Mornin' Old Sport is venturing on their first National tour across the U.S. this summer! 

   With the help of Punks & Criminals Booking, their two-month summer run will take them around the United States from Portland to Chicago, Boston to Philly, even New Orleans to California while hitting many stapled cities along the way. They have teamed up with Terrorbird Media LLC, an amazing PR agency, to help them launch their record release in July 2012 along side their summer tour. 

   Although Mornin' Old Sport is rich in music and great friends, their bank account is at an all time low. With the help of their most generous and loving supporters, they just might be able to fund the biggest tour of their lives. 

Why does Mornin' Old Sport need your help?

Mornin' Old Sport is hitting 26 states and playing 45 shows within 60 days; funding for gas, food, housing and merchandise (t-shirts, stickers and posters) for the tour is just the beginning. Your donations will also help support the artists that have been helping Mornin' Old Sport get off the ground for the past year. With every dollar you pledge, Mornin' Old Sport will be able to say "thank you" to their behind-the-scenes crew and will finally be able to have the national tour that their team has been so eager to help launch. Mornin' Old Sport's new players, Mike Schlenoff (guitar), Jack Kodros (bass) and the wonderful artists Lena Gustafson and Peter Calderwood (who designed the album cover, t-shirts and record plate) are the very back bone of this upcoming operation. The money that you pledge via Kickstarter will not only help Mornin' Old Sport get across the country this summer, but it will help pay these five wonderful and amazing people who have helped Mornin' Old Sport divide and conquer. 

   This is the album art work by Lena Gustafson and Pete Calderwood. They have truly done an amazing job with their collaborations for Mornin' Old Sport and we feel they deserve a little something in return.
