The Shoot Dangs! represent Alaskan music! - BIG tour! -
We need YOUR help funding a tour & album to show the world our unique sound & style of music... blueCrass!!!
Everyone has a dream... and this happens to be ours! All Alaskans and outsiders! We need YOUR help! You are the only way we can bring our creativity, energy, and sound to the outside world!
The Shoot Dangs! want to expose a style of music and energy that is unique to itself... "blueCrass!" We are currently recording our new album, which will be available at the end of May, 2015. With the new album in hand, the band is embarking on an 8,000 mile tour, from Anchorage, Alaska to the Black Rock City of Burning Man in Nevada and back to Alaska again, touring the west coast along the way!
Along the 8,000 mile journey, we will be playing shows in dozens of towns and spreading our music and energy amongst the people. What makes this tour even more unique is that we are taking (on the way south) Alaska's "Inside Passage" by ferry and playing shows in many small Alaskan towns that rarely experience touring bands (such as Skagway, Haines, Juneau, & Ketchikan).
We will drive from Anchorage to Haines, and take the ferry down to Bellingham, Washington in mid-August, stopping at the aforementioned Inside Passage towns. Then we will play shows in towns along the west coast (Seattle, Portland, Ashland, etc) until we head east to reach Burning Man, which will be the highlight of our tour.
After Burning Man, we will play several decompression shows as we tour our way back up through Canada on the Alaska Highway, and back to Anchorage.
We NEED NEED NEED Y O U R help everyone! We have already booked the majority of the tour south (Haines, Skagway, Juneau, Ashland, Bellingham, and Burning Man as of Monday, April 13th), and we are all pinching pennies, but with your help the tour will be successful. The funds you donate will help pay our ferry cost to board the Alaska Marine Highway (4 band members and our Toyota motorhome) and get us to Bellingham, as well as cover some fuel on the return to Alaska while driving the Alaska highway and help us cover a portion of our recording costs on our new album.
There are rewards for those that donate!!!! Check them out and donate whatever or as much as you can. Thanks SO MUCH and help us get out our unique Alaskan sound, style and energy to the world!!! THE SHOOT DANGS!@*(&!!!

Risks and challenges
Once we raise the necessary funding, there will be no challenge except maintaining our momentum and energy throughout the tour! Thanks everyone!
I am personally investing a great deal of my own finances in putting a new engine in my Toyota motorhome for this tour, so that we will be safe and not have vehicle issues on the long road ahead. The band has also invested in paying upfront for a portion of the recording costs already. The band members are investing and paying for their own tickets to Burning Man, as well as their own living expenses along the way. Your donations are simply to keep us moving on the road, the sea, and on the stage and supplement the costs for our new album, which can be in your hands with the appropriate donation!
