Hello! We are Steam Powered Giraffe, a theatrical act/band that dresses up and pretends to be humorous malfunctioning singing robots on stage. Us being robots might be pretend, but our singing and music is not! Our music style touches on different genres from folk, rock,and pop, but is always infused with catchy melodies and three and four part harmonies!

This Patreon is setup so fans can support the act so we can continue to make new albums, music videos, livestreams, and concerts.

Like most bands and entertainment acts these days we don't rely on a record label or producers and put the power of sustaining ourselves in the hands of the fans who want to see our act continue. We do most things in-house and that saves a lot of cost for us, but there are still costs to keeping our business going and churning out new content.

For ten years now the act has made the majority of it's income through merchandise sales and we've funded our new albums and projects through pre-orders. That, in conjunction with other sources of income has kept us going so far. However with Patreon we are hoping to take the pressure of getting enough pre-sales off of us and be able to support these endeavors and our artists financially year-to-year.

We think adopting a Patreon-model into the fold of our act will help us focus on creating the content our fans want, rather than us focusing on trying to make enough money through merchandise sales to continue putting out content. Most of our dedicated fans already have all our merchandise, and pre-sales tend to be limiting in most cases. It's a dilemma we and many other smaller acts have faced, as merchandise sales and performance income only go so far.

If you've been watching the act for a number of years you might notice that it takes us awhile to pump out new content. While this is somewhat normal when doing anything creative, a lot of the band's pace is set from the fact that our artists have to make a living, so we all do side-work and have other jobs to make ends meet. Steam Powered Giraffe is a labor of love for everyone involved, and all of our artist dedicate a lot of unpaid time just to continue the act. Regardless of Patreon, the act will continue, but our goal is to make Steam Powered Giraffe a more sustainable entity and support the artists who devote so much time to it, which in turn will allow them to devote even MORE time to the act.

Your support will not only help us create new albums, music videos, and more, but it will also support the talented folks who do work for us; our live show dancers, merchandise, booking, and social media folks Chelsea and Camille Penyak, our live sound technician and technical director Steve Negrete, our live show backing musician and album music composer Michael Philip Reed, and of course the robot performers themselves Bryan Barbarin (Zer0), Isabella Bennett (Rabbit), and David Michael Bennett (The Spine).

We encourage anyone interested in finding out more about the band, what we are all about, the people involved with it, and the fun fiction & lore behind the band's robots to visit our official website at: www.steampoweredgiraffe.com.

Also check out our YouTube channel where you'll find tons of our official music videos, songs, audio podcast episodes, and other fun video related shenanigans: www.youtube.com/spgiraffe

Note about content:
Most of the exclusive content on this Patreon is pretty much the same content that can be found on the band's old "Engineer-eteer Program" subscription website that we started in 2012 (except for a few Patreon exclusive perks/content for higher tiers). The Engineer-eteer website is still available as an alternative for fans (and we are keeping it running for the foreseeable future), but since times are a-changing we wanted to start a Patreon. Most behind-the-scenes content is cross-posted to that website and this Patreon where it makes sense :)
