Last week we received some bad news about our beloved 1992 Chevy G20 van. The transmission, which has been acting up for a couple of months, is officially on its way out and needs to be rebuilt.
This summer we’ve got upcoming gigs in Bakersfield, San Luis Obispo, Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, Ashland, Eugene, Portland, Parkdale, Seattle, Olympia, Santa Ana, Pacifica, and Penngrove and without the transmission rebuild we won’t even be able to make it out of the state.
This van has been a home for us and our two dogs for almost two years. Its sheltered us from the snow, rain, and cold, and has carried us over 40,000 miles to gigs in dozens of cities on the west and east coasts.
Its not just a home - this van is a symbol of our dream to continue making music, cutting records, and playing shows for friends, fans and family all over the country.
We are eternally grateful for the life that music has given us and for the many friendships we've made over the years.
As hard as it is to ask for help, the truth is that we need you to keep going.
In addition to the transmission work we also need new tires, shocks, and an oil leak repaired.
To show our appreciation we are screen printing by hand a round of limited edition #keepbearcoonrollin tshirts that we will send to every person that donates $20 or more.
Thank you so much for your friendship and support over the years. We hope to see you soon out on the road!
