Here’s an update from the band Sidewalk Prophets, who experienced a devastating fire that destroyed nearly $100,000 worth of musical instruments and equipment. The band set up a GoFundMe page and below is the update less that two weeks later.
– from Sidewalk Prophets
It’s 6:18am on February 19th and the bus is heading to Texas for a few days off. Last night we finished the West Coast leg of the Something Different Tour. Approximately nine days ago we suffered a massive fire and were uncertain if the tour could continue or not. What has transpired since those nine days has been nothing short of awesome, humbling, and inspiring. We have seen a community come together and raise over $97,000 to keep this band on the road doing what love to do and even more importantly (view campaign page) what we’ve been called to do. While in Texas for our days off we will begin the rebuilding process. We have a new trailer on the way, new merchandise being re-ordered, we’ve got new instruments and gear slowly being pieced together and all of this is possible because of you. Our team compiled the video below as a thank you to each of you for your support. We’ll keep you updated as everything continues to progress. We love each of you more than you know!
