Help Ben and Andrea stay in the US!

Help keep Beat Root Revival in the USA! Ben Jones and Andrea Magee will have to leave their beloved adopted home of Austin if they don't get a 3-year work visa renewal soon. Unfortunately, because of lawyers and fees, this is very expensive--over $9,000 (see details below). They would much rather earn the funds they need with their music but that's just not realistic given the time constraits. It's up to us, Ben and Andrea's friends and music family to make this happen. Consider choosing a reward, donating a reward or just donating a few of your hard-earned dollars to help our newest Austin treasure stay here with us.

$920 - Government filing fee
$2,450 - Expedited processing
$700 - AFM Letter of acceptance
$5,000 - legal fees (lawyers!)

-Maureen and Kirby Walker, Rhett and Deb Bigham, Robert Isaacson and Susan Patterson
