A few weeks ago, we played a show with the amazing Civil Wars in Philadelphia, PA. After the show, we packed up in the van and headed out for another show in Pittsburgh. During the journey, our bass player Ben Mars’ 150 year old bass was terribly injured. When we took the upright out of the van, we found a hole about the size of a small watermelon on the side of his bass. It was a terrible feeling. Big Benny almost fainted when he saw the damage that had been done. After the show, we came back to NYC and had the damaged appraised. It’s going to cost around $4,000 to repair it.
Please help us raise the money to help us repair Ben’s bass! Here is a video of Ben telling the story of this incredible instrument and a Paypal account where you can donate! Any amount will help. Please help spread the word!
