We Got Our Van!!

As most of you know, we crashed our trusty van about a month ago, just before we left for a two and a half week US tour with our friends Roger Miret and the Disasters, which was a great experience by the way. Losing our van, which was “fixed” but is still undriveable after getting it back from the shop, was a pretty big deal for us. For many years it was our home away from home and we relied on it heavily. We put over 380,000 miles on it. It’s been with us through thick and thin and we miss it. When we lost the van, we looked to you, our friends and fans, to help us get through something pretty critical in our career. We were suddenly faced with not having the number one instrument to us doing our jobs. It was a bit scary. But you guys pulled through for us and were generous beyond words and we were able to get back on our feet and the road in no time.

FLATFOOT 56 TOUR VAN FUND. We crashed our van. We need your help!

We’re very sad to say that after 11 years of touring, over 1,000 live concerts and half a million road miles, our trusty van/home has finally seen its last day.

Just yesterday, our drummer Justin had a mishap with the van a concrete pole in a parking lot. The concrete pole won, taking the life of our tour vehicle, our home for the last 11 years. Justin is just fine and didn’t get hurt, but the loss of our van (and for 225 days a year – our home) is like losing a bandmate or a close family member. And it couldn’t happen at a more inopportune time for us, as we’re preparing for a road trip to Canada next week and a month long tour with Roger Miret and the Disasters along the south and west coast right afterwards. We’ve managed to borrow a van from our church that will get us through 6 days in Canada, but we need to get a new tour vehicle ASAP before heading out again. Unfortunately, like with most things in this day and age, our van is worth far less than what we still owe on it (it has 280,000 miles). We’re fairly certain that the insurance company will only cover a small portion of our outstanding balance with the bank. And on top of that, we’ve got no choice but to buy a new vehicle.

We’re not asking for charity, but we are asking for help. If Flatfoot 56 has impacted your life in any way, if our music has reached you and you feel that you can give back to us – even if only $1 – then please consider making a donation to the FLATFOOT 56 VAN FUND (via paypal – orders@flatfoot56.com).
