About this project

We want YOU to be a part of the next Bop Skizzum album!

When we are on stage performing, it’s YOUR face we see dancing in the crowd. When we are writing new songs, we are ALSO thinking about what we hope YOU will like. So it only makes sense that we want YOU to be involved as we go into the studio to record our new album.

As independent artists, we don’t have a label backing us financially, so all costs associated with anything we do are solely our responsibility. We have begun recording a few songs, but most of the tracks will be recorded this summer.

There are a lot of costs (some obvious and some hidden) when recording an album, including: studio time, mixing each song, mastering the album, graphic design, copyrighting the album, printing & pressing at the manufacturer, promotional materials, paying to have the album distributed to online stores, plus all those ‘little costs’ that add up everyday.

The incredible thing about contributing to this project is that all of the money you pledge will go DIRECTLY to funding the Skizzum album (minus the small Kickstarter fee). PLUS by pre-ordering our new CD now, you’ll receive some really FUNKY SWAG! Check out all the cool rewards down the right side of the page - you could have a one-of-a-kind gem! When else will you get the chance to choose what color Andy Rok’s mohawk will be at the CD Release Party this Fall? ‘NUFF SAID!

A few things about Kickstarter:
1) If the project is not fully funded, you will not be charged.
2) But then no one gets any of the cool rewards!
3) We only have 30 days to pull this off!
4) CHOOSE WISELY - you can only pick one reward! (But you CAN get together with friends on rewards!)

We really want YOU to be a part of this record WITH US! So please pick your favorite reward, tell your friends and family, and join in the Skizzum Party! AHHHH YEAH!!!

We THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your continued support of Bop Skizzum & the Colorado music scene!
