This is an official invitation to be a part of an amazing historical bay area phenomenon; Pacific Mambo Orchestra’s and it’s first studio recording!
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/32321230/pmo-first-studio-recording

In 2011 pianist Christian Tumalan and trumpeter Steffen Kuehn formed a 19-member rocket fueled group that is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Despite the current challenging economic situation, we have made it through an entire year of regular weekly gigs paying less than what each musician can actually afford to play for… i.e. gas and precious time. we are defiantly swimming against current, this is the power of love for music, and we have it!

San Francisco Bay Area is local for PMO, and has been a fantastically supportive home for all of us. One year later, we are playing premier clubs and festivals and we’re proud to say that this group is packed with Grammy-recognized musicians! With every performance, PMO feeds the soul, body, and hearts of everyone around, from music lovers, to dancers, to musicians. Every performance is an energetic Blast of love!

GUESS WHAT? You can get on the wave with us right now! No matter where you reside in the world, we are here for you.

By April 23, PMO aims to raise at least $10,000 to record 10 songs, 2 covers and 8 originals.
