On Friday, March 10, Bozeman musician, Mathias, was en route to a gig in Philipsburg, MT when his Subaru caught fire. He thankfully had enough time to pull over and exit the vehicle before the flames spread and eventually engulfed the car. Aside from losing his only vehicle, he lost his Taylor Guitar, a Bose L1 Model II PA System, a couple microphones, stands, lighting gear, and a plethora of cables, tuners, capos, and more. Performing music has been his sole means of livelihood for over 7 years now.
"I would be immensely grateful for any help in getting my small business back up and running. To replace the minimum of what I lost it will cost around $4000. The Bose is over $2500 alone, a bottom end Taylor will run around $1000, and the price of a microphone, stands, and cables will add up quickly. As far as the car is concerned, my family is helping me out with at least a temporary solution, so I should be mobile in a couple of weeks. Thanks so much for your support and please share." – Mathias
