Brass Roots Video: No foolin, it’s Kickstarter Time!

Hey Brass Roots fans, we have great, exciting news today!

The video marks the official launch of our campaign to raise the remaining funds needed to finish our documentary.

We need to raise $20,000 by May 4th so that we can collect all the donations and finish our movie. Please take a moment to watch our video, check out our Kickstarter project site and take the time to donate or to tell people you know about us!

Here’s the skinny on Kickstarter from their Web site:

Kickstarter is powered by a unique all-or-nothing funding method where projects must be fully-funded or no money changes hands.

Every Kickstarter project must be fully funded before its time expires or no money changes hands.


1. It’s less risk for everyone. If you need $5,000, it’s tough having $2,000 and a bunch of people expecting you to complete a $5,000 project.

2. It allows people to test concepts (or conditionally sell stuff) without risk. If you don’t receive the support you want, you’re not compelled to follow through. This is huge!

3. It motivates. If people want to see a project come to life, they’re going to spread the word.

For us, this isn’t a test — After 18 months of filming we want to go all in and finish our documentary so we can submit it to film festivals with deadlines at the end of this year.

We’ve made it easy to donate and offer rewards for every amount pledged; whether it’s $1 or $100 or $1,000, you can help us tell the story of New Orleans brass bands!

Pledge today and receive a special bonus reward: an exclusive digital download of one of our videos!

Thanks for all your support and wish us luck!!
