We've tracked and mixed our new album. Help us master, package and release it digitally and on CD!

We spent two weekends in January hard at work tracking 17 tunes at the historic Old Can Factory in Brooklyn, NY and the results sound incredible! Now, we need your help to finish our second album and release it this summer. We still need to master the album, design the album art, make copies and promote it. We can get almost everything done with $5,000. However, if we raise enough, we can make a special limited edition vinyl release as well.

We've got a ton of great prizes for you to check out...CDs, special performance offers, Raya Brass Band gear, and more!

    We, Raya Brass Band, will accompany you for two hours on a ramble around NYC, serenading you and whoever you choose to bring along with you the whole time. You can invite your friends to a mobile Balkan brass dance party, riding around on the trains all day long to the sounds of rip-roaring brass band music. You can bring us to your former workplace to play a "special tribute" to the boss who fired you. We can follow you around while you go stoop sale shopping on a sunny summer Saturday. You can bring us to the stoop of your ex, either as a token of reconciliation, or revenge. We'll follow you and yours on the Staten Island Ferry for a dance party on the water. You can take us and your friends on the train to Coney Island for a beach party, with your very own portable Balkan brass band providing a lively ambiance for the whole journey. Its really up to your imagination, just make those two hours count!! (plus everything up to the $75 level)
