Frobeck is to release their fourth and most compelling full length album on August 25th.
Frobeck is about to finalize recording our fourth and (we think) most compelling full length album to be released on August 25th. YOU CAN HELP US FINISH THIS MASTERPIECE!
Here's the story!
Frobeck is an award winning funk/rock band based in the north bay area above San Francisco. Since starting out in 2005 we've honed our skills, added a few players, and independently released 3 top notch full length albums, as well as two music videos and a brand new smokin' hot website, all while performing in various California venues. We've opened for Booker T, Bill Champlin ( Sons of Champlin), WAR, Ozomatli, Los Lonely Boys, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk and more, and have gotten rave reviews along the way. In 2008 with the help of our loyal fan base we won a Norbay award for best rock band in the north bay, attracted professional management, and added in a powerful horn section and a backing vocalist. In 2012 we are back to promoting ourselves independently as a fully DIY (do it yourself) band.
Our new album, "624" - two years in the making, will be a new full length recording featuring 12 incredible original songs written by the band's prodigious songwriting / frontmen, Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck. This album will capture the "FROBECK" sound, the tasty bass styling of Steve Froberg, Burrow's astounding vocal wizardry, the drum genius of Jon Lazarus, and the ultimate sweetness of Dilbeck's guitar riffage. What makes this release unique is that it will be the first to feature the "Frobeck Horn Stars"- Alex Scammon, Cayce Carnahan, and Alex Garcia - and current backing vocalist Callie Watts. Plus a big bonus: Bill Champlin, World famous super-singer-songwriter-soul-man, will be joining us with a guest appearance!
We are on the verge of hitting it big-time! Take a listen. We hope you like what you hear. But until then, here's where the money would go:
$700 (reimbursement) for tape and equipment preparation
$3000 for all performing musicians on the recording. A modest reward for their time, hard work, and dedication to creating this masterpiece.
$1500 CD duplication
$1000 mixing and mastering
$800 publicity and advertising
$500 video documentation
$1000 hospitality and miscellaneous
We cannot stress enough to you how excited we are about the new album and how incredibly thankful we are for your contributions! Thank you Thank you Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Spencer Burrows and Kris Dilbeck
