We have been working hard on our new CD, 'BROKEN 45's' for the past year, and are almost at the finish line. This will be our 6th full-length CD of all original blues. Things were on track until late summer when our guitars were stolen. We had to replace them right away which took every penny (and then some) that we had.

We hope you'll consider helping us this one time to put out the new CD. We are almost finished with the recording process at Echoes Recording which we've already paid for. The help we need is with the mastering, replication and distribution costs which come in right around $5,000. We don't really have much to offer other than music and love in return for your generosity.

For your $25 contribution we'll send you the download before it's released.
For your $50 contribution we will send you a signed CD.
For donating $100 we will include you in our list of thanks on the CD liner notes.
