It was almost 10 years ago when a small group of musicians came together in a dank practice space in the Georgetown neighborhood of Seattle. We all shared a love of Jamaican music, and began practicing to forge a sound inspired by all the classic Ska, Rocksteady, and Reggae artists we admire. Shortly thereafter, a band name was chosen that was in part a tribute to our ska heroes The Skatalites: The Georgetown Orbits.
At the heart of all our efforts have always been the fans. Every show, each album we've released, everywhere we have traveled. None of it would have been possible if it were not for your generous support.
Kickstarter allows us to be independent musicians by giving us a platform to let the people who love this music have a direct influence on this release.
The songs have been written and recorded for our 3rd full-length studio album. However, we still need the funds to get these recordings mastered and pressed. To all that contributed to our last Kickstarter campaign for 'Super Sonic' we give a heartfelt thank you. That album was a success thanks to your support. To everyone new to our sound, we bid you welcome, and hope to get a chance to meet you at one of our shows in the coming year.
Our talented lineup of musicians is as strong as it has ever been. With your help this album will be a big hit! Thank you.
Risks and challenges
We are confident that if we collect the necessary funds to release this album that risks and obstacles will be few. We have a good relationship with our mastering and CD manufacturing contacts as we have done business with them before. Barring any sudden setbacks (natural disasters, band members dying/disappearing, equipment being stolen etc...) we expect to have this album in our hands by the end of July.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
