Rachel and Matty are headed to Seattle in October for two weeks of final development on The Holler Sessions, Frank’s new one man love letter to jazz, premiering in January at On The Boards.
We need your help to get them there! We’re raising $4,000 on Indiegogo and every little bit helps! Watch our snappy pitch video and consider throwing us some dough? Airline miles are also welcome and appreciated.
From a cramped and cluttered booth in Kansas City, an explosive DJ named Ray broadcasts his love of jazz music with an eccentric passion and total irreverence.The Holler Sessions includes loud music, profanity, poetry, silence, improvisation and a singular devotion to inspiring a more visceral and emotional experience of jazz – and to the belief that it is America’s truest expression of itself.
Originally conceived of during another TEAM project’s development, The Holler Sessions took on a life of its own when Frank returned to Seattle and continued creating the piece. Green-lit for On The Boards’ 2014-15 season, The Holler Sessions will be the TEAM’s first time working in the Northwest, and the first time we’re co-producing with a member of the company.
Your donation, should you choose to make one, will directly underwrite the transportation of our collaborators from one coast to the other, and ensure that everyone gets a paycheck for their work on the show. And in return for your generosity, we’ll send you goodies including a primer on jazz music you should know (curated by Matty and Ray), as well as sneak peeks of the show.
