About this project

 

Leagues Forming Now!

The League Bowlers started as a side project of my band, Watershed. Over time, the band took on a life of it's own and eventually settled on the classic Bowlers lineup of Jim Johnson (Drums), Mike Parks (Guitar), Dan Cochran (Bass) and myself on vocals and guitar. It's hard to believe this lineup has been together close to twenty years. 

Over that time, we played bars and hung out in bars. The League Bowlers are a bar band. No bar was too big or too small. We also managed to write and record some great tunes. Some Balls Deluxe will have all your favorite Bowlers classics like Pretty in a Slutty Way, Kids Down South and Half of Me, along with new tracks such as So Far Away From Heaven and She's My Inspiration. 14 songs in all. Maybe it's 15. Either way,  It's a helluva lot of rock n roll.

And even though the music is killer, the artwork might be even better. Some Balls Deluxe is a CD you will want to hold in your hands and stare at in wonder. You also get liner notes from the one and only Ricki C. 

This CD will not be available online after this campaign so if you want to add this priceless gem to your collection now is your chance. I hope you can support this worthy cause and purchase a copy. You will be glad you did. - Colin Gawel 07/22/17

Tentative Track Listing: Beer Frame Boogie , Kids Down South, Pretty in a Slutty Way, The New Girl, Half of Me, Here I Am, Thinkin About Some Drinkin', Saturday Night There's A Party, She's My Inspiration, Two Sets of Rules, I Wish You Were My Girl, Healthy Rivalry, So Far From Heaven

Risks and challenges

The original Some Balls was recorded in 2004. The new tracks were recorded in 2017. It's amazing all the Bowlers have survived this long to make Some Balls Deluxe a reality. We aren't looking to profit from the campaign, just pay the folks who worked on the record and for the actual pressing. I'll be honest, the band is dealing with some health issues and time is at a premium. We want to get this record out ASAP. Or else Jim will have to pawn his drum kit to pay for everything to make it happen.
