Ivan & Alyosha Launch PledgeMusic Campaign to Replace Stolen Tour Gear
Folk-pop band Ivan & Alyosha had a dramatic setback in their ongoing tour last week when their van and trailer, both full of the band’s touring gear and equipment, were stolen after a concert in Atlanta. Though the van has since been found, the trailer full of musical instruments and equipment has not been recovered.
In an attempt to replace the stolen gear, the band has set up a PledgeMusic Campaign which allows fans the opportunity to pledge money in exchange for cool gifts and opportunities from the band.
“It was unfortunate that our van and trailer were stolen in Atlanta, Ga,” lead singer Tim Wilson said in a press release. “On the bright side, we’ve been pretty overwhelmed by all the love and support from everyone in the past couple of days. We’re trying to turn a really crappy situation into something positive, and we’re grateful for all of the support.”
Despite their bad luck, the group has decided to continue touring in support of their recent album All the Times We Had and has even announced additional tour dates.
