Hi everyone! Dave Weckl here….

I want to thank everyone who has pledged toward my new recording project with Jay Oliver! We’re writing some KILLING new music and filming everything for a DVD!

For those of you who have not pledged yet – NOW is the best time to get on board! Here’s why…

Throughout the writing and recording process, we’re posting FREE lessons and behind-the-scenes studio videos. We’re even filming some fun personal videos – including Dave flying through the hillside (and around a racetrack) in his Corvette!

Pre-ordering the project through Pledge Music is the ONLY way to get these cool extras, in addition to immediate delivery of the new album when it’s released.

Please take a moment to review what’s available on the right side of this page. For as little as $15, you can get on board.

Just click “pledge” when you roll over one of the categories. After you checkout and pay (there is an option to GIFT your pledge to someone else), scroll to the bottom of this page to view all of our updates with all the videos. We’ll e-mail you when a new video is posted! Lots of new ones on the way!

About The Project

Many of you will remember Jay Oliver – a musical genius who worked on my early solo albums (“Master Plan,” “Heads Up,” and “Hard Wired”), plus two Dave Weckl Band albums (“Rhythm of the Soul” and “Synergy”). Twelve years after our last collaboration, Jay and I are at it again with renewed energy and enthusiasm!

We’re writing some slammin’ new tunes – some of which feature great guest musicians! And, one tune will feature a “guest drummer” playing WITH ME!

More Than Just a New Album…And It’s Secure.

We’re going to offer mixes without drums, guitar, bass, or keys, so that YOU can play along. We’ll include charts, MIDI files (for keyboard players), and even videos of Dave playing the tunes (drum version)!

And…we’re going to capture the entire project in photos and video. You’ll be able follow our progress as the project comes together. When everything is complete, we’ll offer a behind-the-scenes DVD with extended footage, plus tips and tricks on how we wrote, recorded, and mixed this music!

Pledge Music will work directly with us to ensure you receive everything that comes with your pledge. You can’t lose….

Click “pledge” on a package (to the right) to get on board and get all of the cool extras!

Thanks so much for your support of this great music project!
