Juddering Armlessly Across California Since 1982

Crowd Funding Live Album

The Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble is undertaking a series of performances on the West Coast to create a new multidisc live album. We need your help to raise money to record, produce and release the album.

The shows are booked, the band has rehearsed, now we just need to be able to get to the shows and afford to be on the road.


Without your help, only attendees will be able to share the baffling blur of surrealist dreaminess and outsider kitsch that are Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble performances. A variety of premiums are waiting to reward all acts of kindness and generosity.

The entire Bren’t Lewiis Ensemble catalog — more than twenty albums of screeches, blinks, bloops, and mayhem — are up on Bandcamp for purchase or free listening, including our latest album: The Inevitable Typo On Sheila Ostrich's Tombstone 

More new albums coming in 2018!
