"Sasquatch Fashion Watch" (home recording)

 The Newest Genre to Music

Mountain Rap is an original blend of rap and jam/musical improvisation. Be.Man, aka Brandon Bergman, created this musical genre and Jules Bergman created the Mountain Rap brand of clothing apparel. Be.Man raps about mountain life then improvises electronically manipulated acoustic guitar over his hip hop beats. People are incredibly enthusiastic about the music.  Folks come out to dance, sing along and purchase homemade CDs and handmade merchandise.

The Interest is Growing

Jules runs the family entrepreneurship from the merchandise table selling gobs of homemade, one of a kind concert t-shirts, head sleeves and CDs.  It started with people wearing the shirts all over town - now folks are rocking Be.Man gear nationwide!  We are enjoying success thanks to a wonderful community in Salida, CO and friends listening to our music coast to coast. We have fans from the East Coast to L.A. and Minnesota to Texas. It's a beautiful national, community effort.  We are goin' Colorado BIG!!!

We Want You to Be a Part of the Excitement!

World Class Drummer/Producer, Greg Schutte

Great Musicians Will Help

It is not going to be expensive to record this album. Our budgeted goal is $4800. Every dollar we make over our goal will go back into the recording. 

World class producer/drummer, Greg Schutte has two weeks in November open for us at Bathtub Shrine Recording Studio facebook.com/BathtubShrineRecording in Minneapolis, MN. Greg plays with Dave Schools (Widespread Panic) widespreadpanic.com/bio and Mickey Hart (Grateful Dead) mickeyhart.net in the Mickey Hart Band.  Greg will drop beats and female singers will harmonize on the world's first Mountain Rap record!  We have been working our entire lives for this opportunity.  Please help us make it happen. LET'S GO BIG!!!

Here is How We are Going to Do It

Through your help sharing and hyping the project with everyone you know, we are certain to hit our goal and then some! Each one of us is the key to our success. We will raise funds by offering original, one-of-a-kind Rewards for backers. Rewards include homemade concert t-shirts and CDs, downloads, original handwritten lyric sheets, set lists used on stage and donated works of art from four internationally recognized local artists. Supporting artists: Jimmy "Rocketman" Descant DeluxeRocketships.com, Carl Bork CarlBork.com, Brinkley Messick BrinkleyMessickArt.blogspot.com, and collected works from the late, great Mark "eYebaLL" Kneeskern AmericanEyeball.com Tragically, Mark was killed by a train 3 days after the first draft of our promo video. His family gave us their blessing to keep him involved. He is deeply loved and missed. I will be recording Mark's beautifully positive rap song "I Think You're Special" on the world's first Mountain Rap album. 

Mark painted this during one our performances this last summer.

Risks and challenges

The only risk is if there is a cataclysmic event. This is not our first rodeo. Between Greg and I we have thousands of hours logged in the studio with countless sessions completed. You can feel assured that this project will be done masterfully and with great success. Share in our success.
