Way back in 1997 we started this band with the dream of creating great swing music like the Benny Goodman Sextet. Over 500 gigs and 7 recordings later we are thrilled to be celebrating 20 years together!
We are ready to celebrate this incredible milestone with a fantastic recording that showcases how far we have come! We'll play some of our favorite original and cover songs including many that fans have requested over years - like Duke Ellington's Caravan! Our goal is to create a great project that will set the stage for the next 20 years.
We will record with these amazing musicians:
Roger Campbell - Clarinet
Over the past several years we have had the distinct pleasure of working with Denver's best entertainer and singer, Lannie Garrett! Last year she was inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame for her tremendous accomplishments and fantastic career. We are thrilled and honored that she has agreed to guest star on this project! Look for her on several tracks.
Your help is essential to making this project a reality. CD sales are down across all styles of music. Spotify and Apple Music are taking a toll on track downloads too. Meanwhile recording studio and production costs continue to rise. To get our music out there and create something new, we need to be in the studio. Any amount you can pledge is greatly appreciated!
If we raise over $6000 we will use the extra money to record some holiday tracks! Many of our fans have asked about a Christmas CD. We'll use some extra studio time to jazz up songs like Let It Snow, Sleigh Ride, and Jingle Bells. How many tracks we record depends on how much this campaign raises. If we have enough, we'll cut a full CD! You can make it happen!
Thanks a million for your support!
Risks and challenges
Producing a CD is always a challenging endeavor, from rehearsing to recording, mixing to mastering, and production to distribution. Having done 7 CDs (and produced many more with other projects), we feel comfortable we can deliver this CD within budget and in time for Christmas. We are sinking a significant amount of our own money into this project, so we have lots of motivation to get it done right!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
