Rumjig AlbumBy: Rumjig Liverpool
Hi we are Rumjig.
We are an independent band who want to make an album that we can all share with you personally, without a record label taking an unfair cut. What we are after is a self created and lovingly crafted masterpiece but we cannot do it without your help.
Pleasefund.us is a great site that will allow the public, fans and friends to invest in our music, help promote us and get some amazing new music out there.
Even just a small pledge from you means a future investment in some fantastic, independently created, grassroots music. If you then share this video - talking to someone about it, a share on your social networking site, emailing a friend the link, etc - you can help us spread the Rumjig message far and wide. Any support we can get to help us on our way is hugely appreciated.
We believe in the power of people creating something larger together. Recording, producing, mixing, mastering and pressing an album is an expensive and time consuming affair. A small contribution from each of you will help us to do this, and in return you'll receive your very own limited edition CD of the album, plus other goodies, and the satisfaction of keeping alive homegrown music.
Your involvement makes this album as much yours as it is ours. When you listen to it you can say “I helped make that happen”.
Over the years we have built up a brilliant network of locally talented friends/musicians/sound engineers etc who we'll use to ensure we will get the best quality engineering, producing and mixing that your money can buy. This keeps the process localised and contributes to a thriving independent music community.
Reasons to invest?!
* You’ll get our first Album and many other treats delivered to your door.
* You’ll have taken part in a community funded project producing an independent album.
* You will have helped create the first step to launching the rest of our musical career.
* You’ll be apart of helping our music get out there to hopefully make endless amounts of people happy and dance to ignite their lust for life.
Rum on and Jig out! Caammmaaaaan people, we can do this!!!!!!!!..oi

Hey all. Just a quick update to let you know where we are up to.
January has been a very busy month for us. Although on the surface we seem very quiet, we are actually working our little socks of at Rumjig HQ and in our studio/practice space.
We are writing, recording and finalising all the pre-production. This is so when we come to record in the studio we will be ready, well as ready as you can be. You all know the saying “fail to prepare, prepare to fail” well we’re preparing.
We are booked into the studio on the 15th of February and we will be in for a solid 10 days recording.
In the mean time we are building up our following so that when we release the Album we can cast out to a wider audience.
You can still assist us with this part by sharing our videos and talking to people about us. Particularly inviting people to ‘like’ our Facebook page is really appreciated.
We are also taking bookings for this summer and the festival season. It’s going to be another amazing year for us by the looks of things.
Thank you for you support, we are so happy to be doing this at last.
Our next gig is the 8th of March at Liverpool’s Threshold festival. http://www.facebook.com/events/311527502297463/?ref=ts&fref=ts

Hey all. It’s official, we have hit the target with a whooping great £5215.50. All done and on to stage 2 now..
We hope you all have a super boss Christmas.
We couldn’t have hoped for a better Christmas present so thanks to everyone that has supported us on our Rumjig Album adventure.
We are very lucky people indeed to know so many lovely and supportive people.
Much merry love and christmas hugs to one and all.

We’re now a whopping great 2/3 of the way through the Album project.
We did say jokingly, that if we hit £3000 by 2/12/12 we would eat a massive can of Spam.
This will then re-address the balance of us spamming everyone with our funding link.
We said we would do it so here it is. Rumjig eating Spam.
Thanks for all your pledges, without them we would never have been able to do this.

ps . Dont try this at home.

So we’re 1/3rd of a way through our Album Fundraiser, time sure does fly when you’re having fund!
We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone that has already pledged so far, and also to those that have spread the word, we are overwhelmed and touched by the generosity shown in supporting us. Please keep pledging and sharing, we can do it!!
Here’s a track we’ve just recorded as a teaser of what to expect from us in the future. It’s currently a work in progress, but just imagine how good it could sound eh?
Thanks again, keep it Rum. x
