      Still nothing received. Worth it to help out, but I really was looking forward to the live recording and such. Ah well.

      Arleigh dear, you are worth the wait!

      I did get the CD a long time ago. I got the postcard a couple of weeks ago. Maybe the live set will be sent too...some day. One can hope.

    4. Creator Jay Forbes on January 15, 2013

      Still nothing here. I did get to see SSDB at the Beacon with Gov't Mule. Great show!

      I'd sure like to get my vinyl; poster and live recording, though.

    5. Creator Greg Jennings on January 10, 2013

      Issue resolved. Thank you

    6. Creator Greg Jennings on January 3, 2013

      Absolutely nothing happened on my end, other than being directly lied to.

    7. Creator David Spatt on December 28, 2012

      If it hasn't happened yet, it looks like the live recording is not going to happen at all. Very sad and disappointing.

    8. Creator Greg Jennings on October 28, 2012

      Responded to survey on time, address sent (twice) & still... nothing.

    9. Creator David Spatt on October 27, 2012

      I did give my address and did get the CD, which was very good BTW, but still waiting for the live set recording. That's when the birds are best. Maybe by X-mas? Please.

    10. Creator Jay Forbes on September 26, 2012

      Ok, so maybe this is my fault. As soon as I posted my comment, I saw a link at the top of the page to submit the 'rewards' survey, including my address. So, there's still hope!

      Looking forward to it!

    11. Creator Jay Forbes on September 26, 2012

      Same here. I was happy to contribute and help the cause, but I really was looking forward to my autographed vinyl; autographed poster, and a FULL MIX from the road.

    12. Creator Greg Jennings on September 25, 2012

      No rewards received. Very disappointed. Still love the music, but this sucks.

    13. Creator Greg Jennings on August 21, 2012

      Any update on shipment of rewards?

    14. Creator Matthew Wilson on July 6, 2012

      Hey Gang, received my CD yesterday....listened twice all twelve so far!!! Nice! You keep enjoying your ride, its a pleasure helping to spread your vibe and energy!!! I have a small gift for you all also when I see you Thursday in Rochester !!! Karma rocks !

    15. Creator David Spatt on July 5, 2012

      Just got my copy of "Pound of Dirt". Excellent. Looking forward even more to the live set recording. Thanks Birds.

    16. Creator Mike Chapell (deleted) on June 22, 2012

      Siked for the live recording... When are they going out?

    17. Creator Lee on May 30, 2012

      Loved you guys. Please drive that new van through Cleveland! I will bring everyone I know to come hear you play that dirty, dirty rock and roll.

    18. Creator David Spatt on May 11, 2012

      Really happy that you guys made it. I am also really looking forward to hearing the live set recording. Rock on Birds!

    19. Creator Matthew Wilson on April 7, 2012

      Excellent!!! Just an example of how good people can do good things when they work together....hmmmmm ? Now if we could only do this Worldwide....SS>TDB, start spreading the music !!!!

    20. Creator Laura Asquino on April 4, 2012

      I knew you guys would pull it off! Congrats...sending love and "big hugs" as Devon would say....xoxo Mama Asquino

    21. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on April 3, 2012

      101% FUNDED!!!

      Yes, it's late, but we just had to say THANK YOU!!! We're nearly speechless at the level of everyone's generosity. More words tomorrow when we've had a moment to catch our breath.

      And It's not too late to give - 60 hours left til the campaign ends (Friday at 11:42am).

      We can't say it enough how thankful we are for each and every single one of our fans - we're here because of you and that's something we never forget.

    22. Creator Ariana Lamon-Anderson on April 3, 2012

      Congratulations guys!

    23. Creator Joel M. Rubin on April 3, 2012

      Almost there, hope to see you riding dirty into Saratoga Springs on 4/13. Putnam Den is the first place I ever saw you guys.

    24. Creator Kenneth Boege on April 2, 2012

      At first I thought, why do they need a van at all? If they were really motivated I think they could walk with their instruments from Brooklyn to Boston. It's not THAT far. But then I thought, what if it rained? When they played, all their shoes would squeek and who wants to listen to that? So here's a small contribution toward your worthy goal. Now haul your asses back to Boston! We miss your amazing music and Arleigh's big smile.

    25. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on April 2, 2012

      Thanks for all the love and support everybody!!! It warms our hearts and makes us want to keep doing what we do. We're so close, it's unbelievable!

