About this project

Hi! 

We are The Blondies, a Bay Area Rock band comprised of Simon Lunche, Frank Klopotowski, Zak Meghrouni-Brown, Paul Davis, and Jerry Feist. We met over 6 years ago and have been together writing and composing music and playing at some of the greatest venues, fairs, and benefit concerts ever since. Though you may have never heard of us, we’d like to invite you to join us on our journey.


We’re recording a full length LP, something we have been working toward for a very long time. Not just writing the music, but also learning the ins and outs of actually recording in a studio efficiently and professionally in order to get the most out of our studio time. 


We’ll be spending four days recording and four days mixing ten original songs at 25th Street Recording Studios in Oakland with Scott Bergstrom and Chris Solberg engineering. This is the goal we have been working toward for the past 6 years and we would really be grateful for your help.


Our recording costs are about $800 per day. We have already saved enough money through fairs, shows, and T-Shirt sales to record and release our EP but we still need to raise $8000 to cover recording, mixing, mastering and CD pressing for our first full length LP. Help us make this a reality by pledging to this Kickstarter. In return, we’re offering some fantastic gifts and services as well as a lifetime of great music!  

Thank you so much for your support.

Risks and challenges

Our music is supremely important to us. We are disciplined and focused on our goal. The past few years we have been diligent about writing, performing, and learning to record. We love making music and nothing will stop us now!
We are friends as well as musicians who love to play together. We have tremendous support from family, friends, and fans who are as enthusiastic as we are about recording our music. Together we can accomplish anything.
