    From Los Angeles to Berlin, audiences have been captivated by the music
of Das Vibenbass. Sustaining a spot in the top five of Seattle's KEXP 90.3
jazz charts for over 5 months, the quartet was then nominated for Best
Jazz/Experimental act in the Seattle Weekly poll, "Best of 2006."  Tours of
the United States, Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic have cultivated a
devoted fan base spanning many ages, many countries, and many tastes.
    A CD release party will take place at Neumo's at 925 E. Pike St.,
Seattle, Washington, 98112 on Friday, June 29th, at 9pm. Find out more at
    An unprecedented fifty percent of all profits from this recording are
being donated to The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation, a non-profit organization
dedicated to promoting music through donation of musical instruments to young
    Fodakis was produced by Das Vibenbass and Loren Weisman. It is a Freedom
Solutions Recording Plan (FSRP) album, meaning it was created through a
process that saves the artist money by taking budgeting and planning to the
next step. It also keeps the artist in control of their music.  Lastly, the
plan proposes giving a percentage of profits to a charity the artist believes
in.  Fodakis is being released with two other FSRP recordings from Seattle:
R&B artist Jeremiah, and Houston rock group Stretching Madness. More
