Pacific Mambo Orchestra is the new generation in Latin Big Band and we are in the process of recording our first CD!

By April 23, PMO aims to raise at least $10,000 to record 10 songs, 2 covers and 8 originals. (click on the video above for more info!). We will use these funds to pay the musicians, pay for the studio time, mixing, mastering and duplication of the CD!

You can be a very helpful component to a very good cause, YES! Right now! This is how it works:

First, check guidelines and your rewards here in the right side column - these are the rewards you are 'pre-buying'. 

To help PMO financially with this project, follow these steps:

Step 1. Check out the rewards (from lessons to pre-ordering CDs) 

Step 2. Sign up (favorite name and password). Pledge via credit card.

Step 3. If we make our goal, your pledge is charged. Follow the project via updates, collect your rewards... and bask in your awesomeness!!!

If PMO doest not reach the goal, your money will be refunded by default. How cool is that!

Are we asking you for charity? 

Ummm, not really. In essence, what we are trying to do is to make this dream come true with YOUR HELP, buying our CD in "advance".

Each dollar that you put in, will apply to the creation of this amazing recording.

Pledging on Kickstarter is hands down the hippest way, musicians are making studio recordings happen in this day and age.

Anything from $1 up to $5000 will help enormously for the cause!

YOU are important to us! 

PMO is a new Latin orchestra, led by Trumpeter Steffen Kuehn and Pianist Christian Tumalan. They have come together to realize a long time dream of forming a 19 piece Latin Big Band to bring back and build upon the sights and sounds of a by-gone era. Since October 2010, this band has created quite a buzz by establishing itself in just a short time as one of the most exciting live acts in the San Francisco Bay Area, featuring some of Northern California’s finest musicians. PMO’s music includes the sounds of Latin giants such as Tito Puente, Machito, Celia Cruz and many others and takes those rich traditions to another level with their own contemporary compositions and original arrangements.
