Lost And Found Comes Alive is what our listeners have been asking for, ever since we found anyone willing to listen:  An album that captures the experience of seeing Lost And Found live.  Songs, of course, but also talking, joking, storytelling, cultural moments with Lost And Found, and the all-around spontaneity that makes a Lost And Found concert so unique.

As we explain in the video, our usual method of album funding has been disrupted for this project.  No one expected doctors to find a football-sized tumor in Michael's abdomen, but that discovery has forced us to make some changes.

For twenty years, we have played concerts to raise the money to record an album to sell at the concerts to raise the money to make the next project.  As you'll see in the video above, we need to slow down on concerts for a little while, but we still want to make this double live album, as we've dreamed of doing for so long, and as The People have been asking us to do.

With your help, this exciting project will become a reality, and the Lost And Found concert experience will finally be available to share with your friends.  Or, put another way, you can stop having to say, "You really have to see them in concert in order to get it."

A note on Kickstarter's functionality:  You can contribute to the project without receiving any of the so-called "rewards."  (Let's face it, some people wouldn't consider getting our albums to be a "reward.")  Alternatively, you can contribute to the project at a higher dollar amount without having to clutter up your CD rack with CD's you might already have.  Or, you can contribute more than the listed amount for a particular item.  (So, you might want to simply pre-order the live CD if that's all you want, but then contribute $1,000 toward the project, if you really like us as human beings, or what have you.)

Any funds above our goal of $20,000 will be used for promoting this album, which may mean everything from transportation, to magazine ads, to billboards, to a logo on the moon, depending on how "above our goal" we go together, because we really can say with confidence that Lost And Found Comes Alive will be our best album ever!

We hope you'll consider supporting us on this project, and during the months ahead.  We promise to do our best to keep making music that is relevant, meaningful, and fun!
