BEEBS AND HER MONEY MAKERS

Warped Tour Funding Project

Help a fully independent band launch to the next level!

Hi! We are Beebs and Her Money Makers: a "jiggly pop comic rock" band of superheroes from Orlando, Florida. We've been relentlessly sharing our positivity throughout Florida and the east coast for nearly 4 years now. Last year, by the grace of the universe, Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman discovered us at the Florida Music Festival (FMF). And by the grace of Kevin Lyman we were invited to join this year's Vans Warped Tour. The only catch is, it's costing us a total of $68,000. We've locked down the initial $45k, we just need the final push of $23k more to pull it off! So we're reaching out to our fans and the rest of the social universe for help.

Playing Warped Tour means massive national exposure for our music. It's a stepping stone from being a regional band to a national one. This is something we've tirelessly worked for, and finally have it in our midst.

Unlike most bands at this stage in the game, we have managed to stay completely independent. Our management, booking, publishing, and creative direction is %100 run by the members of this band. We are firmly rooted in maintaning our independence from the majors and proving that the future business model of the music industry is DIY, grass roots and most importantly creative marketing and music. Individually we can achieve a lot, but together we can achieve it all!

WHERE'S THE MONEY GOING???

We feel it's important for you to see exactly where this money is going. We're not looking to get rich off of you, we just want to be able to enjoy this amazing opportunity in front of us.

In total, we need $60k in expenses for Warped Tour. Warped Tour is paying us $20k, and we've secured another $20k through a sponsorship with Ripley's Believe it or Not (believe it). So we are left with the remaining balance of $20k to earn by May 10th.


In the interest of total transpareny, our expenses are as follows:

EXPENSES:

GAS........................................$6000
VEHICLE..................................$12000
VEHICLE WRAP.........................$5000
WARPED TOUR INSURANCE.......$2000
CDS MANUFACTURING..............$10000

TOTAL:                                  $68,000


ALREADY HAVE                    $45,000

NEED:                                  $23,000

*If we are not able to meet our goal, sacrifices will be made on DRUMS/CASES, COPYRIGHT, TOUR MANAGER, and the MERCH TENT.
