Send No Territory Band to France!

$4,275 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 67 people in 5 months

No Territory Band has been invited to play the mainstage at Festival Kind of Belou in Treignac, France, on August 5th, 2018. 

After a long wait, we recently were denied a grant from a national arts foundation. That said, we are here to ask you to make a contribution.

Donate in any amount, but know that $100 (and over) gets you a free digital download of our new studio recording, There's a Hole in the Wall in the Bucket, and free admission to our July 16th send-off at Icehouse in Minneapolis. 

We're also in the process of securing shows in Switzerland and eleswhere in France. Stay tuned here and at Facebook for more info.

Dear beloved folks,

It's way past time for an update!

So, thanks to you all and my wife Emily's credit, plane tickets have been purchased. There is quite a bit in the works for the festival, including some collaborations between members of No Territory Band (NTB) and artist Sean Smuda who--as one of the artist to have tragically lost his home and studio in the Robert's Shoes building fire-- was able to secure emergency funds and an exhibition space in Treignac!

(Boy, you should have seen us working the system for a day!)

Sean's work occupies the cover of the new No Territory Band record, There's a Hole in the Wall in the Bucket, and, so, it made sense to put in the effort to include him in the festivities---and we did. We'll be staging a free jazz funeral for Daddy War Bucks (and his relatives) between the concert hall, village gallery and Treignac Projet, a former thread factory-turned arts space that lives along a river. Sean is also sending work to Magasin General in the even smaller village of Tarnac where Nathan Hanson (of NTB) and I will be performing in a trio with English pianist Tony Hymas of Jeff Beck and Terry Bozio fame.

Yes, Davu under-budgeted the full cost of travel on gofundme. That said, please tells you friends that we are still attempting to make up a deficit of approximately $3,000. Or, if able, do consider giving more yourself!

Either way, make sure to follow No Territory Band on social media so that you too can salivate over the sublime offerings of a medieval French village engulfed in a jazz fire set by No Territory Band.
