LAST CHANCE TO JOIN PROJECT JAZZ BOMB !
We’re Tara & The Jazz Bombs, a traditional jazz band based in Madrid with members from all over the world. We're passionate about jazz from the 1910s, 20 and 30s. We love its explosive beauty, emotion and energy and we want to share it with EVERYONE
This means one thing: recording. And to make it happen, we need your support.
Meet the band
Tara & The Jazz Bombs are:
Tara Lowe (vocals, bandleader) Cardiff
Hector Oliveira (double bass) Texas
Daniel Cabrera (banjo/jazz guitar) Madrid
Norman Frederick Hogue (trombone) New York
David Herrington (trumpet) Bristol
Andrés Freites (washboard, drums) Caracas
What's our story?
It all started 2 years ago at the hottest traditional jam in Madrid: "Hot Wednesday". That's where Tara met her jazz bombs, all massive fans of early jazz and established musicians on Spain's music scene. Tara fell madly in love with this music, so much so that at the end of 2018 she decided to start her own band: Tara & The Jazz Bombs was born.
The aim of this crowdfunding campaign is to raise the funds we need to cover the entire process of recording and launching our first EP: our reinterpretation of six lesser-known jazz tunes from the 1910s, 20s and 30s from artists such as The Boswell Sisters, The Mills Brothers, Chick Webb & His Orchestra and Billie Holiday, including new lyrics and some of our own arrangements.
Just so we're on the same page, an EP is like an album but shorter. Quality, not quantity, amigos. ;)
How will we use your pledges?
Like most bands starting out in this industry, we aren’t signed and we don’t have funding. DIY all the way, baby!
To make this project happen, we’ll need to invest an enormous amount of time and energy. We’re going to need your support, your love and, yes, you guessed it, your hard-earned cash. Everything we raise will cover all the costs related to the EP: recording studio, mixing and mastering; design of the CD artwork; and the manufacture of 1,000 physical CDs and of merchandise.
Beginning of February: recording, mixing and mastering of the EP.
Beginning of March: Manufacture of CDs and merchandise.
Mid-March: EP launch and delivery of rewards.
Whatever your tickles your jazz bomb fancy, there’s a reward pack for you: "Essential", "Jazzbombtastic", "Eco-friendly", "Chic", "Oh My Jazz Bomb" or "Family"!
If you support our project, you won’t just get a reward, you’ll be supporting us and joining us on an exciting adventure. With your collaboration we'll be able to make a quality EP that we'll truly be proud of and make 2020 a great year for Tara & The Jazz Bombs.
