Rock N' Roll band Naked Gods of majestic Boone, North Carolina need a van to tour and play music for friends and strangers alike.

Dearest friends, present and future, near and far:

Hi! Hello! We are Naked Gods, a rock and roll burley pop five man stand up band from Boone, NC. When not tending to bar keeping, coffee slinging, pencil sharpening, web designing, and dishwashing, we are a group of best-friend musicians following our dreams of sharing and performing music for you, your friends, and whoever wants to listen, jump around, and have a good time. Nothing makes us more happy than to visit new towns, meet nice folks, rock out, and (maybe) sleep on your floor before its time for the next gig.

Unfortunately, we, or, more precisely, our touring van mobile Eddie Van, has fell upon some rough times. Actually, Eddie sort of, kind of, well, died. While on our SXSW tour adventure, and near to the lovely city of Macon, GA, our friend Eddie made his last voyage. Bummer.

Touring is extremely difficult without a van…

This, friends, is where you come in. Over the next few months, Naked Gods will be working on our next record, with plans to tour upon its release, as well as various gigs in the meantime. Hence, we are diving into this Kickstarter program with the hopes that enough money can be raised to make said endeavors a reality. Should you be feeling generous, you can donate various amounts of money to our cause (buying a new van), and in return, you’ll receive any number of exciting, magical, and sometimes handcrafted presents from us, as a token of our generosity.

As mentioned, there is nothing we in Naked Gods love more than playing our music for people, and we are totally jazzed at the prospect of coming to your town, hanging out with you, and doing just that! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and watch our short film, and for any and all support you might be willing and capable of giving us. With your help, we’ll be back out on the road soon!

Thanks again, and see you shortly in the dregs of some rock and roll dive…

Take care,
Naked Gods
