Fredo Ortiz Debut Solo Album - BONGOLOIDZ

$17,922

245

What's up y'all!  Your good buddy Fredo here... 

After years of playing on everyone else and their mother's record, I decided it was finally time to make one of my very own.

I'm reworking some of my old creations as well as creating new ones to present to the public my very first solo project entitled BONGOLOIDZ!  

Not only will I be on drums, but also performing the guitars, bass, vocals, and much much more!  

Plus there will be very special guest artists on some of the tracks - names you will recognize. 

It will be an eclectic, independent masterpiece!  (Well as close to a masterpiece as I can get...)!

I am nearing the finish line, and need YOUR help to see this project through to fruition... 

  If music inspires you then step up and make a pledge, and be a part of my debut solo project while enjoying some schweet rewards for your generosity!

  Making a record can easily cost 30-50-100K or more, but I've set my goal amount to cover the absolute bare minimum that I need to make this album.  

  I'm choosing to do everything as low-cost as possible, while still maintaining professional quality - FOR YOU!

All pledges will strictly go towards equipment, studio time, mixing, mastering, design, production, pressing, merch, promotion, and fulfilling your rewards.

  As it works here on Kickstarter, if I don't reach my goal by even a penny, I don't get any funding, and everyone will be sad...

  But if I am blessed enough to surpass my goal, the record just gets better!  I get to cut less corners, and focus on doing a top notch job - for you to enjoy!  

WE HAVE 30 DAYS - LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!!!

  Help spread the word about my campaign - post links to this page on your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and your blogs, tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell your homies, tell complete strangers... 

  Your support is crucial!  I've put a lot of my own dough into this project already, and I need YOUR help to raise the rest.  With your contributions, YOU determine whether this album is completed!  

  Rewards are limited, so get 'em while they last!  And remember too that you are free to donate more than the specified amount for any given reward package.  

  Only with your help can I go ALL THE WAY and release my first solo record - so join the cause and make a pledge TODAY!

 

And, thanks everyone in advance for your love and generosity!!!  

  As an independent working musician, I deeply and truly appreciate all of your support!!!

  Sincerely Yourz,

  Fredo
