An Open Letter of Profound Gratitude
Brass Bed has always been fortunate. Individually, we’ve grown up in warm families that have supported us sacrificially in our efforts to follow a dream, a lifelong gift that is greater than any sum of money or measure of fame. We’re a group of guys who have not been want for anything, and frankly never thought things could get any peachier. Let’s just say we’ve been humbled.
Being robbed is no fun, but it is no tragedy. When we found our van window smashed and half our equipment gone, we were scared, sad, and angry to be sure, but we were not in danger of poverty, illness, or loss of life. Like anyone who has their livelihood threatened and their possessions taken, we just wanted our stuff back so we could keep on with our lives. Via the miracle of modern social networks, we spread the word of an itemized list of missing gear in hopes of recovering what was lost. The response we received was staggering and beyond anything we could have ever expected.
While we’ve not found the stolen equipment, through donations by friends, family, fans, and aid by Chicago Music Exchange, and Fender/Gretsch Guitars, we’ve replaced nearly everything lost. My friends, this is a miracle not of modern technology, but of human love and compassion. In the past 36 hours, the wave of generosity we’ve received from you has nearly drowned us. It’s given us more than just our gear back. It’s given us a renewed faith in the basic goodness of people around the country, a renewed fervor to continue our craft, and a desire to do good for others.
Losing your guitar is material. Even at the lowest emotional point of this event, we were still a lucky bunch of guys. We had our health, our families, each other, and even few guitar amps left. We want you to know that the relative insignificance of our loss is not itself lost on us; even if we didn’t recover or replace that equipment we’d still be a lucky bunch of guys. But most importantly, we want you to know that thanks to you we’re doing better than ever. We have been sincerely humbled by the love that has been graciously given to us. This is a gift that is an embarrassment of riches, a blessing that gives us tears of joy and hope for the future. Ultimately, this is a gift that is love in its purest form, and proof that we were even more fortunate than we ever thought possible.
Much love to you all,
Christiaan, Jonny, Peter, Ben

Just like before, we only have 80 tickets available for the second night, so please buy them ahead of time via PayPal!!!
