Welcome to our Patreon page! We are Resolution 88 - an uncompromising jazz funk band inspired by the likes of Herbie Hancock & the Headhunters and Kaidi Tatham.
The band was set up by Tom O'Grady (keys / MD), who was inspired by his friend and mentor Don Blackman to quit his day job as a Mathematics teacher and follow his dream to create music that he would be proud of and that represented his sound as a musician.

How is the band uncompromising?
1) Tom writes whenever inspiration strikes and the individual members of the band put their musical stamp on the songs; we concentrate on doing exactly what we want to do and that sincerity has helped us gain some fiercely loyal fans.
2) We chose the right person for the job at every stage of the process in order to do the music justice - Dan 'JD73' Goldman mixing, Bob Power (Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, The Roots etc) mastering.
3) In this day and age of keyboard emulations, Tom stubbornly lugs a suitcase Rhodes to every gig (he is very unpopular with the band at upstairs / cellar bar gigs!) - we are paying our dues and we take every care to make sure our music sounds authentic.

The band was initially funded by Tom's savings but we spend a lot of money doing things the right way and paying the right people to do the right job. We don't go in for gimmicks but we would hugely appreciate regular support from patrons if you love our music and want to enable us to produce more! Any income raised from 'Patreon' would go towards:
1) Studio time, mixing and mastering fees (to maintain our working relationship with Dan Goldman and Bob Power).
2) Vinyl pressing.
3) Booking fees for putting on more ambitious, headlining gigs.
