2016 Performance Calendar Updated

Looks like we are in for a busy year!

2016 performance dates are up here: https://thebattleaxeband.com/where-well-be-next/

We’ll kick things off with our CD Release Party in Greenville, SC on March 6. It’s a drop-in with a jam afterwards, so join us for a tune or the whole time. It’s free, and there will be food, music of course, and some limited band swag like The BattleAxe Band mugs.

Also,  a few more events are in the works and we’ll get them on the calendar as soon as they are finalized.

If you are feeling adventurous this year (like we are) and want to try out contra dancing (it is SO much fun!) or going to a farmer’s market you’ve never been to or maybe a new event venue, come with us (we double-dog dare you)! See you soon!

First album released!

CD release

Our album “…because we ARE” is HERE! The CDs came in right before Christmas and we had a mailing party at Nancy’s house to get them addressed and out to all of our Kickstarter supporters. We are very pleased with how everything turned out. The album is available for purchase in both CD and digital download form at our webstore here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/thebattleaxeband2 . We will be having a CD release party around March 2016. More details to follow. Thanks for supporting us!

Happy Thanksgiving!

BAB at October studio-3858

The Battleaxe Band at Tim’s Studio

The Battleaxe Band has been busy working on our debut album this fall. In October we made our first trip up to Pisgah Forest to lay down the bulk of our tracks. On Sunday we went back up to the studio and re-recorded 4 tracks to get them just right. Tim has already sent us the tracks to preview it sounds good!

After Tim finishes the mixing, he’ll send it on for mastering, then it will go to the CD manufacturer. We are still hoping to get the CDs out in time for Christmas.

We are planning to have a CD release party sometime in the early new year, probably in February after all the holiday rush is over. We’ll let you know so you have time to put it on your calendars.

We are so thankful to have the chance to make this album and we owe it all to our fans – Thank you!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Album Title Unveiled!

Battle Axe

The album title will be “…because we ARE” .

Also, our Kickstarter is almost over! Thank you for all your help! We still need about $1000 to reach our goal, so if you know some people who would enjoy our music, please spread the word. Here is the link: (Click the K on video)

Meanwhile we are polishing up our favorite songs and getting ready to go into the studio on the 17th. We are so excited!

Kickstarter Update

Hi friends! We’re almost halfway through our campaign to raise money to make our first CD. So far we’ve raised almost $1300 of the needed $5000.  We’ve had a good response and really appreciate all the donations we’ve received already. We have a long way to go yet in a short time. We have until October 3rd to reach our funding goal to make this project happen. If you have been listening to the BattleAxes for awhile or if you just stumbled across us, I hope you’ll check out our Kickstarter and see if there is a reward you would like (we are offering everything from downloads and pre-ordering the CD to massages and concerts and more!) or making a donation to keep this old-timey music alive. Visit our Kickstarter at : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/battleaxeband/the-battleaxe-band-debut-album

Let’s Kick it with Kickstarter!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2045035210/the-battleaxe-band-debut-album

It’s here! It’s time! We’re finally doing it!

What you ask? We are making our debut CD! In order to do this we need to raise funds to pay for the many costs associated with such an endeavor, such as recording studio time and CD packaging. The hardest part? We have to raise the entire goal of $5000 in order to get a single penny. The coolest part? We have lots of unique “rewards” available for different levels of donations, from copies of our upcoming CD to massages and concerts!  Go visit today and see the great video Brooke put together. Thanks for your support!
