I am always in awe of how many people who know my brother. They call him the dancing piper, the energetic multi-talented musician from the band, "Molly's Revenge." I know him as my brother, who I am always so proud of, a brother who works extremely hard at his craft. His work ethic is unparalleled.

He is a very special person who gives everything of himself to bring his passion, his music, to so many. He is one of the most giving people I know and he truly brings joy to those his music touches. No matter how many miles he has to travel. He has never missed a gig his entire career until now. As a professional musician, his livelihood is his music. The two things he relies on to make a living is his car and his hands. 

The other day he and his girlfriend Rebecca, (who is also a professional musician and the other half of his musical duo, "The Fire" ) were enjoying a rare day off in the midst of a busy tour schedule. It was the middle of the day a drunk driver who also seemed to be high on drugs came careening out of nowhere at dangerously high speed and struck them head on. With the safety of their seat belts and the airbags my brother and his girlfriend miraculously survived with no broken bones or internal damage.  

My brother's wrist however, which is key to playing his music, did get injured in addition they both got severe burns to the face and arms from the chemical in the airbags upon impact. 

His car was completely totaled. 

My brother has survived many hard times before including his car being stolen while he was on tour in Oregon (the car was later found), his bagpipes being stolen twice and many other roadblocks. He always does so with positivity, a strong character, and even a sense of humor.  But this accident will have a financial impact that will greatly affect his being able to make a living in the near future.

It is unclear if the girl who was responsible had insurance (awaiting police report) and my brother's insurance may not cover all of the damages and loss of work during his recovery. My brother and his girlfriend work very hard and do so much to touch a multitude lives. I am hoping to ask for help from those who would like to donate.

He can't do what he does without reliable transportation and I am reaching out to all those who my brother's music has touched to help him out in this difficult situation.  Any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated, every little bit would help.

If you know anyone who would like to help please share. My goal is to help raise enough to go towards a replacement car and maybe help with bills until he and Rebecca are able to recover fully enough to take on their full workload again.

Thank you so much for supporting my brother David, Rebecca and their music. I am so grateful as his sister for anyone who can help and grateful to God that they are safe.

Sincerely,

Darci

We are $555 from our initial goal in only 13 hours, you all are absolutely amazing. I am increasing the goal in hopes to cover the unexpected cancelation of some of their upcoming shows (which is looking like it will have a significant financial impact on them).

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for helping my brother and his beautiful partner in music and in life. David and Rebecca are eternally grateful for each and everyone of you. <3

Just wanted to send a couple updates from David and Rebecca (see below). They are humbled by the support and love everyone is showing. We are already a little halfway to our goal. It would be great to surpass the goal amount as they just made the very hard decision of canceling their appearance with Molly's Revenge and The Fire at one of their biggest gigs in Utah. A million thank yous to everyone who has shared and donated so far. And thank you for your continued support of these two amazing individuals. I know it means the world to David and Rebecca and to our families that they are so loved.:

"Dear Friends, I am so grateful to all of you for kind words, good vibes, and prayers. David and I feel so lucky to be surrounded by so many caring, supportive, and compassionate people. We look forward to playing music for you again soon. <3" Rebecca Lomnicky

"Thank you all SO much for your support and good thoughts during this difficult & scary time-- I cannot even begin to express how much it means to me, and how much I am in need of & appreciate hearing your kind words right now. Thank you for all of the wonderful comments and out-pouring of support...We are so thankful that the crash was not worse, and although we've been resting and our burns and scrapes are healing, my left wrist and arm, the key limb for playing pipes, bodhran, and guitar the way I do, is getting worse-- that spot took a lot of the impact bracing against the steering wheel as we were hit. It's very painful, and just as painful is having to cancel my appearance with The Fire and Molly's Revenge at this weekends Scottish Festival in Utah. My awesome band mates, John Weed & Stuart Mason will carry on and I have no doubt they will rock the stage in our absence. Having never missed a gig, ever, giving the performance 100%, rain or shine, sick or wounded, crowd or a wee few, it kills me to not be there... All I can do is see the specialist asap, rest, and hope for the best... Not knowing how things will play out is scary but your good vibes and prayers will get me through--THANK YOU!!! <3 "~David
