About

Street Dive - The Sound Of Homeless Auckland

Project 2016-04-02 07:39:57 +1300

Some of the regulars who eat at and sleep around/frequent the Auckland City Mission have our hearts set on putting together a band.

64 year old 'Tidal Dave' is amazing on the 12 string guitar, 'Cous-If' on the drums, myself adding keyboard synthesized sounds to the mix, and the vocal and lyrical talents of the other regulars are the cherry on top for our little project.

Funds raised from our performances will go toward the cost of living, paying to get laundry done, breakfast and lunches (dinner already supplied by ACM), doctors appts, public transport and other misc costs.

What we really need help with is raising the funds to actually buy the instruments needed to get ourselves started, as well as the amps and other basic tech we'll need to draw attention to our band.

Once we have established ourselves and hauled ourselves out of the situation we're in, we hope to help others in the same plight to get involved with similar initiatives in New Zealand's other centers. 

Any help would be most appreciated, more than words can express. We just need help with the start up gear, then we hope to be able to take it from there. Every cent helps and could be the difference between success and failure for us. This is our dream. This is what is keeping us motivated.
