Too Tight! Kickstarter

Dear Family, Friends and Fellow Musicians,
        A few weeks ago I made the trek from Colorado to Wyoming and Montana to record an album.  This project features myself of bass, Alex Nauman on guitar, Erik Olson on piano and organ, Gy Moody on percussion, Brad Edwards on drums and Ben Johns on saxophones.  The album is made up of all original compositions by Alex and Erik, written in the style of 1960s vintage Blue Note soul jazz.  We plan to make this a VINYL only release (That means no CDs, but digital downloads will be available on iTunes).
              Our group has set up a Kickstarter to help raise funds to press the vinyl. Depending on your level of contribution to the project you will receive a digital download of the album, a copy of the vinyl, bonus tracks, and more!  We need your help to make this record a reality.  The more money we raise the better the graphic design, the higher quality the vinyl and the more records we can press.  We also hope to book a small tour for the album release.  Please check out our Kickstarter website and watch our short promo video to preview the music here:

Thank you all for your generous support!
