The Infatuations starting a Kickstarter campaign to record a special 5 song live E.P. and Video series at GBS Detroit this September.
The Infatuations are heading to GBS Detroit!
We're heading to GBS Detroit this September to record a special edition 5 song live E.P. and a series of videos. What make's GBS Detroit so special is that all bands and sessions are recorded LIVE in one room, by one band, in one take. There will be no studio tricks ladies and gentelmen. That means NO over-dubs, NO re-do's and NO auto-tuned BS! Plus, the cameras will be rolling the whole time, with the videos being featured on GBS Detroit's site. This is pure Infatuations music the way it was meant to be heard, live, loud and raw from Detroit!!
We're doing a Kickstarter campaign to raise the $1,200 needed to make this happen. But we're not here just asking for cold hard cash, when you pledge money to this project you'll get all kinds of great rewards, including the opportunity to be in the studio audience during the session!!
So, look on over to the right and choose the reward that most rocks for you. It's easy! Help us make the most of this awesome opportunity to rock out on camera and show the world what great, live modern motown music should sound like!
