Jukebox the Ghost
March 5, 2016
Indie band Jukebox the Ghost are independent once again after cutting ties with their label, Cherrytree Records. With independence comes short funds and no financial backing, unless you have thousands of dedicated fans across the United States and beyond. The band successfully funded their first ever live album, using crowd funding website Kick Starter. With 855 backers Jukebox the Ghost raised $36,882, well over the amount needed to produce the project. Pittsburgh had 12 backers alone and was one of the highest backing cities for the campaign.
The Washington D.C. trio of Ben Thornewill, Tommy Siegel and Jesse Kristin have 10 years of experience, 1,000 concerts and 4 albums to their credit. Their live performances are over the top high energy endeavors, filling the stage effortlessly with their big personalities.
The live album will be taken from some of their best work on their current tour. Luckily for Pittsburgh they’ll be making a stop at Mr. Smalls March 5 for an all ages show.
