Fundage for 20 lb Sledge Tour
If you know AlfonZo, then you know his work as a Christian conservative commentator. Zo helps defend the faith and our republic with rapid, thought provoking, eye opening observations, delivered with humor and grit.
Zo applies that same approach with 20 lb SLEDGE! We understand that the views of the culture are shaped with music, movies, T.V. shows, news media, the education system etc. And their world view and influence is mainly liberal, secular, socialists, and doesn't square with the word of God and is antithetical to our constitution.
It' obvious that news and entertainment media is a powerful tool, and the leftist are using those tools to represnt in the culture.
We gotta compete with that!
There's a lot of messages out there with poison in it.
We want to help get out there and rock the antidote!
People receive messages in many different ways.
There has to be more than just AM Radio and Fox news to get the "Right" message out there to connect with more of the culture.
We won't be promoting the objectification of women with our music, glorifying drug use, cursing America, and cynically lamenting like the left does.
We're not interested in conforming to what's pop culture now.
So if you want to do your part to see the culture start shifting from it's leftward trajectory, help us represent in the culture! Show that there's a demand for it so other's will start supplying more of it in the culture too!
Help us get out there and cast that seed.
We're not trying to get out there and preach to people, just hit 'em with the gospel with our grizzly grooves and let it soak in as the sound tackles 'em and infiltrates 'em with sonic osmosis.
What are the funds for? 1st up. Gas money!
Well, travel money. We're trying to bring the show to where folks have love for us, and use that to spread the love! We hope That's your town!
We're not even going to spend money on lodging. We'll fly in, get our Sledge on, and fly out to be back on time for our day jobs!
It's going to take an average of $1200.00 to fly us and our gear to each show and back. We welcome folks wanting to donate flyer miles too! If you know how to do that, groovy!
Next, the venue.
We're not trying to book something like the staple center, (yet) but we do want to book at venues that have great atmospheres, reputations and amazing sound systems with sound engineers that know how to get every ounce of "Awwwww Yeah" out of 'em! We want ya to have the best of expereinces ya can have in a venue with a capacity of about 250 people. Venues can charge up to $700.00 to perform at their venue on a Friday or Saturday night.
Then there's promotions. We have to hit up publications in the cities we'll be performing in. That's between $60.00 to $200.00 depending on the city to run a print or online add for a week. We need to send in promo posters for the venues and send flyers to Sledge Corp. Street teams to campus with.
We need to produce the merchandise to sell while at the shows. CD's, shirts, hats, sweaters, etc.
We're not giving a high balled figure in hopes to get a minimum to work with. We need to meet that goal!
The 1st ten cities we're Sledgin' for are:
Las Vegas, NV
New York, NY
Colorado Springs, CO
St. Louis, MO
These are the cities so far that have that show the biggest populations of Sledge Heads and Sledgettes!
If we're able to make our goal of playing these cities, then we will target the next ten cities and maybe the odds are good your town or a town closer to you will be among them!
Thank you for supporting us in the effort in taking the show on the road!
Blessings and Sledge On!

UPDATE!!! Note. We will be leaving up the gofundme page but ceasing with the rewards. Since we've reached our goal the contributions are going to slow way down, which means ordering merch will take really long and/or be really expensive if we don't order a certain amount. Thank you so much if you still just want to support without the rewards! Blessings, and Sledge On!!!

Hi guys! So excited for you & your message! Now, are you just trying to play at "Christian" venues or are you willing to play for colleges, C&W venues, inner city parks, etc. and I would like to know when you want to play Houston because maybe I can get you to play at more than one place. God Bless, Shelly
