Geddyleegenes Posted August 31, 2017 Share Posted August 31, 2017 (edited) (Hope it's okay to post this.) A local Chicago band here, Mungion, is about to go out on their first headlining tour and they just had their van, trailer, every instrument and all their equipment stolen while playing a show in Detroit. They've figured that altogether, it was all worth about $41,500 total. A Go Fund Me page has been put up for them. So far they've raised about half of what they need. They're a pretty damn cool band playing "Funky Progressive Rock". (You can go on YouTube and check out their "Scary Blankets" album.) They're actually from my home town, Cary Illinois. I thought maybe some of the Ultra Cool Rush fans here might possibly be willing to help them out a bit. Here's what's written on the Go Fund Me - "Mungion Robbed-We Need Your Help" page: Last weekend, while on the road, we were staying out in Detroit, MI and woke up to find our van and trailer stolen along with all of our instruments, gear, lights and other valuable belongings. Although we are grateful that everyone is safe, our livelihood was taken from us in the blink of an eye. After going from door to door in the neighborhood we were able to track down some surveillance video that showed two men breaking in and stealing our van and trailer. Unfortunately, there was not much the authorities or anyone could do. After filing the police report and talking to neighbors we piled up in a hatchback and drove 6 hours to New York to play because the show must always go on! Our very first TOUR as a headlining band is coming up in the next week and we need your help to get us back on our feet. Everything that was taken from us is estimated at around $41,500 total. Now more than ever, we need the help from our Mung Family to pick us back up and make the force even stronger! Any donations will help, big or small. We promise to reciprocate all of the positive energy and love through each and every show we play. We are able to do what we love because of ALL of you and could not imagine going through this journey alone. WE thank you in advance for all of your help, love, and support. We know that something like this will only make us stronger. Love,Mungion ________________________________________________________ What was stolen? -2005 15 passenger Ford E-350- Dual axel 12x6 Trailer- Our entire lighting rig (6 R2s, cases and mounts)- Joe's nord, organ, leslie, moog, amp, pedals and cases-Matt's entire drum kit, stands, percussion, hardware and cases-Justin's amplifier, pedals and cases-Sean's amplifier and cases-Noah's sound board, speakers, monitors and cases-All of our microphones and cases-All of our merchandise (shirts, vinyl, hats, pins, cds, stickers ect.)-Trixie our mannequin-Various belongings and electronics that were in the van Help spread the word!
