About

We’re going to Adelaide, and you’re going with! 

        At the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2014, I put on a show called “The After Party w/ Alex Rossi”.  In 2019, I’m bringing “The After Party” to Australia for the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

In an effort to help fund our trip to Australia, I am starting a kickstarter campaign that raises money to cover the costs of travel and administrative fees, and turns our experience into an interactive product. From live concert feeds to behind the scenes looks into performing at the month long Adelaide Fringe Festival. Pledges will ultimately be used to produce a live album from choice moments in this years concert series. 

This is an amazing opportunity for me to bring my music and live performance to a new audience, along with having the experince of a lifetime traveling the world with my band.

If you don’t know anything about me, my name is Alex Rossi. I am a guitar playing, singer-songwriter from Minneapolis, Minnesota. Jimi Hendrix changed my life, and although my original music consists of many genres, my roots remain in the Rhythym & Blues. I am blessed to have been able to make my living playing music, and lucky to have seen so much of this world through the lens of a performer for so long. Returning to the fringe is a special achievement to me because it brings me the opportunity to see a new part of the world that I have yet to experience, but also reconnects me with friends from festivals past. I made a lot of great friends while I was in Edinburgh for the Fringe. The thought of us coming back together again is very exciting for me! Equally as exciting are the artists and performers that I will be meeting and discovering for the first time in Adelaide.

Along with the Album being released online, there are levels of pledging that will get you a hard copy CD of the album, along with personalized options, and exclusive content as the amount goes up.

My goal is to create an incentive for helping us fund the costs of this trip. The formula is easy. Any amount will help make the album a reality, but as the pledge amount goes up, so does your access to the experience. Help me make this festival a success and get ready to go to Adelaide !

Risks and challenges

The potential risks involved are significant. If I fail to raise the funds I need, I will be unable to pay for the musicians and production that I’ll need to ensure that the shows are great. Although I am asking for $15K, that is only half of what is needed to make this show happen. I have a promoter in Australia that Is taking half of the investment on. This has been amazing help in covering the costs of the festival administration, but means I’ll have to break even with only 50% of the ticket revenue. I have only the most positive outlook, but if the show fails, there are some nasty numbers in the costs that I’ll have to swallow. Financially this could be a big hit. I’m hoping that this campaign will ensure that we get to Australia with the amount of money that we’ll need to invest in making this show the success that it deserves to be.
