WOW! just WOW! Such an incredible outpouring of love and support! Carolyn is humbled and so grateful. Watch her Facebook page for updates. She is still stuck in Spain but after she meets with the embassy tomorrow, she'll know weather or not she will get to finish the tour or if she'll be sent home. Again, thank you so much for stepping up and taking care of Carolyn!
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE
We have updated the rewards & now only have the board recording from Summertime Blues festival in Gamlitz, Austria earlier on this tour. The show was a magical night and this is a rare recording. We have removed the big ticket incentives because Carolyn has met her goal and doesn't want to encourage you to give too much. She feels bad about taking more than she needs. So, if you would like to have the download of the show in Austria, then it is offered as $25 donation. Carolyn says if you have enough to share, then please consider helping our friend Dana Robbins who plays sax for Delbert McClinton. She is fighting cancer and has a go fund me page. Here is a link to her page
Carolyn Wonderland and her band were robbed of all their tour money while they were performing in the Canary Islands! They had completed most of their tour! They are stuck without passports, credit cards or money to get from point A to point B! A nightmare!!! Carolyn is such a good hearted person & sweet soul. She always does everything she can to help anyone in need. She always contributes to gofundme fundraisers for friends & fans in need. This is our chance to help her this time. Read her facebook post below and please consider contributing. Every little bit helps and a lot helps a little more! Thanks!
"Ever wonder what it's like to live out the movie "Lost in Translation?" Shelley Cox & I just got to experience it for a day.
We've been working hard to recover from having to eat a few airline tickets this summer, knowing that if we scrimped and saved for a few months, we'd make it to the fall and everybody would be paid and groovy. That plan was just punched straight through the gut last night. After playing a really great run of gigs in the Canary Islands, we were robbed from the secured backstage area while playing the last songs of the night. They got all of our tour money, my phone, wallet, credit cards, drivers licence, both Shelley & my passports... The good news is: at least it wasn't violent. Having experienced both, this sucks, but at least I'm walking around talking about it and not laid up somewhere. Thanks to all who have offered help and kind words. We spent several hours with the police and on the phone trying to figure out if and how we might be able to finish our tour (still holding out hope for Amsterdam, Belgium, France and flying out of Zurich early August) Good news: they let us fly to Madrid since there's no Embassy on Lanzarote. Bad news: tomorrow's a holiday in Madrid and we won't know if we have to be sent home or get to finish the tour until the Embassy opens Tuesday. Shelley & I cannot leave the country without visiting the Embassy in person. Kevin Lance & Bobby Perkins made it to Amsterdam. Shelley & I found a hotel that would take us with our photocopied passports and police report so we don't have to live in the airport til Tuesday. Our great little community of friends have kept our spirits up and we're going to try to sleep after the first shower and chance at sleep in 36 hours.If anyone is in the market for a nice Les Paul Goddess, I'll be looking to sell mine when we get home.
I am so glad to see that so many people stepped up to help. I hope you ENJOY the rest of your tour.
Julie and I are happy to help. Prayers and positive thoughts to you. Stay strong and grin on❤️
