Okay folks, here’s the facts. We are almost there reaching our fundraising goal, but only got nine (9) days left until we need the money in the bank. Otherwise the financial burden will ultimately crush my efforts to keep the site alive.

As of today 110 people from the U.S., Canada, Germany, Australia, Netherlands, Great Britain, Switzerland, Austria, New Zealand, Poland, Czech Republic, France, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Spain have donated a total amount of 3400 Euro. The highest single donations were 250 Euro from Norway, 200 USD from Canada and 157 Euro from Germany.

If every visitor of BandsOnFire would donate, then the fundraising goal of 5000 Euro could easily be met, so the question still is: Do you want to keep BandsOnFire alive? If you don’t donate, this website will die, it’s as simple as that. So the future of BandsOnFire.com still lies in your hands.

BandsOnFire.com has always been about and for you, so we can only do this together. Without your support it simply won’t be possible to continue to serve you in the future!

As already written on June 26, I’ve been working on the relaunch of the site with our new webmaster in the meantime, and we’ll keep our promise: “You can be sure that the new site will bring everything to the next level in terms of usability, design, and everything else that we all find important regarding our personal favorite music.”

So technically BandsOnFire.com can and will survive – but only IF we will reach the fundraising goal.



Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
