What is this project all about?

This project is about realizing the cooperation of the Big Band with the phenomenal Dutch singer Fay Claasen both on concerts and in the studio. After the band's debut "Live in 2019" now the plan is to record a studio album. This will still happen in summer 2022.

What is the project goal and who is the project for?

Our goals are:

  • realizing concerts
  • (11.6. in Jazzclub Lübbecke
    12.6. open air in Bockhorst
    13.6. in Jazzclub Unterfahrt in Munich.)

realizing a studio production in August 2022

  • manufacturing CDs and Vinyls!

The project is for people, that are keen on culture and that want to help us get out of the Lockdown Blues..!

Why would you support this project?

If you find it worth investing in, when someone writes honest, handmade orchestral Jazz music, when someone puts together an ensemble from all over Europe and thus creates an uncomparable peace project, then you're at the very right place here! :)

How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded? 

The money will be used for:

  • fair pay for musicians
  • travel costs
  • accomodation and
  • meals during tour and recordings
