About

The Geoffrey Keezer Trio is working on 'On My Way To You,' an exciting new album of jazz covers and originals, and damn if these things aren't crazy expensive to make. So Geoffrey and the lads are hoping you can help defray the costs of this magical -- yet magically expensive -- undertaking via this Kickstarter campaign. If you're looking to simply purchase the album at cost, this would be the place to do it! Or if you'd enjoy shelling out a bit more for some sweet, sweet perks, there'd certainly be no objections on this end.

***BREAKING NEWS! From now through the end of the campaign (or until we reach our goal of $35K), a dear friend of ours will match your contributions 1 to 1, so your money goes twice as far!***

Below are the actual, non-inflated costs we're trying to cover in order to come somewhere close to breaking even. If you’re interested in donating beyond Kickstarter, simply drop us a line at contact@geoffreykeezer.com.

RECORDING $12K (studios rental/time, recording engineers, musicians' fees/travel/transport/meals/accommodation, videographer, mixing engineers, mastering engineers) 

PUBLICITY & MARKETING $17K (publicists, radio promos, album cover and press writing, crowdfunding campaign costs, video performance costs, video recording and production, advertising, outreach)  

MANUFACTURING $6K (CD artwork, cover design, CD pressing/burning/copying, physical and digital Distribution, mechanical licensing)

Terms and conditions for the reward tiers are in the FAQ section.

Thanks for considering this campaign!

    75-MIN. SHOW AT YOUR HOME + REWARDS 1-5

    Look, the world is divided into two types of people: those who'd drop five large to have Geoffrey Keezer perform a live 75-minute show in their home, and those who wouldn't do that. Which side of history do you want to be on?

    If you live in the mainland U.S., Geoffrey will fly to where you are (on his fancypants jazz person dime) and perform a slew of delightful tunes from his vast repertoire. And don't worry, he'll leave before it gets awkward and won't raid your refrigerator. Maybe offer him some juice or something, just to be a good host.

    See FAQs for terms and conditions. Rewards 1 through 5 also included. But seriously, offer the man some juice.
