Pete Shand Emergency Surgery Fund

$46,338 of $40,000 goal

Raised by 797 people in 21 months

Pete Shand is the bassist of The New Mastersounds, and has been since its inception 18 years ago.

Pete needs your help! He is having emergency surgery on August 24. He has developed a spinal condition as a direct result of playing the bass. He is suffering with severe nerve pain, numbness and muscle wastage, and is currently bedridden, unable to fly home to Europe for this essential operation.

Aside from being the NMS backbone and a serious road dog, he’s also played and produced with many stars throughout his career… from Edwin Starr to Bernard Purdie to Derek of Pretty Lights.  Without this surgery, Pete’s career is over... no more filling the world with joyful funkiness. 

We have managed to schedule emergency surgery for him, and this is where we need your help. By Wednesday, we need to raise a deposit for the surgery, or the doctors will refuse to operate. If you love The New Mastersounds, Pete, or funk music in general, please consider donating any amount to help Pete achieve a full recover. Your donation will help Pete to have this much needed surgery and recover, just in time for NMS fall tour.
