HELP the Tiptons Sax Quartet & DRUMS producE our NEXT recording!!!

Choose from a variety of rewards when you contribute to our 14th recording, Wabi-Sabi*  

Wabi-Sabi will go into worldwide distribution in April, 2020 ~ as a digital download, on compact disc ~ and on VINYL. 

But when you support our campaign, you'll get your physical or digital copy way before everyone else!

Help us raise $20,000 by November 21, 2019.

Donate today!

 Thank you for your contribution.

Your support helps pay for:

  • TRAVEL COSTS of bringing the band to Seattle: Tina from Portland, OR; Sue from Eau Claire, WI; Jessica from Brooklyn, NY and Robert from Salzburg, Austria!
  • STUDIO COSTS: We will be recording and mixing at Studio LITHO in Seattle, WA (owned by Stone Gossard of Pearl Jam fame) with our favorite engineer, Floyd Reitsma. As always, we will then professionally master the audio, to make it sound heavenly.
  • MANUFACTURING: Even in today's music streaming and digital download climate, fans still appreciate hard copies of CDs. We'll be making compact discs, and printing a Special Edition short run of VINYL records for the old and new school audio aficionados out there!
  • PROMOTION which includes distribution and communication with radio stations and press media worldwide and working with a publicist.
  • PRODUCING VIDEOS: We have some excellent new songs in the pipeline, and have great directors in mind to direct videos, but they don't work for free...

Why are we asking for money? We feel very fortunate to have such dedicated and enthusiastic fans, friends and family who have watched and listened to us grow over 30 years of existence. It has been an exciting journey ~ but making new, independent and innovative music is still a slippery slope, and sometimes it's cold out there in the snow! People like you make it possible for us to continue creating, communicating and connecting through music.  We thank you for your contributions and support.

*Wabi-Sabi is finding beauty in the imperfections of life
