By popular demand, Austin-based sardonic honky-tonk bluegrass band, The Possum Posse is recording their first full-length studio album.
Hailing from the West Texas town of Clyde (and currently based in Austin), The Possum Posse is one of the top sardonic honky-tonk/bluegrass bands in the region. The band wins over even the most skeptical audiences with its memorable and often over-the-top originals as well as mashed-up versions of urban cult-classics and girlie-pop favorites. The end product is a stage show that is hard to dislike.
The Posse recently achieved notoriety through a web-based video series called "Guy On A Buffalo," featured on Attack of the Show's Around The Net, Today's Big Thing for 2 consecutive days, and numerous radio and tv stations across the US, as well as countless blogs, podcasts and forums around the net.
Due to the overwhelming encouragement and response to the web series and The Posse's free-to-the-public, low-budget demo E.P. (What's Goin' On With Grandpa)... The Posse is heading into a real life World-class Recording Studio to record a brand new album of original material!
Support this project and get some really awesome rewards... like a "Guy On A Buffalo" Possum Posse T-shirt, a personalized "Guy On A Buffalo"-style voice message from Jomo, and of couse, a digital download of the album BEFORE IT IS RELEASED!
We are asking for a sizable amount of support because, well... producing, promoting and distributing a record is not easy or cheap, especially if you do it right... and we want to do it right! It takes lots of time, effort and unfortunately, money, but with your help, we can spread the music and humor of The Possum Posse to the world!
The project doesn't happen unless we meet our goal - and you won't be charged unless the project happens... so pledge now!
Thanks for checking out our project. We encourage you to give, even at a small amount - because every bit helps!
