plant" in Sausalito
History : 
From the early 70's to early 2008, many celebrated and successful music artists walked under this decorated light panel image into the live room of Studio A. Artists as diverse as Kronos Quartet, Rick James, Sly and the Family Stone, Dave Matthews Band, Prince, Metallica, BeyoncĂ© walked these hallowed halls, where they absorbed the legendary "vibe." 
This historic sign is one of the few items rescued from The Plant Studios when the business was forced out of the 2200 Bridgeway space in Spring of 2008.
Although ten years have passed, we still hold on to the dream of returning to the space and restoring the studios, so future generations can make some music history of their own. 
Until that day comes, we are thrilled to share this legendary "vibe" sign with the hope that it will inspire musicians all over the world to create some great music! 
Stretch goal $22,000,000 ( only half kidding...but it would definitely go a long way to employ and house many musicians and artists, while providing many at-risk kids with music/arts education! ) 
Check out our rewards here, and please feel free to contact me through the campaign:

Thanks for reading and please feel free to share. Hope you can join us on this journey - music is a vehicle for change!
