Hopeless Jack & the Handsome Devil's first American tour. Help us bring our dirty brand of "Roots & Roll" across the country!
Our band "Hopeless Jack & the Handsome Devil" is releasing our first full length record, and we are presently booking our first national tour! We will be playing 70 dates in 90 days all the way across the United States and back covering over 3000 miles. The road is calling and we just cant shake it. We are leaving behind our jobs, friends and homes to take this giant leap to follow our dream of playing music.
Having just spent most of our finances recording, mastering and pressing our first full length album we need now to go on tour to SUPPORT it. We need you, and your money, to make this happen! We own all of our gear ourselves including the van, our trusted steed 'Bessie', who is in good shape for the shape she's in. Bessie is ready to put her rubber to the road and so are we.
Funding for this project will go to
Gas for the ride - (98% of total money) 4-5 dollars a gallon in most places.
Show promotions - For the towns that we've never been to before it's a major part of getting people out to shows.
Storage - For all those things we just cant part with (Jacks teddy bear and Pete's feety PJ's)
Food - Pete is gluten intolerant and we're headed to the mid-west... he might die if we cant feed him healthy foods.
We are excited for this journey and cant wait to bring our Dirty brand of Roots & Roll to this great nation. Thanks for your help we'll see you on the road. Much love and ROCK & ROLL!!!!
