NOW IS ALL YOU HAVE- Send NIAYH on tour! We need your help to repair our bus "Wally" in order to complete our upcoming national tour!
What we want to do:
We are currently booking a 6 week national tour. We leave at the end of April and will make our way across the country to New York and back. We have always dreamed of completing a national tour, sharing our music and spreading our philosophy of NOW IS ALL YOU HAVE, but we need help!
Our project is to put NIAYH on tour. In order to do this, we need to fix our tour bus, “Wally” and finish recording a limited edition demo C.D.
What the money is for:
We travel in a converted school bus, that has a kitchen area, living room space, and 8 bunks for our band and crew members. We need to raise $5,000 to repair damages on the bus caused by previous tours, like the electrical system (or lack there of at this point!), the engine , mirrors, running lights, head and tail lights, gas gauge, and we also have a serious oil leak. We will also need to cover initial gas and insurance expenses. We need to make “Wally” as safe and reliable as possible for a tour across the country. From the funds we raise on Kickstarter, we would also like to finish recording and printing a limited edition E.P. so that we can share our music throughout the country when we embark on this tour.
Break down of tour costs:
Insurance - $ 1,000 (school bus for 2 months - April to May)
Gas - $ 7,472.52 (10,098 miles round trip @ 5 miles per gallon)
Bus repairs - $ 5,000 (electrical, engine and structural repairs)
Total costs - $ 13, 472.52
We are asking for help to FIX our bus! and get us on tour! "Wally" is the center piece for our mantra and philosophy. Imagine how many people will see NOW IS ALL YOU HAVE, while we travel our long distance of 10,000 miles! We are committed to spreading the message and devoted to changing the world!
We don’t have much time until we leave and we can use all the help we can get. That’s where Kickstarter comes in. We hope that Kickstarter can help us raise funds and awareness about our upcoming 6 week national tour. We will also be filming a documentary of our experience as we spread the word across the United States. We hope to capture and share this tour and our history as a band and as a movement.
