Members of the New Breed Brass Band had their instruments and clothing stolen yesterday in Oregon at the beginning of a monthlong tour of the United States, according to a post on the group's Facebook page:
This morning, July 22nd, while on tour in Albany, OR, our vehicle was broken into in the parking lot of our hotel.
Our possessions were stolen, including our instruments and clothes.
We are currently in La Pine, OR seeking out any help we can get to be able to continue our 30 day tour, of which we have only completed 3 days.
If anyone has any information about the missing instruments please message the New Breed Brass Band or call the Albany Oregon Police Department on 541-917-7680.
