4.14.16 ~ "Lighter Bones" Tour Campaign Officially Launched.

--HELLO!
We are the piano-rock duo Ms. Fridrich's Messy Ann Band.  We've been playing music together since 2011.  This year, we are releasing new music & we are going on tour.  Our first release this year is our "You Got a Reaction" EP.  It comes out soon!  We are excited to share this music with you, in recorded form, but also in person.


We created this tour fundrasing campaign to invite our fans to be directly involved in choosing our 2016 Fall tour route, so we can come play for you!

We are naming our tour The Lighter Bones Tour.  "Lighter bones" is a lyric in one of our new songs, off of our upcoming album.  The song marvels at the anatomical feature of birds', e.g. their hollow bones, which allow them to be light enough to fly. 

If only we had "lighter bones", so we could fly to you, perch on a branch in your yard, and sing you a tune....

 

Here's the Basics

  • Our Fundraising Goal is $200 per town/city. ($2400 total.)

  • First 12 cities to reach $200 will be CONFIRMED 2016 Fall Tour Stops! 
    We are committed to your town!!

  • Pledge $5 or more to Put your town on our Tour Map.

  • Every backer receives 1 unreleased Ms.Fridrich track right away!

  • All Rewards $10 or more recieve a pre-release digital copy of our new "You Got a Reaction" EP this Summer, when we are done mixing.

How You Can Help Us

--DONATE FOR YOUR TOWN/CITY and SHARE!

Put your town on our tour map by pledging as little as $5, THEN share this campaign with 10 friends! 

If just 10 people contribute $20 or more, we can reach our funding goal of $200!  And, we will come to your town, no matter how far across the US we have to go! 

 

--WHY $200?
This is about 50% of our total tour expenses, divided by 12 towns.  We traveled around the country, and we've tracked our expense on past tours.  Gas, food, and lodging are expensive.  We could use some help with this, is all. :-)

 

NOTE: We are using this trusty secure internet payments provider to accept donations.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us directly!

How We Say "THANK YOU"

--FUN REWARDS!
Every time you pledge, you get a reward as a HUGE Thank You! from us.   The more you donate, the bigger the reward.

We're gonna make homemade cookies for you, we're gonna send you "Lighter Bones" tour t-shirts, we're put you on our tour "pen pal" list to send you a postcard while we are on the road, we will dedicate a song to someone special at the show for you, and more!!

And, of course, we will practically GIVE you OUR MUSIC!  Every pledge gets a free mp3 download - sent your inbox within 24 hours.  For pledges $10 and up, the reward includes a "sneak peak" digital copy of our upcoming 2016 EP#1 "You Got a Reaction." 


We are REALLY excited to share this new music with you!

About the video

We shot this video in one afternoon in Kirk's living room in Philadelphia.  All the music in the video are songs we created. 

 

What we love most about the video: the fan clips!!   We are SO GRATEFUL to fans who made these clips! 

If you didn't get a chance to submit a fan video, you still can!  We will be posting regular updates about the campaign - including daily tour map updates (with video) - so you can still get in on the fun!
