HERE'S WHAT WE'RE UP TO!

We're extremely excited to be in the late stages of producing our DEBUT full length album.. but we need your help to get us across the finish line...

We're raising funds to cover:

  - Creation of beautiful original album artwork by the fantastic Stephen Templer
  - Mastering of the final audio
  - Duplication of the album in CD format
  - Publishing and promotional costs

Since the inception of T-Bone in late 2015, we've been drawn together by a shared love of good food, fine wine and great acoustic Americana music. We know that we've culitvated something really special - and it's time to share it with the world!

 

 

ABOUT THE ALBUM

We went into the studio - The Surgery in Newtown, Wellington - late last September and captured a really energetic and upbeat performance. The tunes are played with that T-Bone spirit which we know will make you smile! It sounds and feels just like us jamming at Richie's on a Monday night - bellissimo!

Eight out of the eleven songs are original and include songs about food, jamming, love found and lost - all peppered with that T-Bone flavour - acoustic twangs, searing fiddles and just a hint of char-grill.

The tunes present a veritible mixing bowl of stringed instruments: Double bass, banjo, mandolin, fiddle

PRE-ORDER THE ALBUM

We know you could wait it out and listen on your streaming platform of choice once it's released but the thing is... without your generous support, we won't be able to get our music out to you. There's something old school and timeless about this album and by you pledging at any of the levels and pre-ordering the album, you're helping us to finish our project and get it out to the world!

We are really excited to share this album with you, we can't wait for you to hear it! You'll get a copy sent out to you, either a great digital version or a CD to play at your leisure before it gets released to the general public and you'll be able to practice your karaoke before we go on our North Island tour in late June/July!

Wow! We are so stoked to be over half-way there already, thank you all you wonderful people.

We're so appreciative of your pre-orders and help spreading the good word about this album... and we've reached the final countdown! 10 days to go! Let's build the hype, spread the word, launch this thing into outer space!

Pledgers! Friends! Whanau! 

We're so stoked to have your support, thank you! We've gone and done it again... Another sneak preview of the album tunes, this time two 5ths of the band performing an abridged version of our instant classic, T-Bone Rag.

Cause every band should have a theme song! This song really captures the spirit of our enterprise, what brought us together - fun! 

Truly, we are so appreciative of your support with this album. We're super excited about it and can't wait to share this music with you all 😁. 

Far North - Performance by Dusty & Gerry

21/04/2022 at 4:39 PM

Dear Friends, whānau and loyal supporters!

Thank you so very much for your support of the PledgeMe campaign so far! We're nearlly half way there and are so appreciative of your help to get this along!

We have come up with a name for the album (drum roll) which is Good 'n Greasy

Here's a wee performance from Dusty in Gerry when they got together for a rehearsal in Kerikeri last week. It's a song that will be on the new album called Far North and was inspired by the two boys moving up to Te Tai Tokerau recently. We hope you enjoy it!

Thanks again and any help you can give by spreading the word will be much appreciated!

 

Arohanui,

 

Gerry, Dusty, Richard, Aaron and Mike

Wow! 20% there already! You're amazing! (plus a live vid premier)

14/04/2022 at 10:50 AM

We are so grateful for your help! 20% there!!

It's so incredible to have gotten this far with your help, and to say thank you right now we're releasing this fabulous live video - we shot this the last time we were all together, before Gerry's move up to Kerikeri and Dusty to Whangarei. It's a fun energetic take on this tune, and we think you'll love it!

We're on track to get where we need to with this campagin, and all of your help to pledge and share to your networks is going to be so crucial to us getting there. So, here's to you, kind people!
