What's up Nick-Bag Fam! It's your girl Leslie Adele`. This is going to be my first fo'real fo'real full-length studio album of original material. I've spent the last 3 years writing the songs for this album, and more recently, putting together the perfect squad of musical assassins. Lick for lick and chop for chop you'd be hard pressed to find a better group of funk beasts. Over the summer I was able to lock down studio time at Elevated Basement here in Savannah,GA. With musician/producer/engineer Shane Baldwin at the boards, and featuring some of the best wordsmiths Savannah has to offer, this project will be our best offering to date. Please know that Shake That Leg is just the tip of the funk world domination on the horizon. We are coming with the thunder and when we get there, WE WILL FUNK U UP!

In order to do that, we need your help. Recording, printing, distribution, and eventually a tour is not easy to do when you don't have a major label footing the bill. Crowd funding is the best way we can make this happen. You guys have been with us since the Tybee Island days and we want to take you with us on this journey as well. In return for your bottomless generosity, we have some amazing Kickstarter supporter exclusive gifts

While $1000 is not the total cost of the project, if we raise at least that it will be a serious head start. All funds raised over the initial $1000 will pay for the remaining studio fees, cd duplication, album promotion, tour expenses, and sound equipment for performances. I am also planning a block party fundraiser this fall. We will have a tech bar set up to receive Kickstarter donations, as well as having some of the best BBQ in Savannah for sale to help reach our goal. In addition to that, we'll be accepting cash donations and pre-orders for the album. We will raise the money for this project with your help. If not financially, we appreciate the love and energy you give at every show. That alone has pushed Nick-Bag to this point.

Now let me bring your attention to the album art. I'm just as excited about the art as I am the music. I have solicited visual, culinary, and mixology artists to create companion pieces based on the concepts in the album. The artwork and photographs will be available as gifts for you wonderful people that donate to the campaign in hard-bound coffee table books. Also, the gifts sold through the campaign are exclusive to Kickstarter supporters only, to reward all of you good people who supported us before the ensuing blowuptuation and world domination.
**Shipping costs are included in the prices of the campaign gifts**

As soon as you jump in head first to this Kickstarter party, PLEASE TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW, AND SHARE THE LINK.

LOVE U GREAT PEOPLE, AND FUNK U VERY MUCH!
Leslie Adele'

Risks and challenges

I think the biggest challenge is going to be the album duplication. While we want to be economical, we also want to provide ourselves the best chance for national visibility. So the duplication costs far outweigh the initial recording. Raising enough to cover that will be the greatest challenge. As far as the risk, I have put my own personal savings to secure the contracts associated with this project.
