FishBird is a new dark rock jam band, featuring Kenny Klein, a fairly well known musician, author and photographer, and Rachel Maxann, former lead singer of Elemental Groove Theory. FishBird is a big departure in style for both musicians. This summer FishBird will tour, going to Brushwood Folklore Center in Sherman, New York, where we will record several concerts to create a live CD. The CD will be professionally recorded, and well mastered, and will become commercially available as an indy recording. We need your help to defray our travel and production costs in order to to get the whole band from New Orleans to New York. There are great gifts for doing this, including hoolah hoops, original artwork, creepy dolls, and our undying eternal devotion.
If we exceed our projected funding, we will do a second CD in a recording studio once we are back in New Orleans, and every contributor over $50 will get one.
Thank you, we love you!
Risks and challenges
The biggest obstacle we face is in getting the full band, with equipment, from New Orleans to Brushwood in Sherman, New York. The bass player and drummer can do gigs here at home, so touring is a risk for them. That's why we need your help in funding this tour. With any live show there is the very slim chance that recordings will be less than perfect, but we have worked with Brushwood's sound techs for many years, and they have never failed us. Once the tour is complete and the recording is done, we are confident that we will be able to successfully mix, master and manufacture a CD in the same quality as Kenny's dozen or so previous CDs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We would use any excess funding to record a second, studio CD in New Orleans. This would go out in all packages over $50. MP3s would go out by email with all lower packages.
