Greetings funkonauts! It’s a beautiful day here at the ‘shack, because it’s time for us to throw some love and music your way. After a few years spent refining a groove that’s launched a thousand booties, we’re recording our debut album! Better yet, YOU can be our record label.
We’re using Pledge Music, which is a great way for fans to be involved with the recording process. You can pledge to help us make the album and be rewarded with exclusives, depending on how much you pledge. If you go to our page, you’ll see a list of what we’re talking about on the right hand side. You can start off small by pledging $10 for a digital download of the album when it’s done or $15 for a CD (for the more tactile inclined amongst you). Going from there, the more you pledge the more you get – things like t-shirts, handwritten lyric sheets, signed drum heads, a burger date with “Burger” James Hebert (he’s buying), a disposable camera full of photos that we’ll take at the studio, a homemade pie baked by Lisa, a personalized Valentine’s Day video from us to whoever you choose – all the way up to your own private house party show.
In mid-February, we’ll be heading into the Halo with producer Jonathan Wyman to lay down some funky soul tracks. YOUR pledges are going to help us record this album with one of the best producers at one of the best recording studios out there. We may not have a record label or an agent, but we do have lots of people who love old-school funk and soul.
In a very real sense, YOU are going to help make our dreams come true.
So what can you do? The best thing you can do is pledge to help us make this album. After that, start spreading the word to your friends, family, enemies, milkman, pizza delivery guy, and random strangers you encounter. Point them to our page at PledgeMusic.com, tell them to sign up for our newsletter, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter – whatever works best for them. And THANK YOU for all the support from the past few years – there’s no way we could do any of this without you!
