About this project

Our band "izness" which is a 100% improv world, roots, folk jamband featuring Jackson Nash (Graham Nash's son), Melissa Snyder, Alan Farley, Mr. C, Carty Allmand, Bobby Lynn, and Scott Franklin Manning just bought some of the most incredible land on the North Shore on Kauai this month. We are in the process of developing an off the grid conscious community that grows our own food, hosts a holistic healing/midwife center, and produces outdoor solar/wind powered concerts. Right now we are raising money to build our nature amphitheater/stage through this Kickstarter project. Striving to use as many recycled/reclaimed materials and such, we will build a stage, erect solar panels, wind turbine, and materials to build composting toilets. The goal is to produce a weekly Sunday Concert on the land featuring our own band (most musicians from our community) plus special guests who are passing through Kauai. Right now we are discussing to host The Neville Brothers this Summer, as well as a few more surprises!!!

The land we bought is 5 acres and has a river with fresh clean water that runs throughout the entire property. Nestled between the base of the Ancient/Sacred Kalaheo Mountains and the pristine waters of Papa'a Bay, its purely magical. Our community of Farmers/Healers/Musicians/Craftsman are striving to be an example to the world on the Ultimate Sustainable Living Experience! 

The plan is to host weekly music concerts that are educational and fun for all ages and Be an Example that You can live Off the Grid and still enjoy life to the fullest! Check out our website for more Info, Videos, and Music www.izness.org
