Hi! We're 20 lb Sledge! That band founded by that dude, AlfonZo Rachel of PJTV.com's ZoNation. 

If you know AlfonZo, then you know his work as a Christian conservative commentator. Zo helps defend the faith and our republic with rapid, thought provoking, eye opening observations, delivered with humor and grit.

Zo applies that same approach with 20 lb SLEDGE! We understand that the views of the culture are shaped with music, movies, T.V.  shows, news media, the education system etc. And their world view and influence is mainly liberal, secular, socialists, and doesn't square with the word of God and is antithetical to our constitution.

It' obvious that news and entertainment media is a powerful tool, and the leftist are using those tools to represnt in the culture.

We gotta compete with that!

There's a lot of messages out there with poison in it.

We want to help get out there and rock the antidote! 

People receive messages in many different ways.

There has to be more than just AM Radio and Fox news to get the "Right" message out there to connect with more of the culture.

We won't be promoting the objectification of women with our music, glorifying drug use, cursing America, and cynically lamenting like the left does. 

We're not interested in conforming to what's pop culture now.

So if you want to do your part to see the culture start shifting from it's leftward trajectory, help us represent in the culture! Show that there's a demand for it so other's will start supplying more of it in the culture too!

Help us get out there and cast that seed.

We're not trying to get out there and preach to people, just hit 'em with the gospel with our grizzly grooves and let it soak in as the sound tackles 'em and infiltrates 'em with sonic osmosis.

What are the funds for? 1st up. Gas money!

Well, travel money. We're trying to bring the show to where folks have love for us, and use that to spread the love! We hope That's your town! 
We're not even going to spend money on lodging. We'll fly in, get our Sledge on, and fly out to be back on time for our day jobs!
It's going to take an average of $1200.00 to fly us and our gear to each show and back. We welcome folks wanting to donate flyer miles too! If you know how to do that, groovy! 

Next, the venue. 
We're not trying to book something like the staple center, (yet) but we do want to book at  venues that have great atmospheres, reputations and amazing sound systems with sound engineers that know how to get every ounce of "Awwwww Yeah" out of 'em! We want ya to have the best of expereinces ya can have in a venue with a capacity of about 250 people. Venues can charge up to $700.00 to perform at their venue on a Friday or Saturday night.

Then there's promotions. We have to hit up publications in the cities we'll be performing in. That's between $60.00 to $200.00 depending on the city to run a print or online add for a week. We need to send in promo posters for the venues and send flyers to Sledge Corp. Street teams to campus with.

We need to produce the merchandise to sell while at the  shows. CD's, shirts, hats, sweaters, etc.

We're not giving a high balled figure in hopes to get a minimum to work with. We need to meet that goal!

The 1st ten cities we're Sledgin' for are:

Houston TX,

Atlanta, GA

Chicago, IL

Phoenix, AZ

Las Vegas, NV

New York, NY

Colorado Springs, CO

Jacksonville, FL

St. Louis, MO

Indianapolis, IN

These are the cities so far that have that show the biggest populations of Sledge Heads and Sledgettes!

If we're able to make our goal of playing these cities, then we will target the next ten cities and maybe the odds are good your town or a town closer to you will be among them!

Thank you for supporting us in the effort in taking the show on the road!

Blessings and Sledge On!

Please allow four to six weeks for deliveries. New album download or CD is not available at this time but upon completion of it the files for those who are eledgible for the down load will receive the files, and those eledgible for the new album on CD will receive the CD!

We will send you a catalogue of our shirt sizes, hoodie sizes, and hats upon reception of respected contribution!

If ya contribute $100.00 or more as anonymous we won't add your name to our website so as to maintain your anonymity. 

If you contribute at the $250.00 level as anonymous, please advise if you'd want us to do a thank you video using your name or not.

Be sure to send us your email address so you can get your gifts! Contact through  www.20lbSledge.com

UPDATE!!! Note. We will be leaving up the gofundme page but ceasing with the rewards. Since we've reached our goal the contributions are going to slow way down, which means ordering merch will take really long and/or be really expensive if we don't order a certain amount. Thank you so much if you still just want to support without the rewards! Blessings, and Sledge On!!!

