Welcome to Week 1 of the 7 week Skafish 2009 holiday season giveaway contests:
Starting today, Sunday, November 1st and every Sunday for the next 7 weeks through December 13, 2009, I will be holding contests to give away 5 copies of a different Skafish item each week.
Now with me writing that pious religious classic “Sign of the Cross,” doesn’t it make sense to do this on Sunday, a Catholic holy day of obligation, lol? We can call it Surreal Santa Skafish Sunday!
This is better than a free download, as I will ship a physical product to your front door, via first class mail, completely on me. You can enter from anywhere in this world and beyond. With many goodies that have never been available for sale, there will be lots of surprises and I am thrilled about giving these holiday spirit lifters to you.
For the first giveaway, I am sending out 5 personally autographed copies of my first holiday jazz CD: Tidings of Comfort and Joy – A Jazz Piano Trio Christmas.
I want you to know that I deeply love this record and I believe you will too. It has already been considered by many critics and jazz aficionados to be one of the best holiday jazz records ever. The CD has received extensive international radio play and opened up Skafish to an entirely new audience. Also, check back in a couple of days here on my blog to read my first short article about my recollections of making this record, many of which have yet to be shared anywhere.
To be eligible to win, here’s all you have to do:
Leave a comment with the words Skafish Jazz in response to this post here on my blog, my Jim Skafish or my Skafish Band Facebook page, or my MySpace Skafish page.
On Twitter, Tweet this: Win a FREE autographed Skafish Holiday Jazz CD! http://bit.ly/O4j68
You can enter once on each site (up to 5 entries per person for each contest). It’s that simple!
Every Saturday for 7 weeks, 5 winners will be randomly picked and notified by email. Then, on each Sunday, a new contest will be announced. The giveaway contests last through December 13, 2009. Keep in mind that you can enter each of the 7 holiday season giveaway contests.
As the holidays can be an emotionally turbulent time for any of us, it is certainly my sincerest hope to bring you some brightness, light and fun this season! – Skafish
