We take Nickelback songs and turn them into authentic Motown jams. Let's make an album!
FLASH FORWARD TO PRESENT DAY: Viral internet sensation A Motown Tribute to Nickelback finds itself on a bill alongside The Tragically Hip, Chromeo, Charles Bradley, and others at Virgin Mobile's Live at Squamish in August. Only one problem...they aren't a "real" band... YET.
Since the announcement in May, the band has taken huge strides towards legitimacy by showing up to do a photo shoot and creating a Facebook page. Only one hurdle remains: a studio album of Motown-styled Nickelback covers. This is where YOU come in.
We're asking for your help to cover the studio and licensing costs involved in creating a full-length CD of Nickelback hits- each one painstakingly transformed via the classic Motown sound.
Help A Motown Tribute to Nickelback pay tribute to legendary modern rock icons...by redo-ing all of their songs so that they sound like classic Motown tunes instead.