    26. Creator Pat Wellspeak on March 21, 2012

      Saw these guys at Gathering of the Vibes this summer and was blown away. Went to see them a few more times in CT and they never have disappointed with the sophomore release being even better than the 1st. Hey I'm an old guy near 50 with kids their age and if I can see the talent in this group I think the young people out there should join me and help them reach their dream. Why not be able to say "you supported them when...."

    27. Creator Naomi Reid on March 19, 2012

      Feel so lucky to have your music in my life. Keep rockin, Hartford loves you!

    28. Creator mario salerno on March 13, 2012

      i saw you guys at the midnight ramble at levon helm studios and you were unbelevable..i had to donate..im a fan for life..good luck!!

    29. Creator Roger Cantley on March 13, 2012

      Hey guys, sorry I missed you in WV. Life happens I suppose. Hopefully I can make the trip to Pittsburgh or Cleveland. Good luck and keep doing what you're doing. Because what you're doing is incredible.

    30. Creator frances schiavone on March 12, 2012

      Let's keep it rollin--Godspeed xoxo

    31. Creator Gina Hartley on March 11, 2012

      As a music lover, I wish you luck. As a mom of a young adult, myself, I wish you safe travels!! Good luck!!!

    32. Creator Krispi on March 7, 2012

      Dynamite show in Boston on Friday! Safe travels and good luck reaching your goal!

    33. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on February 28, 2012

      Thank you, DM!

    34. Creator DM on February 28, 2012

      Saw you kids Satuday night at Midnight Ramble, great work
      I hope the tradition continues

    35. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on February 27, 2012

      Its all for you, Jay! :) Thank you for helping us get back to Chicago! Hope to see you there!

    36. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on February 27, 2012

      You're the best, Ashley! See you Thursday?...

    37. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on February 27, 2012

      Matt: Ha! That sounds about right! (Except our van says "Ramada" on it). Thank you for the support!!

    38. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on February 27, 2012

      Hey Eric! We're looking forward to it!! And THANK YOU!

    39. Creator Jay Forbes on February 27, 2012

      Happy to help you guys out. I really appreciate you touring all the places you did in 2011. I saw you all twice in Kansas, and since I'll be in Chicago at the end of next month, I'm hoping to catch you at Martyrs!

    40. Creator Ashley DiCarlo on February 27, 2012

      Sending love, money, and lots of luck for a rockin new van to take you awesome folks where ever your dirty hearts desire!! <3 XOXO

    41. Creator Matthew Wilson on February 25, 2012

      Great to see the money starting to add up!! Too many memories of guys jammed into a Heating and Plumbing van sitting on top of wedges and a '53 leslie!!!! Good Luck and see you all again soon!!

    42. Creator Eric Bodelson on February 24, 2012

      So excited for the new album and to finally be able to see the band live in Iowa (and maybe Minnesota?) this year!

    43. Creator Ken Lombardo on February 23, 2012

      Great! I'll help spread the word as soon as you have a date!

    44. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on February 23, 2012

      Thank you so much Peter! Can't wait for you to hear the new album - I think you're going to really dig it. The funny thing is, our van broke down on the way OUT of Ithaca, so you saw us at the right time! Thank you again so much for your support! See you soon!

    45. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on February 23, 2012

      Thank you, Ken! We're gonna be back in CT soon. Thank you so much for your support and kind words!

    46. Creator Peter on February 23, 2012

      I am thrilled to able to help, happened to catch one of your tunes on Slacker a couple of months ago had to look further into the band, bought a few singles from amazon and had to see you live, made the show in Ithaca 2/18--just glad the bus didn't break down on the way in. I am convinced that anyone who takes the time to listed will also become instant, avid fans, best of luck!

      -Peter

    47. Creator Ken Lombardo on February 22, 2012

      I have not seen that much talent on stage at the Main Pub in Manchester CT ever before . . . So we all hope you come back again before too long . . . CT will come out again for SS & the DBs! Arch St in Hartford some day would be sweet too or a nice double show with Kung Fu at the Iron Horse in Northampton, MA would be nice, very nice.

    48. Creator Arleigh Kincheloe on February 21, 2012

      Thanks Byker Bob!! See you in Omaha!!

    49. Creator Byker Bob on February 21, 2012

      Hope you get the van. I have tickets to see you in Omaha, NE. Good luck!!!
