Short Summary

 

Based out of Austin, Texas, Danger*Cakes is an all-female band that serves a heaping helping of old school Rock and Roll with a side of punk-infused soul. Our songs leave you feeling full with a taste that lingers on long after. Bound by our love of creating and playing music, the ladies of Danger*Cakes have set our sights on making the music industry a more habitable place for women. We feel that everyone, regardless of age, sex, race, shape, size and creed should share in the joys music has to offer and the gifts it can bestow.  It may be a man's world, especially in the music industry, but we're here to help level the playing field!

 

We don't fit the common “Look” of most women in music. Maybe that's because the media would have you believe that one size fits all? But we know the truth. Real women don't fit into that concept. And we are a band of real women; each extremely different in mind and body. Instead of wasting our time chasing some unattainable idea of what beauty means to someone else, we focus on bringing out the good in ourselves. We have found our inner strength through music and that definitely reflects our beauty outward through our appearances. We adapted our signature “vintage and retro-inspired” style because it compliments each of our own unique tastes and helps to convey a sense of body positivity and size acceptance. We're not some novelty act in poodle skirts. We may dress to impress, but our hearts beat pure Rock 'N' Roll. We aim to inspire people, especially women, to find that strength in music; to pick up an instrument, whether you know how to play it or not, and try to find your inner song.

 

This Summer, we are hitting the road, spreading the word of Danger*Cakes! We have the grit, determination and drive but we need your help. We have worked hard, scrimped and saved and planned, but we still need a bit more. Your contribution will help us break the mold and let the music industry know, Rocking has no restrictions!

 

What We Need & What You Get

We need $40,000.00 to help cover the expenses of our tour, finish our album and create two music videos. That's a lot of bang for your buck! We'll be touring the Southwest and West Coast for the entire month of August. We may look glamorous, but Danger*Cakes are no strangers to roughing it. We want to make the most of what we have; waste not, want not. So camping is always an option, but one cannot live on S’mores alone. Of the $40,000.00, our cost for the music videos will be $7,000 each. The remaining $36,000 will be used to feed, house and transport us on our “Ladies of Hades” Tour and most importantly, to finish our album!

 

So how can we express our gratitude for your generous donations? We have a slew of sweet perks to say thanks! There are digital downloads of your favorite Danger*Cakes' songs, Danger*Cakes panties and boxers, canvas Danger*Cakes totes, and Danger*Cakes T-shirts emblazoned with our “Dessert First Girl”! You could be thanked on the liner notes of our new album or even get your hands on a signed copy of Danger*Cakes' hand-written lyrics! We also have up for grabs a walk on role in one of our music videos (airfare NOT included but hey we have cake!) and a chance to join us on stage at one of our performances to sing our hit song, "My Boyfriend is a Zombie!" (airfare not included but please see above to our standing cake offer). We do have a “Local Perk” exclusively for the Austin-area! Danger*Cakes will show up at your home or business with some of our deliciously decadent cakes and give you your own private performance! Finally we have a “Pay it Forward” incentive to thank you for sharing the love. If you share our page with others and two people donate $25.00 or more and credit you by entering your name in the notes, YOU will receive an extra special surprise perk! “What's the surprise?”, you ask. Well, if we told you it wouldn't be a surprise. Now what happens if we don’t achieve the full amount? Well, it would be heartbreaking not to hit our goal, but we Danger*Cakes are tough cookies and will definitely continue to forge on. Is this a great challenge? Of course! But Danger*Cakes is ready and rarin' to kick some serious Brass!

The Impact

Danger*Cakes was formed to create a warm and nurturing environment for women to learn and grow as musicians, and of course, to Rock! People don't ask a group of guys, “Why did you decide to start an all-male band?” So why ask a group of woman the same question? Because women are not the majority in music. Even having a female-fronted band seems to be an anomaly these days. So why are there so few women in the music industry? Well, your average woman will wear many occupational hats in her lifetime. Her time is usually spread thin juggling education, employment, tending to a relationship and/or raising children. All that multitasking doesn't exactly leave a lot of time for Rocking. So why choose to form an all-female band when the odds are against us? To prove that we can! To show that women regardless of their shape, size, race, age or creed CAN do this! And if enough of us stand up to the challenge, we can change the face of the music industry!

 

Please help us to share this message AND this campaign.

    Songbirds & Smarts!

    One half hour vocal music lesson with Jamie Bahr, Lead Singer and Upright Bassist of Danger*Cakes & a 10 minute professional consult. Jamie has an impressive musical resume. When she’s not rocking, she works for the non-profit organization, Kids In a New Groove, teaching music to children in foster care or who have been recently adopted. Not only can this doll sing, she can teach! She's always expressive and open to having a warm creative space with her musicians. Definitely worth it.
