I received a batch of the long-awaited DVDs of The Perfect Exit and it is damn near perfect:
Starting with Dan The Man Harshberger's excellent graphics (turn the DVD over and you will see that the Exit logo is backwards and the drum sticks are in front of it, as it would be if you were looking at the front from the back. Ha. Too clever.
Tom and Nicole Erickson did a fine job on the production of the DVD and there are a whole slew of extra bonus materials inside, including behind-the-scenes video of the fateful rehearsal (right up to the last second before a certain heart attack) and great photos of Kingman in the sixties. It really is going to be a historic document because of all the old pics, film and coverage.
Here's the pitch from the Jamie:

Dear Friends of KRMC:
As you may recall, on Saturday March 28th the KRMC Foundation hosted “Music is the Doctor: A Lifesaving Opportunity”. This event was a combination auction and dance—with live, classic rock ‘n roll music from the ‘60s and ‘70s presented by The Exits Family—a group of nine musicians who grew up or lived in Kingman as teenagers, and five of their talented friends. (In addition to playing for free, the musicians provided auction items and other donations including proceeds from the sale of a vintage Fender guitar, donated to the event.) The funds raised were used to purchase 15 automated external defibrillators (AED) for communities served by Kingman Regional Medical Center.
Over seven hundred people attended “Music is the Doctor” and it was a blast. In fact, it was so much fun, that we decided a commemorate DVD of the event was needed which is now available for purchase at a cost of just $25 (you will also receive a poster from the evening.) The DVD includes great photos from the early days of Kingman and the Exits Family. You might even see pictures of yourself!
To purchase your DVD, you can fill out the attached form and send back to me, call (928)757-0664 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. These will make great holiday gifts. The monies will help to provide additional defibrillators in our community.
