We're raising the funds to make an awesome Holiday ALBUM!

We had such an amazing response to our Holiday tunes last year ("Cheer Up, It's Christmas" & "It Must Be Christmas"), we decided to make a Holiday ALBUM!!

It's already October. We have a head start but we need your help to make this happen.

We came up with some awesome Holiday themed rewards. Check em out and make your pledge NOW! We look forward to recording this album... and obviously, we look forward to you hearing it! ;-)

Thank you all SO much! -Jaret & Ryan

Don't know who we are? Well...

People on Vacation is an unlikely musical endeavor, to say the least. The Dallas-based band was as accidental as Silly Putty, Vaseline, or the whole "chocolate in my peanut butter” thing, if you ask the members.

Let's back up.

What happens when you mix Jaret Reddick (lead singer and songwriter of the fun-lovin', beer-soaked, and oh-so-Grammy-nominated band Bowling for Soup), Ryan Hamilton (singer and songwriter of the sad, somber indie rock group Smile Smile), and free reign over a studio with nothing but a drum machine, a keyboard and a few guitars?

Well, obviously, you get People on Vacation.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

Like we said, it's already October. We have a head start but we need your help.

We've started the writing process but need your pledges (and support) to get into the studio and start recording! After we finish recording, the album will be sent to the very talented Linus Of Hollywood for some mixing and mastering magic.

We're in a little bit of a time crunch, but we've launched this Kickstarter in plenty of time to record, mix and master... and tackle any challenges that come our way.

After we've finished the album, not only will you have it in plenty of time for the Holiday season... depending on what package/reward you purchased, your pretty face could be part of the album cover collage, you could get a personal Holiday greeting, attend an exclusive Stageit.com show, even have YOUR NAME mentioned in the bonus song on this album.

There's lots to do, but we can do it!
