About

DEAD LAST is a musical group who's origins date back to when "Classic Rock" was just called "Rock", & aspiring young Rock musicians couldn't wait to play at the next local party, dance or back yard jam.

While walkin' down the street on any given summer day, chances are you'd be hearing live music Rockin-Out from somewhere in the neighborhood. It was New York in the 60's. Music was going to change the world & we were all invited. This was where the original members of DEAD LAST, while still in school, first met & began playing together.

Maintaining a musical relationship throughout the years, even when separated, they continued working together whenever possible. The result today is one of the most fun & best jamming bands around, with a massive body of original material spanning decades.

Always an INDIE Band, DEAD LAST needs your support so that they can record & make available an Album, slated for release in 2017. It will contain 100% "New Classic Rock", which is a term the Band came up with in 2010, meaning: Classic Rock You Never Heard Before!

Donations will pay for studio costs, musical equipment replacement/upgrades, hardware/software upgrades, overall production expenses & what's left over will be put towards promoting the album.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! for checkin' us out! :))

Risks and challenges

Q: What is DEAD LAST?
A: DEAD LAST is a musical group with roots dating back to the 1960's, using the name "Dead Last" since the 1990's, which was first published online in 2001. It is a Sole Proprietorship registered and operating in the State of New York and is not connected with any charitable interests, political agendas and/or religious persuasions.

Q: Are there any individuals, companies and/or agencies with any ownership, control over and/or interest in DEAD LAST?
A: No.

Q: Has DEAD LAST ever had a project on Kickstarter before?
A: No.

Q: How do I know DEAD LAST will deliver what it promises?
A: The members of DEAD LAST are all highly accomplished musicians who have performed, written, produced and recorded their own music numerous times since the 1970's. Just a few of their songs are contained within the Video posted here. They also have no natural enemies that we know of (although sharks & bears might be a problem).

Q: Will any Songs in the Video be on the Album?
A: It's possible, but there's a LOT of stuff to choose from & we're coming up with more every day! Also, we'd like the Album to flow well as a Piece, so the songs we choose will probably be reflective of that.

Q: Will the Audio/Video footage that you're making available to some backers be live?
A: It could happen on special occasions, but in most cases Audio/Video files will be uploaded after we do whatever we did lol

Q: What size Concerts are you planning when the Album is finished?
A: We'll be looking at various size Rooms & Concert Halls - including Outdoors! The moment we know more, all Live Concert Information will be posted on our website at: http://deadlast-is-here.com

Q: Is the Sound Studio in the Video where the Album will be made?
A: Yes (with Your help!). We named it "Pangea" & we use it mostly for Writing, Recording, Editing, Mastering, Video Editing & Making Incredibly Loud Noises that wouldn't be Legal anywhere else! You might also see us in different facilities around the country now & then... if they ever unlock the door to THIS place! lol

Q: How many people are in DEAD LAST?
A: 6 right now (unless the bass player wandered off again), although we also might invite a few of our all-time favorite musicians to join us on this Album!

Q: Why haven't I heard of DEAD LAST until now?
A: On occasion we've released music & played under different names, so there's actually a slim chance you could have heard us. But, mostly it's because we've always been an INDIE band.. which is why we're HERE :)

Q: How OLD are you guys?? lol
A: Old enough to do it Right!.. Young enough to still JAM all weekend long!! lol

Q: How can I learn more?
A: You can contact DEAD LAST with any questions or comments you may have at: deadlast_kickstarter@yahoo.com or visit our Website at: http://deadlast-is-here.com
