Celebrated Santa Fe musicians Jim Goulden (drums,guitar ,african drums, Gluey Brothers, Hidden Whale) and Alan Kapulski ( Sousaphone,Drums Upright Bass,Guitar,MNEMIO,Son Del Pantano ,Mayamundi Brass Band, Hora Zero Tango, Swing Soliel) have a combined 70 years of quality musicianship across the United States and the globe.We are part of the Santa Fe street level Balkan/New Orleans style brass band “Partizani Brass Band” which has been invited to participate in the Austin Tx “HONK” festival of community street band festival for 3 days the weekend of April 3rd.
The bands don’t get paid and that is a challenge for working musicians like Jim and Alan. We very much need to be there to provide drum and bass but cannot come home broke after gas ,food and lodging expenses.The HONK festival is a great event promoting the idea of great brass and circus music in the streets accessible to the public and we are proud to be a part of it.
It would be sad if Alan was not there laying down sousaphone grooves and Jim “holding sway” on tenor snare drum /doubling on Bass drum. Please help us get there…
.Any funds raised in excess of our target, will go towards 4 other members who might need some help: a trumpet player,another drummer and 2 dancers.