*** ELECTRIC EXODUS ***

Howdy Sledgers! Next set of lyrics for you leading up to the relase of the next album so ya can be ready to sing along!

ELECTRIC EXODUS

Music authored and performed by AlfonZo Rachel
Lyrics by AlfonZo Rachel and Todd Stevens, performed by Todd Stevens

VERSE (by AR)
He’s got the whole world in His hands,
but it feels like we fell through the holes-
where there were nails.
When I feel I’m sinking down-
like Peter weighed down with doubt-
I remember the power that parted the water
to lead His People out.

CHANNEL (AR)
I resolve to trust
Who gives life to dust.
To get us off the hook-
He got on the cross for us.
The King is risen-
To bust us out of prison. Go!

REFRAIN (AR)
Apocalypse.
It’s gonna be a jail-break.
Truth and freedom is revealed.

PRE-CHORUS (AR)
(YOU ARE)
The freedom from Egypt and
(YOU ARE)
The freedom from Babylon.
Ransom the flock out of bondage
when death comes to take us hostage.
In God we trust for the Electric Exodus.

CHORUS (AR)
Electric Exodus.
Take us up before the wrath comes down.
Electric Exodus.
In a flash the flock will leave the ground.
Elected to be no longer hell-bound.

VERSE 2 (AR)
Which way is up?
Which way is out?
Which way is in?
Up with the King.
Out from the prison.
Into the Kingdom.
You Dig?
Part the sky like the waters,
and lead us over gravity.
From Egypt to eternity.
Lets blow this joint.

REPEAT:
CHANNEL, REFRAIN, PRE-CHORUS, and CHORUS

BRIDGE (by TS)
Illuminate in every way we’ve got our
(Eyes open)
Speak! We want all the Words You say.
We’ve got our,
(Ears open)
(Live pure)
Strangers and pilgrims.
(Make sure)
Are called in election.
(Endure)
This pain and suffering.
We will see you as you are.

REPEAT
PRE-CHORUS, CHORUS
and REFRAIN

While we're finishing the mixes and mastering we'll be sharing lyrics with y'all so ya can be singing along right out the gate! Blessings!

** Measured In Sky **
Next set of lyrics from the next 20 lb SLEDGE album. Coming soon!

Music Authored and performed by AlfonZo Rachel
Lyrics by AlfonZo Rachel. Performed by Todd Stevens

MEASURED IN SKY

VERSE 1
Swing the rhythm of a ScrewTape letter.
Not the Red letter that the heretic spoke.
He’s a total drag and my ways is better.
Do it 'til you’re satisfied.
Do it 'til ya choke.
It’s just the dust of the ground you went back to.
The freedom that ya wanted now traps you.
Thinking you can live it up now-
‘cause forever can wait.
'Cause if you ain’t sinnin’ then-
ya just ain’t livin’

SUB-VERSE 1
Allow me to entice you.
My palace of pleasures is fully loaded.
But not with things that delight,
but with things that ignite.
Don’t ask yourself if it’s worth it.

CHORUS
You only live forever once.
Your life is measured in sky.
You only live forever once.
Forever smoke or shine.

VERSE 2
I lied before when I said you won’t die.
Now let me sucker y’all one more time.
Everybody’s gotta die one day
forget the old book of the way beyond the grave.
Don’ live by a fairy tale
where the good go to heaven
and the bad go to hell.
Shining on High
Or smokin’ below.
It’s just the language of mind control.

SUB-VERSE 2
Don’t let some old book jive you.
The gospels out dated and over rated.
You’re missing all the pleasure
for your eternal treasure.
Gamble for the rush and wage your soul.

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Measured in sky.
Is it so hard to believe?
Smoke or shine
For eternity.

I wanna go to the spirit in the sky.
Don’t wanna smoke I wanna shine if I die.

If they should lay me down to rest,
I wanna go to the place that’s the best

Recommend me to the spirit in the sky, Lord
Recommend me to the spirit in the sky
Recommend me to the spirit in the sky, Lord

I wanna be where you are
I pray the Lambs Book of life
inks my name by the One
who was slain,

REPEAT CHORUS
