Who We Are:
We are Midnight Raid, a bunch of like-minded musicians who have found each other and our groove in Oakland, CA! We believe in two things: making good music and making a positive difference in our community. Both of these take a huge amount of collaboration to accomplish. We are hoping you’ll help us with our dual goal of raising enough funds to finish our debut studio album and donate $1000 (or more) to People’s Grocery, a non-profit organization fighting for food security in areas of Oakland lacking reasonable access to healthy food.
What We Need & What You Get:
Our goal: $5000
· $4000 for mixing, mastering, artwork and CD production
· $1000 donation to People’s Grocery
Our sweet perks:
- We have awesome schwag from trucker hats and koozies to custom T-shirts!
- You could also get a performance from the band, with a complimentary bottle of wine!
- Since we’re also donating a portion of the funds to a great charity, you get peace of mind knowing you gave back!
It’s important to us that our music makes an impact. Our album is titled “Oakland Loves You” because we wanted to pay tribute to a city that, despite many challenges, strives for justice and equality. People’s Grocery in West Oakland is an organization that we felt also embodied this spirit, which is why we chose to raise at least $1000 for their community projects that aim to bring healthy food to those with little access to it.
