ZVB Tour Van Fund
In the 2 action packed years that our late ZVB founder Justin Nichol dedicated his life to Zed Vegas Bookings, he managed to help hundreds of bands book and promote shows, as well as book several interstate tours that allowed bands to travel between Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne Adelaide and in December 2016 even as far as Perth!
Justin worked tirelessly to plan every single aspect of each tour he managed. Whether it was provding his own car and time to transport the band & their gear, or hiring a van, his mission was to get band members and their gear safely and efficiently from point A to point B as well as having fun along the way.
Sadly in November of 2016 Justin passed away, before he could make his next big plan for ZVB come to fruition - buying Zed Vegas Booking's very own Tour Van!
Justin was always willing to put his blood, sweat, tears and own money into making sure his business looked after the bands he managed. ZVB was never about making lots of money for himself. Justin's greatest satisfaction throughout the entire time he booked and managed tours was seeing the bands have fun, and reach new audiences and feel like they were making their dreams come true.
Since Justin's passing, the Zed Vegas Bookings team have united to make sure we honour and continue all of Justin's hard work, that we continue booking and promoting shows with as much passion and enthusiasm as he did, and we continue working towards his goals for the business.
With this in mind, we would like to announce that we are officially working towards purchasing our very own ZVB Tour Van & Trailer, allowing us to offer an even better touring experience which is more cost effective for the bands we serve, as well as conitnue to build the business that Justin started.
Right now we ask you to consider contributing to this very worthy endeavour. Many of you have been to shows that Justin organised, shows that Justin invested his own money into to make them happen because he believed in the bands he promoted.
Currently we are aiming to buy a van and trailer set-up that will cost approximately $15,000, allowing us to offer bands the most competitive and cost effective touring packages possible.
This is a cause that meant everything to Justin. It was something he worked towards every single day.
We ask anyone who is willing and able, to donate anything that they can afford.
Whether it's $10 or $100. Every single dollar will add up, and every single dollar will be spent on making Justin's ZVB dream come true.
If 150 people donate $100 each, we will reach our goal.
If 300 people donate $50 each, we will reach our goal.
If 500 people donate $30 each, we will reach our goal.
Even if you donate $10, it will help us reach our goal, which will help us serve you, the local live music scene, our friends, even better.
From now on, all profit that ZVB earns from shows & official merch will be going towards the purchase of the tour van.
On behalf of the entire Zed Vegas Bookings team we thank you for taking the time to read this, your love and support through this recent difficult time and we thank you even more for donating whatever you can afford. We look forward to seeing you at ZVB shows and tours in the future!
Without you, Justin's dream would not be possible.
