Helps us get to the West Coast and back again!

Hey Guys,

We are heading to the West Coast in May, stopping in a lot of towns along the way and back, to get our music out there. We are playing venues, art spaces, DIY houses, and VFW halls. Your donations will help pay for the gas we will need to make this happen- in total, estimated around $2000.  We are expecting that the tour, in terms of money, will be a losing proposition. But we love what we do and want to bring it to others. If you want to help us make this happen, please consider giving to our Kick Starter. We are very grateful for any help we receive.

Much Love,

Marie-Claire, Karl, Chris and Linda 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There are a lot of challenges for a small band touring in a van across the country. Often we don't know where we will be sleeping after a show, or if we will make enough money to properly take care of ourselves on the road. Van trouble, equipment breaking, and uncomfortable situations are just a few of the things we've experienced. We always get through it and find our way back home.
