    6. Creator Dr. CK on March 14, 2012

      Finally more cubby space!

    7. Creator March Fourth Marching Band on March 13, 2012

      Yes, and yes. We'll be doing a call out soon to gather all the names.

    8. Creator Racy-Ro on March 12, 2012

      Just wondering? Does everyone who backed you get their name on the new bus?? If so, can I change up the name??

    9. Creator Cathy Carrillo on March 12, 2012

      awesome! hopefully your new bus will be bringing you back to Albuquerque this year as well.

    10. Creator March Fourth Marching Band on March 12, 2012

      We'll be compiling a separate list for the plaque. Stay tuned...

    11. Creator Oregon Pinkrose on March 12, 2012

      Those of us that backed with a level more then $10 get our names on the honorary plaque, yes?
      Will that be a separate questionnaire or will it be the same name as what I put for my guest list name?

    12. Creator Mary and Joe Mazza on March 9, 2012

      I redid my payment and it still didn't go through. Amazon is stating they are tgrying to resolve the issues. Keep us posted.
      Again, congratulations to a great group of people!

    13. Creator Maria Marr on March 9, 2012

      Yes, keep me payment didn't work either!

    14. Creator sherry dooley on March 9, 2012

      tried to re-do my payment - and Amazon states the problem is on their end and it will be worked out shortly.

    15. Creator sherry dooley on March 9, 2012

      yep, I just checked my email - and it's stating the payment didn't go through. If worse comes to worse - I'll send my payment via paypal - as a gift - so there are no fees taken out. I've never dealt with Amazon as a payment service before.

    16. Creator sherry dooley on March 9, 2012


    17. Creator Ami Dodson on March 9, 2012

      Aha, glad to see I'm not the only one having payment problems. I'll wait for an update. It looks like the problem must be on Amazon's end - maybe all your fans crashed the site!

    18. Creator March Fourth Marching Band on March 9, 2012

      We've heard from a lot of people that their payment wasn't processed. It seems like Amazon is having some problems, so hopefully it will get worked out soon. We'll keep you posted!

    19. Creator Racy-Ro on March 9, 2012

      Hey guys just got an email saying card no go, I have plenty to cover it. Went back in to do again and it says error with Amazon? Any clue ..system crashing with so many backers!!!
      Can't miss out on my Beast Bundle!!

    20. Creator Paul Rosen on March 8, 2012

      So glad to help and even more happy you made your goal! Hope you come back to Kansas to spread the joy! I try to preach the M4 gospel everyday in every way. Much love from the Midwest,

    30. Creator Paul Chandler on March 8, 2012

      <$5000 with 20 hours left... WE CAN DO THIS!!!!

    31. Creator Brian P on March 7, 2012

      SIX !

    32. Creator Karen Osmon on March 5, 2012

      Hey Kev glad you reminded me. Am sending it on to friends and family.

    33. Creator Vicky on March 1, 2012

      6 days to go.... less than $16,000 to raise! We CAN do it! Two thirds raised already... we have a time line here! Whatever the amount... NOW is the time! And, my experience is that donors DO get special treatment! I will invite you to my house next time they bless me with their presence in EUGENE! (Surely they won't mind... right?) Note: This is an unofficial invite but... really, if you just showed up?

    34. Creator Scott Goodin on March 1, 2012

      You guys should really get another option up there that I'm sure festi-goers would lovvvvvve... How about the chance to camp with and/or party with the band? I know for a fact some High Sierra peeps would be alllll about this!

    35. Creator Plunder Fest on February 24, 2012

      If you guys have the last weekend of July open.... come say hi to us at PlunderFest.
      I wish I could donate more... But I'm about to launch a project on here as well for a worlds first lighting rig.

    36. Creator Todd Romero on February 23, 2012

      Please come back through Houston!

    37. Creator simplirproject on February 11, 2012

      I posted this to my facebook wall yesterday. Looks like it got a few bucks in but where are the rest of the fans? Try sending it to the jackrabbit speaks burner mailing list. Best of luck.

    38. Creator Mary and Joe Mazza on February 10, 2012

      I am trying to do some easy math calculations but I don't know how many shows M4 has done even in the last year. So let's say they have done 25 shows and 1000 folks have seen those shows ( M4...please correct my figures). That means 25,000 people have seen their shows. If each person who has seen the band pledged $10, that would equate to $250,000. So, as I see the current number of backers is only 220, I am perplexed. Where are the rest of you? Give what you can but please give to this project.

    39. Creator March Fourth Marching Band on January 23, 2012

      Thanks, Sarah! As a matter of fact, we just booked a show in Felton on May 1! Hopefully we'll have our new bus rolling by then.

    40. Creator Sarah Pierce on January 23, 2012

      Hey crew! You guys rocked my world both shows at Strawberry Music Festival! I wear your shirt (the tank top with the Dali style elephants) all the time and I really hope to see you do a show in the Santa Cruz, Ca area sometime soon!! Best of luck to you and your new wheels. Love you all.
