The San Diego band lost almost every piece of equipment to its name at about 9:30 a.m. July 17 when somebody stole its U-Haul trailer from the parking lot of the Fairfield Inn in Albuquerque, N.M.

A witness saw three males in a white 1970s-model truck hook up and drive off with the trailer, but was unable to get a license plate number. The U-Haul was eventually found abandoned and cleaned out early the following morning.

The band has issued a list of the stolen equipment and other items, including merchandise, that was taken and asks anyone with information to call the band’s management company at (415) 642-1117. They’ll take anonymous tips.

The missing equipment includes percussion instruments, speakers, cases, electronic equipment and parts, amps, keyboards, sound equipment, woodwind instruments, recording equipment, microphones and merchandise, including shirts and CDs.

According to Kurland, many of the missing items are either discontinued, unique, vintage or hard to find. He believes they may turn up at pawn shops, musical instrument stores, swap meets, on eBay and garage sales, and asks that people to be on the lookout.

Robert Walter’s 20th Congress is offering a reward for useful information. A full list of the missing equipment and details about the theft and how to report information can be found at the band’s Web site.

Meanwhile, Greyboy Allstars founding member Robert Walter and his 20th Congress will persevere. The band is carrying on with borrowed equipment and hasn’t canceled any tour dates.
