The Carousel Cabaret 
A Rock Opera
About
Tommy SpaSe & The Alchemists are turning the proverbial page, and it has come time to for us to record the next chapter in our musical evolution!  And what an album it is going to be!  Yes! It's a Rock Opera!  Entitled "The Carousel Cabaret", and it picks up right where "The Alchemist" left off.  That means more metaphysical, supernatural musical thrills and a brand new musical journey! But we need your help and want you to be a part of it.  We have never done a crowd funding campaign before, so it is high time we took this whole thing to the next level, because, quite frankly, the music deserves it!  Over the years, I have watched many artists raise unbelievably large amounts of money to record music that, in my humble opinion, does not offer nearly as much value, in musical quality, lyrical prowess, or scope of vision.  But, having the personality that governs my actions, I have always produced my music with what I had on hand to work with and on my own.  And although the results have been good, we can do better!  We can do better than better...we can do AMAZING!  We want to offer you the most wonderfully epic theatrical rock music possible.  So we are upgrading the entire process to bring you the highest quality Tommy SpaSe & The Alchemists musical experience that we've ever created.  And when I say "we", I mean WE! You and me...YOU and the band !  We are offering you the opportunity to become part of the crew on this mission to bring this unique music to life, and to the world!  And in doing so, you will receive some really spectacular rewards, and one-of-a-kind, historic collector's items.  
The Music
For the longest time, since even before "The Alchemist" was released, as I was planning the next album to follow, I had been envisioning a completely different album.  I had the songs, the title, and the entire concept.  It's a very whimsical thing and I was sure that it would be the next album to release.  But here's to sudden, spontaneous 180 degree forks in the road!  One night, after a particularly challenging 3 month period of radical life changes, I was fooling around with a new song that had recently come to life, and I realized that it was more than a song, but an entire rock opera!  ...and I already had all of the songs of which it would be comprised!  The song was the title track,  "The Carousel Cabaret".   Both the song and the entire album are about, what else, the path of life, and our journey upon it, as both material and the metaphysical beings.  

Speaking of songs on the album, before we go any further...here's that free song from the new album that I told you about! It's a demo version of  a song entitled, "Penny Arcade"

Rewards
We are very happy to offer you many one-of-a-kind items as a reward system for your generous contribution toward the recording, production and promotion of "The Carousel Cabaret" by Tommy SpaSe & The Alchemists!   OK, to start, every CD will be signed and personalized to you.  If you want to take a step further, your name can be forever "immortalized" by being listed in the insert as a benefactor in helping us create this CD.  The T-Shirt: Everyone who pledges on the level of the T-shirt and up, will receive the T-Shirt and be listed on the back and "Immortalized" as a benefactor in helping create the CD. This exclusive T-Shirt is printed ONLY for those who helped in this campaign.  Now onto the "Historical Artifacts" rewards.  You can own a piece of Tommy SpaSe & The Alchemists history by contributing on these various levels.  Each item has a place in the early development and evolution of this musical endeavor. In other words, I didn't just sit down the other day and sketch out a bunch of pictures to offer you in this campaign.  These are removed from my journals and notebooks, the actual pages, that came to be as I was inspired to create them in those moments in time.  Most of them are several years old!  For example,  there are early sketches of Tommy SpaSe, when I was thinking of the overall look, and also sketches of make up designs as well as concepts for videos ect.  The next level of historical artifacts are the physical props that were used in some of our videos, including monsters from "Things That Go Bump in the Night" video (click here to watch) ,  and the megaphone and backdrop in "The End of the World" video. (Click here to watch).  Each item will be signed and personalized to you, by me!  Who knows, one day they may be worth a good bit of  money!  Also, I am offering my first jacket that I created.  These items, the jacket, and props were created by my own hands. There is also a vintage acoustic guitar signed by the whole band.  Please consider contributing and receiving any number of these items.  By doing so you become an integral part of the creation and production of this CD and we are eternally grateful for your support.  We are also planning a release party for the day of release wherein we are going to perform "The Carousel Cabaret" LIVE, in it's entirety,  at a theatre in Los Angeles, CA.  We will be offering you an opportunity to come to Los Angeles and have dinner with the band the night before and then enjoy the show!  We will also be making posters available signed by the whole band.....More on this in a future campaign.

Risks
This is my first crowdfunding campaign and we are doing it on our own, not using a platform like "Kickstarter" or "Go Fund Me". This way ALL of the donations go directly to the project.  And I guarantee that the fulfillment will be carried out with perfection! We answer to universal laws here, and if you have ever bought a CD or merch from us, then you already know that we make sure you are taken care of.  I feel that if you have made the choice to extend your support to me, I feel overwhelmingly obligated to make sure you are happy with that choice and I am sincerely grateful.  
FulFillment 
We will be releasing this album in the first quarter of the new year, 2020.  I am personally shooting for a January release, but to be safe, we are saying "1st quarter" in case of any unforeseen delays.  We will keep you completely in the loop as far as updates and any and all news related to this album, this music, this mission!  Thank you for considering supporting this music and in turn, becoming a part of the process!
