We're taking the fusion of 6-part vocal awesomeness and the power of a full band from stage to studio. Now, all we need is you ;-D Read more

About this project
We're so pumped about this project that currently features amazingly talented vocalist Marc Broussard, Jazz Saxophonist Mindi Abair (Concord Records) and a team of brilliant instrumentalists produced by Los Angeles based, Jamey Tate (Drummer / Composer for David Benoit, Al Jarreau, Christopher Cross, Quincy Jones, Melissa Manchester, Kurt Elling, Bonnie Raitt) Clark Germain (Grammy award winning & Emmy-nominated recording producer/engineer for Sting, Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, The Fray, and others!) is onboard as well ;-D Take a quick listen to what it is sounding like so far:
We've shelled out all of our hard-earned pennies AND lunch money to get this group off the ground, on the road and in the studio. Now deep into the process, we've been so honored to have world class musicians donate their time and creativity to this concept. It also gives us hope that we're not completely crazy (it's a long shot... we know). Your support will provide studio time, musicians, and the means to produce, promote, and distribute this project, making our dream something everyone can get down to ;-D
From the bottom of our hearts, thanks in advance to you and to everyone who let us crash on a couch and raid your fridge during our cross-country recording process. Be sure to check out the rewards and visit us at www.notaboyband.com for more music & videos.
Risks and challenges
We're working to create something that appeals to every day music lovers, a capella fanatics, and instrumentalists alike. To meet that challenge we're experimenting with countless recording methods- from everyone in a studio performing together, to soloists in "open" living rooms singing to pre-recorded vocals, to dancing while recording- all to create a streamlined organic sound that you can FEEL no matter your taste or background... Oh yeah.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
