Hello, Friend -
Please help us get this record out on vinyl!
The Rakers have finished recording our fifth record, imaginatively titled NUMBER FIVE, and we want to press it on vinyl FOR YOU! Not for us, mind you. Why. Oh. Ew.
It turns out the vinyl pressing process is expensive and rock 'n' roll has not made us wealthy people, and it seems like people like helping. So here's your chance! We are offering opportunities for us to play your house, go on a date with you, or just get the record or a t-shirt or a CD when they are ready.

The Rakers are a five-piece original rock 'n' roll unit out of Baton Rouge, LA - often dubbed "The Thinking Man's Drinking Band" for purely alliterative purposes - we love drinking women and the drinking gender-fluid as well. Even more, tbh. Our music is erudite, packed with action and human foibles and tragedy and glorious excess.
Risks and challenges
We are financing everything ourselves for this record. That's right. We already produced, mixed and mastered it out of our own not-so-deep pockets. So we are using this Kickstarter as a way for fans to order the album early and help us get Leon's furniture out of the pawn shop and get some sweet Rakers merch in the process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
