Corn and the Colonels are a Pan-American string band based in Durham, NC. We want to record our first studio album!
This Kickstarter campaign is a chance for us to raise money to cover the costs of our first album, "Welcome to the City of Medicine." This first album features 4 original songs and one unique arrangement of a traditional tune that we have crafted over the past two years. The album will have the highest quality audio along with being professionally recorded and mixed. We are excited to have the opportunity to share our special brand of Pan-American dance music with all of our fans in their homes, cars and wherever else recorded music is heard. An advance purchase of our album or one of the great packages we are offering will add up to the money necessary to cover the costs associated with canonizing our efforts. We thank you for your support, for being our fans, for coming out to the shows and sharing us with your friends and family.
You will not be charged until we meet our modest goal of $1,500. If we do not reach our goal we will not receive any money and you will not be charged.
If we reach our goal of $1,500, you will be charged for what you pledged and the items you purchased will be shipped to you by the estimated delivery date listed in the description. Every pledge is rewarded from the smallest to the largest. Please view the sidebar to see what you can get!
It is also possible to raise more than our goal - the more support, the better! Whatever we raise before our deadline just helps us to make a better album.
Actually, our expenses for the project will likely total $2100 by the time we pay for packaging, recording, and kickstarter fees! Keep those donations coming!
