Transmission Woes Cancel Friday Show, But Saturday Shows Still On
Fri., Oct. 19. 2012 11:39pm EDT
The transmission in our bus bit the dust in Dayton OH today, canceling our show in Urbana IL. We tried to get a used transmission, but our 1996 bus needs year-specific parts, and 20 surrounding junkyards didn't have one. We're getting a reconditioned one installed for $3500, but it won't be done till Monday afternoon.
The repair shop owners graciously lent us their mini-bus to drive to Green Bay, so we can do the concerts there tomorrow, but we had to leave the bus and trailer in Dayton with them.
