Just a few days left on the project, pledge towards our goal. We're getting close, but we get $0 unless we hit $6,000 by July 8th!

Hello,

We are Bravo, Max! and we are growing out of our aging sport utility vehicle's.

So far in 2011: We have beento Taos, Denver, Houston, San Antonio, Hot Springs, Austin, and one especially leg-cramping ride from Dallas to Northern California and back home. Making the total miles, just over 10,000 in 4 months.

Imagine a family of 8 traveling in a covered wagon, constantly feeding their horses, and covering the distance from L.A. to New York... 4 times. To get a feel for our band, check out the trailer, "Kiss", for the album we are in the midst of promoting, Dog's Light

In short, if you enjoy our music and want to help, this is when you step in. The goal of the project is to make new friends who'll tell their friends about us. We like people, and want to meet more of them. We have been researching this set up for months and months, and are planning our most extensive tour to date, this coming JULY. One way or another you will see us riding into town soon, if we have to carry our horses around the country, we're coming to your city. Be a part of our smelly ride around America.

And remember, by backing us on any level you will receive updates on this project and more.

Talk to you soon,

Johnny, Ellie, Ben, JJ, and Bob
