The Band

Triple Double Band hails from Tucson, AZ and pieces together an eclectic mix of influences to create a colorful and rich sound with a positive message.  They employ three part vocal harmonies, complex rhythms, funky bass lines, catchy sax melodies and an intricate yet driving piano in order to create their own special version of upbeat and feel-good indie rock.  Their compositions reveal shades of different genres ranging from jazz to reggae to hip-hop.  The band combines emotive melodies with poetic and catchy lyrics.

The Project

Thirteen months ago, Triple Double Band released its fourth album.  The have spent the last year working on BRAND NEW MATERIAL just for you.  An entire arsenal of new music is written, and ready to be recorded for the purpose of your enjoyment.  Triple Double is giving its fans a chance to make a difference and to be a part of the action.   We are inviting you to be a part of the musical process!  Luckily for you, we have our own studio, so the amount of financing is significantly lower than it would be if we had to pay for studio time in addition to expensive mixing and mastering.

The funds raised from this Kickstarter campaign will give the band more time to write, make and create music.  This means more songs, more frequent releases and more entertaining videos for you!

We will be going into the studio to cut the album later this summer and cannot wait to deliver it to our wonderful (and beautiful) fans!

Risks and challenges

Luckily, for us and our fans this is the fifth album that we have made as a band. So although making an album is an arduous, labor intensive and sometimes emotionally draining process, we have been in this situation before and we will persevere for our fans.

With that being said, this is our first Kickstarter (or first crowdfunding in general) campaign. The good news is that the musical recordings are the easy part. We have our own studio where we do all of our recording, and we have a great working relationship with Loveland Studios in Tucson, AZ for mixing and mastering. If anything the biggest challenge we will face are sending off and mailing packages to our wonderful fans who backed our Kickstarter.

Our fans however are so important to us that, just like in making the album, we will persevere and spread the music!!

You will also get to see us live in the studio if you choose the record option. For the live option you can play tambourine and/or shake your booty on stage for a song with us. This option also allows you to kick it with us before the CD release party, and might even include a free beverage!!! [Plus everything above]
