Beef Tea String Band has just finished writing their last song and is ready to go into the studio to record its debut album!

About this project

Together since 2004, Beef Tea calls Sheboygan County, Wisconsin home. Eric Hudak, Lucas Cleary, Dave Koebel, Court Ramaeker and Dave and Danika Williamson make up the group that is proud to be serving the great state of Wisconsin with great music! Every member of the group has a very different story to tell about their own musical background. Influenced by many genres, we have been playing traditional string music and covers, and now we are branching out with our first album of original string music that brings together our influences to create a unique take on the indie-grass sound. 

For years, audiences have been asking us if we have a CD, and unfortunately we've had to say "no."  Soon enough, we hope to be able to say "yes."  Creating a product that we can be proud of and our fans will enjoy is important to us, but we need your help with studio time, mixing, mastering, and duplication costs.  Please check out the list of incentives to the right and consider helping us out. 

Thanks to everyone who has come out to see and support us throughout the years, and thanks to our newest fans.  You are why we do what we do, and we know you'll enjoy our finished product. 

If you have any questions, please contact us via email at beefteaband@gmail.com.

Your support means everything.

---David, Court, Lucas, Eric, Danika and Dave---

FAQ

  • Yes! We have much of the tracking complete, but we still have some work to do. After that, we need to have the album mixed, mastered, and duplicated. The costs add up quickly, and it looks like we'll exceed our initial estimates - we would be grateful to receive any additional support for our project. Thank you!
