Keep Knacker's Yard On The Road!

We need a bus!  For the last year, Knacker's Yard has been touring BC and beyond in 'Goldie', a great tour bus that was on loan from another band. We've played over 200 shows this past year with Goldie, traveled thousands of kilometres with her through everything from snowstorms to forest fires, and brought our music to places as remote as Malcolm Island, Salmon Beach and Caycuse. 


Sadly, Goldie has moved on now, and we need to get some wheels on the road as soon as possible so we can keep doing what we love best: playing amazing Celtic music for you guys!  

We got a great deal on a bus that will work, but now we need to put the money together to convert her to an RV-style vehicle that we can safely, comfortably and affordably tour in with our band family. 

Our costs will include: 
-Paying off the bus.
-Equipping the bus with safety features, including seat belts.
-Building sleeping spaces for touring band members and family
-Outfitting RV components like a fridge, sink and stove to complete the official RV conversion requirements.
-Mechanical inspection and any required repairs or upgrades.

Donations of materials would be amazing, too! We need plywood, 2x4s, foam mattresses, fabric for curtains, an RV fridge, stove, and sink. Please send us a message if you have supplies you could offer at knackersyardvictoria@gmail.com

We will be touring throughout BC and Alberta for almost all of March, so we are eager to get this work done FAST.  Playing music is our life and seeing your faces in the audience is the greatest privilege we can think of.  Please help us out in any way you can to keep Knacker's Yard on the road and help us keep that music flowing!

Financial contributions large or small would be greatly appreciated, or you could help by sharing our campaign with your friends!  Thanks so much!
