brothers, sister and of course my dad...

FROM THE ROYAL KRUNK JAZZ ORKESTRA:
Greetings All, We are The Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra. We are getting set to record the follow up, or “prequel” to last years recording “Pyramids” This new recording is entitled “The Sirius Mystery” and takes place many thousands of years before “Pyramids”. It is part 1 of our trilogy that will end in 2021 with the sequel to “Pyramids”. The Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra is wholly original from concept to execution. Our music is the living embodiment of “Ancient Future” We strive to educate, illuminate, and entertain at the highest possible levels. As you know, financing a large ensemble is very expensive. As the leader of our group this responsibility falls to me. Trust me, It’s not easy asking for help, but in today’s music business we are left with very few favorable alternatives. We hope you will contribute to our campaign. Thank You.
