Hello Family, Friends, Fans, Strangers, and (hopefully not) Enemies,
Thank you for listening to our music and continuing to support us with your love. We appreciate that you have taken the time out of your day to read our plight for help.
For those of you that know (or don't), we are a Montreal-based band John Jacob Magistery. We have been making music and touring Canada and the U.S. for 4 years. In that time, we have been blessed with many amazing experiences and, in our own way, we have tried to use each of those experiences as an opportunity to repay those we meet with our music. From writing and recording to rehearsing and performing, we are a completely independent band. The support we receive from our fans is paramount for us to continue being able to produce art and travel to where ever people want us to perform. In the past, we have used any cars that were at our disposal to criss-cross around Quebec, Ontario, the maritimes, or the Northern and Southern States. However, using multiple cars for one trip is not exactly cost effective and our options of working vehicles are running slim. It is with this aim that we turn to ask all of you lovely people for help in whatever way, big or small, that you can. We are aiming to raise 5000$ online, in order to add 1000$ of our own funds towards a Band Van (that will live forever).
Our next Tour starts at the end of August so we are hoping to make some moves before that time.
We are prepared to repay each donation with our time and the music that you will be helping to support.
Here is a list of prizes for donation amounts:
5$ - Digital 'Narcissism Unto Loneliness' or 'Harmoney' EP with shoutout in the online credits
10$ - Digital 'Narcissism Unto Loneliness' and 'Harmoney' EP with shoutout in the online credits
