What's the plan?

Making a first album!

We're doing a tour between the 10th & 19th of januari (see concertlist bellow). As a conclusion of this period we want to capture our music and share it with the world, which wil become the debut album of mòs.

Offcourse we want to go for the highest quality there is. But this has a price. A price we, as young professional musicians, can't afford by ourselves. To make our dream come true we need a budget of €3.500.

To make this possible we made this crowdfunding page and we need your support to make it happen!

Not for Nothing! Offcourse we offer some cool things in return.

According to your support you can get a copy of our coming album, which will be available around december 2018/januari 2019. They will then be send to you.

We also go the support of the organisations of the Gent Jazz festival, Jazz Middelheim & JazzLab Series. So we also offer some tickets & vouchers for their concerts.

You can check their program here:

We're also collaborating with illustrator Cecilia Valagussa & graphic designer Leon De Backer who allready made an animationclip, posters & postcards in the style of the artwork of the album. The poster and postcards are for sale as well.

List of Rewards can be found from the top right of this page:

​(all tickets and vouchers can be used for the 2017-2018 culture season/2018 edition)

BUT, If we don't make the goal of €3.500, we get nothing! Which means we won't be able to make oure dream come true. So support, share and tell everybody about this if you believe in this project. Let's do this!
