Our new album captures the live, raw energy of our shows and creates solar energy awareness!
Your pledge will help us finish production on our new album Counter.Culture.
This is the third Jay Trainer Band album, and our first with the current line up of Mike Roney on bass and Justin Achziger on drums. We came together with the goal of making a record that captures all the raw energy and spontaneity of our live shows. We are totally stoked by what came out of the studio session.
Now all we need is your help to finish production and get the album out there!
Ever since I started playing music, I have used my art to create awareness around causes that I believe in. Here in San Francisco we are working with the Artfulchange network of artists and musicians and NorCal Solar to get the word out!
It all starts Saturday, September 22 at our Café Du Nord Album Release Show. There, you can hear Jay Trainer Band, Segue, Roem Baur, and The Real Nasty for a night of rock, blues and funk you won't soon forget. Folks from NorCal Solar will be there to get you up to speed with their inspiring and hands-on solar guidebook.
Join us to produce an awesome record and support solar power!
