About this project

In the fall of 2013, the Cabot High School band ensemble decided as a group to become a professional band. It was a big commitment, but they were ready for it. By booking shows at professional venues, recording a CD, and promoting their work around the state, The Limes have been taking the community by storm. 

But it doesn't end there. Over the next few weeks, The Limes will be working even harder to bring their music to New England and beyond. However, the 20-piece band is a lot of people to take on tour. It's been estimated that it will cost around $15,000. 

With the money raised, The Limes plan to go on a June tour of New England and New York. They also plan to professionally record a CD.

The Limes are incredibly excited about this opportunity, and have turned to the Kickstarter community to help them raise the money necessary for them to travel and bring their music to a larger audience.

Thank you so much for supporting this project!

Update: Stretch Goal!

We've reached our original Kickstarter goal, but if we can raise a total of $2000, we’ll be able to record another track on our CD. We’ll also be able to break up a week of camping with one night in a hotel, so we can all take showers!

Risks and challenges

As with any musical/travel endeavor, unexpected costs and delays can pop up at any time. Throughout the year, The Limes have dealt with many of these unexpected setbacks, but have pushed through them to continue creating their music. We hope nothing terrible will happen, but we don't know for sure. We'll do our absolute best to figure out any problems so we can achieve our goals and bring our music to everyone.
