Who We Are
We are The Broadway Boys, and with your help we will create A NEW BROADWAY!
Hello everyone, and thanks for stopping by! The Broadway Boys are singers from a variety of Broadway shows who take traditional musical theater tunes and create a new dynamic sound. Our members represent shows such as HAMILTON, WICKED, JERSEY BOYS, MISS SAIGON, MARY POPPINS, THE BOOK OF MORMON and so many more! There are all types of music on Broadway: Pop, Funk, Jazz, Rock, Rap, etc. We not only explore all of these sounds but we unite them. We are a diverse group and it is our goal to explore how Broadway unites all of us. In doing so, we are able to inspire and build new audiences to be as excited about Broadway as we are!
"If you love musical theater, you need to see The Broadway Boys. If you don't love musical theater, you need to see The Broadway Boys!" -Elizabeth Maupin, Orlando Sentinel
What We Are Doing
Our first album, “The Lullaby of Broadway," was recorded over 7 years ago. We are very proud of that album, however, a lot has changed with The Broadway Boys over the past 7 years. Since then, we have added great new singers, great new arrangements and it’s time for us to go back into the studio to record a great new album. What we don’t have is a great amount of money. RECORDING. IS. EXPENSIVE! And once you get past all of the studio, musician, mixing, mastering, pressing expenses, you have to deal with licensing rights, distribution, marketing, and press. This is what we are looking at:
We’ve been dreaming about and planning this project for years!. We love this music so much. So we really want to do this album. But we really want to do it right! And thats where you come in! So help by backing us now!
What You Get
We have an array of fantastic awards to get you inspired! We have everything from show tickets (house seats) and backstage tours (from cast members) to exclusive Broadway Boys merchandise and early access to music! Want to see how the album recording process works?!? We invite you into the studio, behind the scenes, to watch us record our new album, “A New Broadway!" We also invite you to help us choose our song list for the album. Several of our reward packages include special voting options that will collectively determine our album track choices. The song choices are:
- “You Will Be Found,” from DEAR EVAN HANSEN
- “Dear Theadosia,” from HAMILTON
- “Seasons of Love,” from RENT
- “Edelweiss,” from THE SOUND OF MUSIC

When You Can Hear Us
RIGHT NOW! We want to give you a taste of our new album. So we have recorded our first single: “Magic to Do” from PIPPIN. We arranged a day of video shoots, photo shoots and recordings! We called it our “Launch Day Event” and it was a SENSATIONAL! James Sampliner, musical supervisor extraordinaire has signed on as producer and co-arranger for the entire new album, including "Magic to Do." And he lit this arrangement UP!! Like, on FIRE!! We are so confident that with his talent and guidance, with our fantastic band, and with our amazingly talented singers, this album is going to be unbelievable! So what are you waiting for?
Many thanks for supporting us in this new venture. We are looking forward to watching this campaign grow with the help of our community.
And now…watch how much fun we have had getting this whole extravaganza going:
Risks and challenges
You probably already know, but we don't receive any money at all if the entire goal is not reached. But we have thought this through and, luckily, this is not our first album and so we have armed ourselves with great music industry friends and talent.
Timing/scheduling, licensing music rights, production, and marketing are all elements in releasing an album efficiently and well. Luckily, we have brought on incredible photographers, videographers, managers, producers, engineers, and distributors who see the value of this project. Every single one of them has chosen to come on board to affordably work towards bringing all angles of this project together.
And of course, the biggest hurdle, is raising the funds. But fortunately for us, that solution is you!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
