About this project

Extra Action Marching Band is excited to announce we've been offered a showcase at South by Southwest, the legendary music festival, but with such short notice we are in need of some funding to get there.

This year from March 17th-20th, South by Southwest or SXSW will showcase over 1,900 bands from around the world in countless venues, hundreds of thousands of people will travel to Austin Texas to see them. Extra Action will play in the streets, in clubs and at parties for free. As an unsigned, unsponsored band we are not receiving any money, so we must travel out of pocket and couch surf. We are a large band, our airplane tickets alone cost $10k, we set our Kickstarter goal $5k because that's the barebones minimum we'd need to travel without the need of horse and wagon. The more you donate, the more likely we are to break even.

It takes a lot of money and energy to keep a band this big going and we couldn't do it without our awesome fans, we are grateful for any amount you'd like to offer to help us share the Extra Action experience with the world. Our prizes for donating are as varied as our members so please check them out and tell your friends, there's something for everyone.

A million thanks,

Extra Action Marching Band

    Spend an evening amongst the the stars with Extra Action's own Greg Jones. On a equally agreeable night and location, with appropriate weather, our trumpet player and self-proclaimed amateur astronomer will guide you thru the night sky with his trusty 8" Celestron Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and GPS guided computer controlled mount. Experience the distant past with your own eyes. Listen and learn while Greg Jones gets all Cliff Clavin with facts and figures about our Solar System, Galaxy, and Universe. This ain't the Hubble Space telescope, and we ain't NASA, but they didn't get invited to SXSW and we did. Plus, we let you drink on our ride. Astronomy and Drinking, is there any other way?
