Ivan & Alyosha & The Stolen Gear

Folk–rock ensemble Ivan & Alyosha’s tour struck a sour note recently when the band’s van and a trailer full of gear were stolen in Atlanta, Ga.

While the van was eventually recovered, the band noted in a statement on its website that “there have been no signs of our trailer or gear since.”

The missing gear is a lengthy list and includes a number of Gibson, Epiphone, Telecaster and Rickenbacker guitars; amps; pedals; C&C Drums; Instanbul Agop cymbals; tambourines; maracas; samplers; and in–ear monitors.

Despite the setback, Ivan & Alyosha plans to motor on with a little help from some friends as well as a Pledge Music campaign.

“It’s been a rough week, but we’re very grateful for the outpouring of love and support from friends and fans since this happened,” the band said. “We’re in much better spirits now and it’s been because of all of you! You guys have been so good to us and we appreciate all of your offers to help us out.

“We’ve received some help so far in the form of donations from Amazon and Rhapsody, and were able to order some new pedals, cables, etc.”

Rhapsody donated $10,000 and Amazon contributed $5,000.

Noisetrade.com is offering a tip/donation-based download of the group’s 2013 album, All The Times We Had, starting June 18.

Dualtone Music Group is donating 100 percent of net proceeds from digital and physical sales to the band during the week of June 24 through July 1.

Fans can also help the band purchase new gear through donations to Ivan & Alyosha’s Pledge Music page, and in exchange score gifts that range from a postcard from the road to a phone call, VIP concert experience or honorary membership in the band.
