Help Me “Break On Through”!!

My band (The Darbies) and I need your help to “break on through to the other side” of our fundraising goals for our upcoming tour with the L.A. Guns. We  have been blessed with an invitation to go on tour with the L.A. Guns this April. However this tour comes with a whopping $23,299.00 price tag. Part of the deal for The Darbies to be able to tour with the L.A. Guns and thus tap their devoted fan base is that The Darbies must bear all costs for transporting the gear of both bands to east coast and back.  We have been saving in earnest in order to make this dream a reality. However, with the beginning of the tour fast approaching we are still $10,000 short. We are hoping with your graciousness and help we will be able to close the gap in time. Thank you in advance!
