WEINLAND a Portland based band, needs your help. We'll give you a 1974 van, seriously! Recently featured on NPR and heard on MTV.

The Portland, Oregon quintet WEINLAND is making a new record. We're asking for your help! 

WEINLAND is currently in an amazing position of artistic freedom and excitement. Between labels and looking for love in all the wrong places! We have new songs written, we've started recording them, and the momentum is building (recent features on NPR and MTV and a SXSW showcase ain't no joke!). We're asking you to join the team and help us pay the costs associated with this upcoming album.

Please consider donating to the cause and sharing a link to this page with friends. In all sincerity, your support means the world to us.

UPDATE: We are almost there!  With one week to go we are feeling good about our chances!  Remember this is an all or nothing funding scenario.. so if we don't reach our goal, all donations are cancelled.

That said: This is also the only way to pre-order our album and get great rewards and direct recognition from the band for your early support!  We appreciate it so much.  Please consider donating now, even if we reach our goal, knowing that we still need your support and our costs are actually much higher than our goal.. Why didn't we set a higher goal then?  Because its all or nothing and this amount is going to help out tremendously!!!


(we couldn't say that enough.  we're truly touched by your support.)

    The WEINLANDER (classic) ... (as is) This 1974 Ford Econoline Van has been in Adam's family since his grandfather purchased it in Medford, OR in 1975. Four generations of Shearers have appreciated its beautify. And WEINLAND spent the first 2 years of its life touring around the country in this champ. Last summer some punks shot out a couple of the windows and it has sat dormant in the driveway since.. Adam has been waiting for someone to sign him up for pimp my ride (the love for this van runs VERY deep) but it hasn't happened yet and so its time to let it go to someone who has the skillz or the funds to bring it back to life. You can see what cherry one looks like here (ours is identical but has a hard pop top and is in way rougher shape): And of course if you don't want the van.. but you're really funny and you want to sponsor it... we'll donate it in your honor! You can choose to donate it to Oregon Public Broadcasting or The Oregon Humane Society! (we believe they both take cars as charitable donation).

You got birthdays covered for the year!
