Help Zony Mash + Horns record and produce a double CD of music recorded live at The Royal Room, Seattle.

We did It. THANK YOU to everyone who has supported the Zony Mash + Horns project and helped us to reach our goal of $10,000!  
Please keep spreading the word and supporting Zony Mash + Horns!
In celebration of reaching our goal we are adding a few new items.

Anyone purchasing VIP seating, including those who have already purchased it, will receive a signed CD of Zony Mash live at the High Sierra Festival, released only as a limited edition for this event, plus a Best of Pigpen CD including a rare vinyl single  digitized for the first time.

Also, bowing to demands for reserved seats at a lower cost we will now offer the following:
Limited reserved seating for two people for each night. $40 for 2.  Specific seat location is not guaranteed and may be on stage side riser or bar side of the room, depending upon availability. The best seats for each night will go to those who pledge first and premiere seating will take priority. But you will get a seat and you will be able to get in if we reach capacity. Limit 20 per night.

When we set this goal, we wanted to set a reasonable dollar amount that we felt would be attainable and we are all thrilled to see that we met the goal with time to spare.  

Though we are now funded sufficiently to release the album, it is a very tight budget. We have great engineers, great gear and great musicians, and the expenses for production, graphics, plane fares, posters, handling fees from Kickstarter and Amazon and artist fees will cost more then our Kickstarter goal.  Any funds we raise from this point forward will go towards meeting these expenses and will allow us to create the best possible package, have the mix time we need, and provide the highest quality final product.

THANK YOU!

Zony Mash+ Horns:                                                                                             Wayne Horvitz (Hammond B3, Fender Rhodes, Synthesizer)

Zony Mash made its debut in late 1995 as the unofficial house band at the OK Hotel in Seattle, where the newly formed quartet developed their sound on a regular Tuesday night gig that lasted for over two years. Although named after a tune by The Meters, Zony Mash was not a Meters tribute band. Zony Mash drew heavy inspiration from the past, but never succumbed to derivative nostalgia. Imagine instead a uniquely modern, unpredictable take on a Fillmore-era groove and a bandleader bent on pushing music in new directions. In the end, it is Wayne's unique harmonic and compositional sense that sets Zony Mash apart. The band played to audiences worldwide, at some of the most prestigious festivals in the world including  Montreux, Vancouver, Pori, North Sea and the Warsaw Summer Jazz Days. They played extensively in clubs in Seattle and down the West Coast, blowing away jam band and modern music fanatics alike and garnering critical acclaim. The band's breadth of vision was evident in its choice of special projects, including shows with Michael Shrieve (Santana), Bill Frisell, Matt Cameron (Soundgarden), Robin Holcomb, John Zorn, Mark Ribot, and finally a series of shows with a four-piece horn section: the birth of Zony Mash + Horns.

The original lineup of Zony Mash was: Wayne Horvitz – Hammond B3 and keyboards, Timothy Young – guitar, Fred Chalenor – bass and Andy Roth – drums. Keith Lowe replaced Fred Chalenor on bass in late 1998. Five Zony Mash CDs were recorded: Cold Spell (1997), Brand Spankin' New (1998) and Upper Egypt (2000) on Knitting Factory Records; Live In Seattle (2002) on Liquid City and Farewell Shows (2004) a live recording of the quartet's final performances at the Rainbow in Seattle, on Kufala Records. To date, Zony Mash + Horns has not recorded.

Since 2009, Zony Mash + Horns has performed in the Pacific Northwest and toured Europe in the summer of 2010, including appearances at the Moers Festival, Porgy and Bess (Vienna), and the Bimhuis (Amsterdam).
