Bad News Band Recovery Fund

The morning of August 14th our van suddenly caught fire on the way to another show and we lost our vehicle, trailer, and most of our equipment. We have been doing this for almost two years, and are looking to continue with your help. We appreciate the prayers and passing along the word for us to keep us going.

After a damage assessment, we determined what our losses were. Unfortunately the liability insurance we had on the van will not cover any of the losses.
