While on the road preparing for the their first headlining tour, Chicago-based jam band Mungion had its entire van stolen in the West Village of Detroit, MI. Unfortunately, the van contained all of the band's gear, including instruments, lights, amps, monitors, merchandise, and more. Between the band and equipment, the band estimates a total loss of $41,500. A GoFundMe campaign has been launched in an effort to assist with this devastating loss.

See below for the band's official statement via Facebook.
Last weekend, while on the road, we were staying out in Detroit and woke up to find our van and trailer stolen with all of our gear, merchandise, lights, and other valuable belongings in them. Although we are grateful that everyone is safe, our livelihood was taken from us in the blink of an eye. After going from door to door in the neighborhood we were able to track down some surveillance video that showed two men breaking in and stealing our van and trailer. Unfortunately, there was not much the authorities or anyone could do. After filing the police report and talking to neighbors we piled up in a hatchback and drove 6 hours to New York to play because the show must always go on!
Our very first tour as a headlining band is coming up in the next week and we need your help to get us back on our feet. Everything that was taken from us is estimated at around $50,000 total. Now more than ever, we need the help from our Mung Family to pick us back up and make the force even stronger! Any donations will help, big or small. We promise to reciprocate all of the positive energy and love through each and every show we play. We are able to do what we love because of ALL of you and could not imagine going through this journey alone. WE thank you in advance for all of your help, love, and support. We know that something like this will only make us stronger.
