Disclosures to Live Stream ICU Day Concert

In celebration of International Credit Union Day, The Disclosures will be performing a special breakout session from CUNA Campus in Madison, WI and you’re invited to join us!

Thanks to our friends at CUNA Mutual Group and Filene Research Institute, we’re able to live stream our session and make it available to credit unions around the globe. Here are the details:

Filene “Lunch With Ed” Series: The Disclosures Breakout Session

DETAILS:  If you haven’t seen us live before, we deliver credit union history and philosophy lessons in a unique way – we leave the PowerPoint slides at home and instead rely upon our guitars and original credit union songs and stories to engage audiences in these very relevant ICU Day topics.

WHEN: Thursday, Oct 20th from 8:45 – 9:30 CT

We hope you’ll have time to tune in and enjoy some thrift-rock to help your ICU Day celebrations get off to a great start.

Also, have you checked out our new ICU Day song and video yet? We can’t say it enough – we’re grateful to work in an industry with so many amazing individuals who are willing to collaborate and make a project like that even possible.


Gearing up for the WI CU League Annual Convention

We just happened to have camcorders running when Chris dropped by The Wisconsin CU League office…

Waterslides, Credit Unions and Rock n’ Roll – We’re Emceeing the Wisconsin CU League Covention!

The Disclosures are set to host an education session and emcee the Wisconsin Credit Union League’s 77th Annual Convention, May 4-7 at the Kalahari Resort in the Wisconsin Dells.

Our ed session will deal with credit union history and philosophy and feature us playing several original songs from our new album (which is finished and soon to be released!).

This is how happy we are to play music for credit union people:

If you can’t make it to the Wisconsin League Convention, maybe you can catch us at one of our other upcoming appearances?


Preparing to Rock

We’re working hard on our first album and wanted to share some details. First, here’s how we prepare before every recording session:

Training Montage

We’ll have 7-8 original tracks, all showcasing different aspects of credit unions: history, philosophy, heroes of the movement, etc.  But make no mistake — these songs are designed to rock socks off and blow down doors. We want people to enjoy the music first and foremost, and not necessarily realize we are instilling the cooperative spirit into their soul.

Since we do this outside of work and spare time is sporadic, our release date is fluid but we’ll have it ready sometime this fall.

Thanks for listening and stay tuned!

UPDATE: We’re still training – look for the album in early 2011. We want it to be perfect.


A website appears! Next…an album?

Yesterday, we spent some time working our songs for our first album/EP. We’re looking at 7-8 tracks right now and over the next few weeks we’ll be recording and sharing sneak peeks whenever possible. At the same time, we’ll be building up our website and getting some other surprises ready too.

Big thanks to all who have viewed and shared our videos and songs, and special thanks to those who have sent us lyrics and song ideas!

There’s a whole lot of creativity out there in credit union world, and we look forward to rocking on your behalf.
