WE ANNOUNCE:

The John Lennon International Songwriting Contest

Again, with the honor!

So, those of you who've known us for a while know that back in 1998, we entered a brand-new songwriting contest created by Yoko Ono and some others, called the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest.  That year, there were about 24,000 entries, in 12 categories, and we won Grand Prize in the Gospel/Inspirational category, with our song "Lions."
It was a very nice honor, and that was that.

But there's more.
So, flash forward 16 years, and we decided to enter the contest one more time, given as how we're going to stop touring after December of this year.

So, we entered a brand-new song in the contest, which has become so crowded they now have two "Sessions," with 12 category winners each time.  Much to our surprise, we once again took the Gospel/Inspirational category with our newest song, "Rise Up," a social justice song, rooted in the sacraments.  (The link to our version of the song is at the bottom of this post.)
 
YOU VOTE:

Now we need your help to win Song of the Year.
So the next step is kind of like jousting.  Our song goes up against the winner from Session 2 in head to head combat, based on votes from people like you.  We're not sure what the end result is called, but assumedly it's something like the "Grand Grand Prize Winner," or the "Grandest Prize Winner," or some such thing.
You can click on any of banners in this e-mail to cast your vote.  Simply scroll down until you see our category in the bottom right-hand corner.  You can vote once each day for the entirety of the month of April, and we definitely appreciate your support as often as you're willing to stop by and vote for our song.
 
YOU WIN:
From the JLSC.com Folks:

Please also let your fans, family & friends know that they too have a shot at WINNING. The more each person votes the better chances they have of winning a brand new Epiphone Casino guitar! All they have to do is vote (each day if they like, for an increased chance of winning the guitar), and then enter their e-mail address into the prompt box after voting. One lucky voter will be shipped the Epiphone after the voting period!

A Band on a Bandwagon

We're usually not ones for jumping on the shopper-discount bandwagon, but when you're about to enter into your final year of touring, all them "usually" things are up for grabs, right?



Point being, if you were thinking you might want to take advantage of No Shipping Thursday, and ALSO get some Lost And Found stuff shipped to you for free, this is your THURSDAY.

Think of it as a throwback THURSDAY, to a time when there were no shipping costs.  (Which would be a time before there were people, come to think of it.)



So, if you were to go to our new store, located here http://lost-and-found-band.myshopify.com, and remember that today is THURSDAY, you might want to enter the name of that day (i.e. THURSDAY) in a spot that says, "Apply Discount Code."

[If you'd like to get stuff that isn't available at the new store, you can still do that at the old store, which is here https://www.speedwood.com/store.  However, you won't get the free shipping because in that universe it's still like Tuesday or something.]

Remember, this ain't no Rebecca Black song.  It's THURSDAY

Kickin' in the front seat
Sittin' in the back seat
Gotta make my mind up
Which seat can I take?

I'd take the one with free shipping, if I were you!

THURSDAY!

Off to get some stamps,

George

Farewell Tour: A Update

Happy fall, y'all:

As you can see from the map below, there are several states that will be completely passed over on the 2015 Lost And Found Farewell Tour.




So, if you were thinking you might want to book a concert in one of those states (or any of the others, for that matter), now is the time to call or write.

We've got about 12 open dates as of this writing.

You can e-mail us here.

Or call us at 419.897-9792.

Hope you're having a pumpkin spice of a fall, and that we'll see you at a concert sometime in the coming year!

George (and, Michael, by inference)

It's Time for the Final Back to Inventory School Labor Reduction Day Sale!

That's right!  We're having a sale to end all sales!


Or, more accurately, we're selling the final few of our most-popular T Shirts at super low prices.  PUN Shirts and others are priced at $10.  (A few even less-expensive shirts will be in our new Bargain Bin, but you have to come to the concerts to get those $5 specials.)


And once these shirts are gone, they're gone forever.

 

Click on the appropriate shirt to go to that item in our store.  But you best hurry along to get the size you want!

Speaking of exciting shirt news, be on the lookout for the 2015 Farewell Tour T Shirt next year.  There are still a handful of dates left for next year, but the MAP is filling up fast.  E-mail us if you're interested in hosting a concert, or inviting us to your event in 2015.


Plus, also, don't forget to register for one of the two Ministry Professionals Trips in Germany next year, happening in April and October of 2015.


More than anything though, please continue to rock on, as you are wont to do.  (And as we want you to do.)

We Have A Nouncement!

Hey y'all:

We have some important news.

If you'd like to know the important news, it will cost you 2 minutes and 6 seconds of your life to know the specifics.

And, as a famous American walled-in author might remind you, the cost of a thing is the life spent getting it.

Got a couple minutes?  Click on the Map Man below:

http://youtu.be/2gt_4lVD7IA


Essentially, we're embarking on a year-long Officially Authorized Farewell Tour, which will wrap up our touring career at the end of 2015.




If you've ever thought to yourself, "Self, some day I'd like to host a Lost And Found concert at my [church, house, school, country, etc]," well, tell your Self that that day is quickly approaching.



E-mail us today and let's get this Officially Authorized Farewell Tour rocking, shall we?

And, of course, we will still be running and performing at the Luther500 Festival through 2017 and beyond!

George and Michael
