The Downbeats Album: We Need Your Help!


This year we’re hoping to extend our outreach beyond the Northeastern community by creating our own album consisting of eight to ten songs from our repertoire. We are more than excited to create a product that shows others who we are as a group: humorous, nostalgic, sometimes emotional, but most importantly, aggressively fun. Every one of our songs is arranged by our own members; an album would be the primary medium to showcase the journey of our hard work of creating and learning our music. We need your help to do it!

We are hoping to raise $4,500 by January of 2018 to make our album a reality. Any donation is more than appreciated; we have fun awards depending on your pledge amount. Be it a signed Downbeats poster, a cover of any song by the Downbeat of your choice, or an original song covered by the Downbeats as a whole, we are ready to thank you for your contribution!

Please feel free to check out our YouTube channel for some of our past performances, as well as our Spotify page where we showcase our previously recorded EP. We hope you enjoy what you hear and choose to contribute to our cause!

With love, The Downbeats
