76 Juliet Band Gear Replacement

$2,875 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 51 people in 35 months
Hello All! Thank you SO much for taking the time to check out our Go Fund Me page - even though we never thought we'd get to this point.  Unfortunately, recent situations have made it necessary to reach out to you for some help.

 The third weekend in April 2016, we as a band got pretty hit hard - our trailer containing a large portion or our musical gear was stolen.  The thief just drove away with everything – we still can’t believe it. We're in shock over the whole thing - we've been around as a band for 17 years and have never had something so debilitating, frustrating and infuriating happen to us. 

Eddie lost his entire drumset - the drums, pedals, stands, cymbals, throne...way too much list here.  Tommy lost his guitar amplifer & speaker cabinet.  We lost our monitor rack with all the indiviual components in it. They got our backdrop and banner.  Our fans.  Cables. Headsets. Road Cases. Everything is gone. 

We have a lot of our own money tied up into all the equipment that it takes to put on a performance – and now we’re in a tough spot trying to replace everything that was stolen from us. We’re learning of loopholes and clauses in the insurance that we all had on the gear that is going to ultimately keep us from recouping anywhere near the amount it will take to replace the equipment.  

We’ve already had to cancel shows for the next month because we aren’t able to pull everything together as quickly as we want to.  We have about 5 weeks before our busy summer season starts, and are hoping and praying that we can find the funds needed to get us back up and rolling – we don’t want to miss a minute of spending time with YOU at shows! We want to be up and rolling as much for you as for ourselves.  Hopefully we can pull everything together quickly – and get by with a little help from our friends. :)

Everyone in the band does this as a labor of love – we love performing, interacting with you, the crowd, and being able to get lost in the music, fun and good times with all of our friends, family and supporters.  We have no aspirations of becoming rich from performing music – we do it for the connection with you.  It might sound cliché, but a large reason we put our blood, sweat and tears into this is YOU…because, without you, there is no us. Plain and simple.

Any amount you can contribute is appreciated – we’re just excited that you took the time to read this.  And if you can’t donate, and we understand that might not be possible for everyone, just take a moment and share this page with your friends.  Pass it on and help us get back to doing what we love – making music and spending time with all of YOU!   We are beyond grateful for all the love you have shown us – and hope we can return it to you with music, dancing and good times! Hope to see you at a 76 Juliet show soon! :)

 Nothing but Love,
Tommy, Kelly, Eddie & Jake

P.S. - If we are lucky enough to get any of our gear back or raise more money than our goal, we will donate it to a fantastic local charity - This Time Tomorrow - http://thistimetomorrow.org/ - a supporter or the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

For the first real-life guitar hero I ever knew: thanks for inspiring me so much 27 years ago with your kick-ass playing and equally kick-ass work ethic. Rock and roll forever!
