With your help we'll be recording an album that will include seven of our best songs!

We would love nothing more than to make our music available to you! If you're not familiar with our music, check it out at this link!

EXACTLY HOW YOUR DONATIONS WILL BE USED:

UPDATE!!!...

We're shooting for a NEW GOAL that we originally thought was WAY out of reach! What seemed like too far off from ever being a possibility might just be possible with your help! So PLEASE tell your friends about this page! 

NOW: All donations beyond our goal of $550 will go towards trying to get PHYSICAL copies (along with our digital copies) distributed through online channels such as CD Baby and Amazon. (We'll have to put off saving for a PA system and such things for a while). This was originally never thought to be an option for us but since we've gone quite a ways past our goal we are going to shoot for getting these discs professionally replicated, printed and distributed as physical copies rather than just burning CD-R copies on our home computers as we planned originally to save money and settle for cheap, cheap, cheap home-made packaging. This means what you’ll be receiving will be MUCH nicer and MUCH better QUALITY!

HAVING PHYSICAL COPIES FOR SALE ON AMAZON ALLOWS US TO APPLY FOR GETTING TWO OF OUR SONGS ON PANDORA RADIO (It's one of their basic application requirements to weed people out). This would be a HUGE step towards getting our music out to a worldwide audience and possibly give us a chance to look into doing this thing on a much larger scale!! If we will ever have any sort of chance at being a “real” band, this could be it!

The difference here is that we had originally only set aside $120 for printing physical copies. Now we're looking at $900, but they'll be professionally done and MAJOR RETAILERS will accept them!

OUR NEW GOAL IS $1600 to $1700

HOW THE INITIAL $550 WILL BE USED:

$300 - The remainder of our recording expenses (we have most of it covered from money we received from shows we've played)

$120 - Getting our music for sale through mediums like Amazon MP3, iTunes, and getting a custom UPC code (bar code) for the album

$100 - Materials to make physical copies of the EP, and also for shipping materials for the shirts, photos and CDs

$30 - Printing photos and posters

AlphaCare Back and Neck Pain Center in Chanute, KS has offered to donate the T-shirts! Also, we'll be sure to get information from you about which size you'll need before sending them!
