We are the Half Dozen Brass Band, Athens, Georgia's only authentic New Orleans-style brass band. Featuring members who have played with the likes of Ray Charles, the O'Jays, Michael Wagner, Antsy McClain, and Maynard Ferguson, we have been bringing the sounds of New Orleans to the masses since 2008. After only one year of performing together, we were awarded best Jazz Band by Athens' own Flagpole magazine in a city known for producing the likes of the B-52s, R.E.M. and Of Montreal. We are seeking financial support to assist in covering the costs of producing our second album. Our debut record, Easy Street, put us on the map. We are now ready to go back into the studio and spread some more of that Big Easy soul.

While we can produce a CD for $3,000, we would love to raise $5,000 dollars to help cover the costs of marketing and promoting the CD as well as throwing a bad-ass CD release party for all our fans. Check us out at the links below:
