Help Matthew & Me to Buy a New Van

Please help to support Matthew & Me in buying a safe and reliable van so they can continue to play music in and around the UK for the next 60 years...

For the past year we have been getting around from gig to gig and from festival to festival in our (not so trusty) van, Martha. Unfortunately the quantity of gear we have, the amount of gigs we do and the number of miles we cover in poor old Martha has led to her unfortunate demise.
The number of 1am calls to the AA is beginning to get a bit silly. The band van is completely intrinsic to our career and the concept of being without a van leads to slightly problematic scenarios.
The dream is that we can buy a decent and reliable vehicle that fits between 7-10 people and can also fit all of our drums, keyboards, amps, guitars and sleeping bags. MMx

A massive thank you to all who have funded so far!

We are so grateful to those who have pledged their support thus far. It's incredible and we are blown away by how many people have responded. We hope that come the end of October we will be able to organise a new (and safe) van pronto and be back on the road doing more shows than ever before! Unless the target of £5,000 is reached all pledges will be cancelled :( so all fingers and toes crossed and please do spread the word far and wide about our mission! This also means that until we hit the target we can't start sending out/organising the various rewards. Having said that, we are starting to plan our Christmas bespoke show and we have a few songs to write as well! Love MMx
