Launch of our Go Fund Me Campaign!

 

We have just launched a GoFundMe campaign to help us raise money for a new bus! We no longer have Goldie to travel around in and we have found a new bus – the problem is, our March tour is coming up quick and we can’t afford to pay for the conversion. That’s where you come in!

Your generous contributions will go towards:
-Paying off the bus.
-Equipping the bus with safety features, including seat belts.
-Building sleeping spaces for touring band members and family
-Outfitting RV components like a fridge, sink and stove to complete the official RV conversion requirements.
-Mechanical inspection and any required repairs or upgrades.

If you enjoy our music and want to help us keep bringing it to you, please donate! Any help, large or small, would be hugely appreciated!

Thank you!
