Chris R. Hansen & the Down Home Horns & Hark Up Choir are finalizing their newest recording, Home Coming Classics and More. Support it!
Chris R.Hansen's Down Home Horns (Gospel Dixieland) have been around since 1994. The group has released 6 recordings over the past 18 years with three recordings being done in the last 3 years. As we expand our base we are excited about our newest project "Homecoming Classics and More..." that we have recorded with the "Hark Up Choir". This newest recording is almost finished but we need about $2000 more for printing, packaging, reproduction, etc. to get this project out. We are so thankful for our fan base and how you have supported us in the past. We hope you would consider helping us again to get over this last hurdle so we can offically release this project. It will feature 14 songs and feature some of our younger singers including Eric Billin, Geoff Hansen and Breighanna Minnema and Heather Larson and of course our very talented instrumentalist including; Paul Keen, Hugh DeWitt, Joe Mason, Dave Ksycki, Scott Pedersen, Mike Hathaway, Charlie Royce, Kris McKay, Aaron Hettinga, Dana Lasswell, Nick Valenziano, Ken Tracy, Don Hooker, Chris Moberley, and more. We think you will enjoy the arrangements of these old classics, done with a new and fresh twist. With every contribution you will recieve some great incentives, from recordings to T-shirts and even a personal concert by the band. Thanks for considering to help us with our latest project.
