***UPDATE 4/13/12**** We've reached our goal, and then some! We've decided that all funds we get over our initial goal will keep going towards the production of this album, making it far better (and possibly longer) than we originally planned. Even though we've already met our goal, you can still help us in ensuring this album is a great success!
Who are we?
We are The Long Johns from Tampa, FL. We're a ska/punk/powerpop hybrid
consisting of Stephanie Summerball (vocals), Josh Dykstra (bass), Matt
Bartholomay (guitar), Woody Bond (drums), Brian Ferreira (trombone) and
Justin Larsen (tenor sax). We've been a band for almost five years,
but this will be our FIRST legitimate album release.
What is this Kickstarter for?
Your donations will help us raise money to fund our upcoming, currently
untitled, debut album. Our goal is to raise at least $750 for recording,
mixing, mastering and pressing costs.
Why should I donate?
If you like what you hear, your donations will go towards the production
of a professional album that Kickstarter backers will have first dibs on.

right side of the screen! These rewards include: copies of the album,
shirts, posters, artwork, and original songs written specifically for our
When will the album be done?
We currently have over half the album written. Our goal is to have
the album recorded before summertime, and have it released to everyone in June or July.
I live outside of the US, can I still help?
Absolutely! We just ask that you add $5 to your pledge for international
