The Old No. 5s are a Roots Rock & Blues trio based in Kansas City, MO.  Our mission is to create art through the historically rich sounds of Americana Roots and Blues.  Our music is uniquely American as we take influences from the artists which came before us.  Until now, our personal finances have been able to support the creative ambitions of the group.  In the past, we have funded 100% of our projects with personal funds from band members.  We are an independent band and have chose to keep creative control in our own hands rather than seek support from a record label.

In order to complete our second album and first "original" album, we are in need of help with the final expenses.  These include production costs, mastering expenses, and promotional (advertising) support.  We are asking for a minimum of only $750.  This is the amount which is keeping us from completion.  With the thoughtful support of our fans and patrons here on kickstarter, anything above and beyond that amount will go to the promotion, and much needed advertising of the album.  All revenue from the album goes to future projects and the promotion of the band.  

Your contribution will support high quality live music, made by highly trained human musicians, with the revenues from the project going to further the band's future projects and ability to create more music.  Please watch our video to hear a track from the album and hear about the history of the band.

We believe that a lot of modern music hitting our airwaves is packaged as either raw brilliance or perfectly molded plastic.  We are a combination of classically trained, real world experienced professional musicians whom are yet to be discovered.  Our goal is simply to make a living as musicians and bring our art to the masses.

Risks and challenges

We are inches away from completing our all original project. The challenge comes in two main facets. Creativity, and production. In this day and age, production costs are immensely expensive. Studio time, mixing, mastering, pressing / packaging, and promotions for this project have started to add up. Throughout the creative process of this project, we have focused our teamwork skills to create the best all original album we could. three members having different backgrounds of musical academic, social, and artistic training will yeild beautiful creative results. Our largest challenge is promoting our art. There is very little free advertising in today's society. The greatest "true" artists often go unheard of; covered up by advertising and paid promotions. We recognize that if we want our art to reach our audience, we will have to raise funds to promote our art. This is where we need your love...
