Katinka Kleijn Steps Down from D97

Due to her numerous time-consuming committments, cellist Katinka Kleijn has stepped down as a full-time member of District 97. We look forward to continuing to collaborate with her in both the recording studio and select live performances as a special guest.

Bill & Jonathan Paiste Cymbal Aritsts

Check out our Bio page for the thoughts of Bill Bruford, John Wetton, Roine Stolt and other incredible individuals on District 97. Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson, Genesis etc.): I love the CD...the sheer skill and gusto with which they tackle it makes you laugh out loud. Great drumming. Jonathan plays and writes like a demon. Congratulations to them. (Bill and Jonathan, both Paiste Cymbals artists, had a chance to jam out together last December in Memphis, TN)

Orchestra Wanted

So..we might need an orchestra to play on some of our next album. Who wants to be that $5000 donor through our CalProg download offer who helps make that happen and gets to play on it? :-) Of course you get PLENTY of cool gifts for donating LESS than $5000 too ($25 gets a credit on the CD, $50 gets that and signed T-shirt or CD etc.) when you download the show. I'll let Leslie take it from here

Live New Album

We have a new Live Album out! District 97-Live at WFPK was recorded in Louisvile, KY by WFPK FM on November 18th, 2011. You can Download it on Bandcamp for a measly $5, but you have the option to contribute whatever you'd like above that. $20 will get you a DVD-R or CD-R of this show, $30 gets you both. Scroll down to check out the complete video of this show.
