The Meatty Okra Project
What is The Meatty Okra Project?
What Is Our End Game?
Ultimately, I would like to start a non-profit recording studio in the Buffalo, NY area that is free or as close to free as possible, to anyone that is interested in creating music. This dream however, will never come to fruition without the financial and community support from some of you out there. I am 31 years old and I have realized that I will never be satisfied by just working a normal job forever. I want to make a positive impact on the lives of those in my community, especially those who are talented but maybe do not have the confidence or money required to have their talents realized. I am not trying to be the next great rock star, but if what I do can inspire someone else to become one, then I will have done my job. My real job is to inspire others to create rather than destroy! "The Future of Music is Now!"

Where are we at right now?
Right now, Meatty Okra is a small group of friends who wanted a reason to hang out more often and jamming together was a good way to do it. My name is Greg, and The Meatty Okra Project is really my creation. I want to form more than a band, but rather, a community of musicians. I want there to be no set members, no set genre, no booking shows or pressure to perform at your absolute best. I want a relaxed environment that anyone can enjoy, either by actively participating in the creative process, or by enjoying the musical creations via our live stream events.
Where are we going in the future?
We have just gotten started on this adventure and the future is yet to be determined, but you should know that every penny that you donate will be going towards taking all of the necessary legal steps to acquire a real physical location and legitimize the operation of this novel community building idea.
Short on cash, but still want to show your support?
Thank you all so much for your continued interest and support in this project. Together, I believe we can accomplish great things!
