Down 4 The Count is a Los Angeles-based a cappella vocal jazz ensemble, trying to get to San Francisco on March 19!
Since 2004, Down 4 The Count has been a regular participant in the Los Angeles Harmony Sweepstakes. Unfortunately, this year we have a scheduling conflict! We have been accepted into the San Francisco Harmony Sweepstakes, but they don't cover our travel expenses. The specific expenses we are looking to cover are airfare for four people (one person is going to drive to save us the expense of renting a car, but we can't all do that due to our dayjobs) and hotel accommodations for 5 people - probably in 3 rooms. (We all like each other enough to share, but sleeping on a fold-out couch is not advisable before a vocal performance!)
You'll notice that this is a very modest project, with a modest goal. The project is scheduled to end on March 2, which should give us enough time to book flights and rooms if we make our fund-raising goal. Although Down 4 The Count began in 2003, we have never yet traveled farther from Los Angeles than San Diego, and we are itching to do that. If our foray to the Bay is successful, we will return in May - Hey, that rhymes! - but at that time, our expenses would be paid.
You can find out more about Down 4 The Count at our website, www.down4thecount.com. We are also on Facebook, Twitter, Last fm, MySpace, Eventful, and Sonicbids. Please consider contributing to our project, and we will keep you informed of all our progress and successes. Thank you very much!!
