Dare likes to play any place where people want to hear him—living rooms, stadiums, art galleries, derelict strip malls, glitzy music venues filled with trend-setting starlets, fire-gutted churches with free enchiladas. Write STS Booking, and together we will find a way:

You Kicked Me!


Holy smokes!  You guys are the best.

Not only did we meet our $5,000 goal in our Kickstarter campaign, but we went way over, raising more than $6,200!

Thanks so much, you angels, you.  We promise to make sure our record is worthy of your ears.

Kick Me: Pre-order My New Record


Okay, gang. I’ve launched my very first Kickstarter campaign to make sure my new record, Thugs and China Dolls, makes it out of the studio and into your ears.

Don’t know what Kickstarter is?  Well, is a cool website that allows artists and other imaginative people to raise critical funding to make sure their neat ideas make it out into the world.

I’m aiming to raise $5,000 (a small portion of my overall budget) by selling pre-ordered copies of Thugs and China Dolls. There’s all kinds of other cool stuff you can buy, too (a pair of Jim White’s loafers, anyone?), but pre-orders of the record are the main thing.  So check out my video, then click through the link and order your copy today!
