WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT
Provost Prendergast was tired of us singing in Front Square, and the Gardaí wanted us off Grafton Street so they exiled us to Botany Bay. We misunderstood. We’ve heard a lot about Australia - goon, cobbers & coldies. We want to experience it all. Poor little Barra has always dreamed of petting a kangaroo. Surely you want to let Barra get punched by a kangaroo?
In all seriousness Trinitones are about to embark on an epic journey, to a land where no Irishman has ever gone before.......
We are working all year and throughout summer to make sure we get to Oz, but we need your help! After we played host to Trinity College Melbournes TigerTones, we have been formally invited to perform there and travel Australia. We are touring Melbourne to Sydney, while spreading our own style of unorthodox a cappella throughout the country. We can not do it without your help. We are applying to Fund it to assist with travel costs and tour logistics. We already have several performances lined up in Sydney and Melbourne but we are looking forward to hearing from you about future gigs.
A BUNCH OF COBBERS
In case our renown is unbeknownst to you, Trinitones have performed at major venues including Aviva Stadium, Croke Park, The Mansion House, The Shelbourne Hotel, and are considered festival regulars at Electric Picnic and Trinity Ball. As performers, mind you. Our corporate clients have included Google, Cadbury, Teeling, and Boodles.
With an ever-changing lineup and a diverse repertoire that spans genres from the Baroque to the Beyoncé, Trinitones continues to promote high quality a cappella music with an energetic and engaging live show that is not to be missed. Seriously, come to our gigs.
THE KANGAROO IN THE ROOM
The Ozzie equivalent to the proverbial Elephant.
18 Trinitones are travelling. That is more than the entire group of girls in Madeline, and we are nowhere near as cute. Cost of travel is huge - flights are €1100 return. While we are seeking every grant, disbursement and earning opportunity available, we want to be able to say that even in the smallest way possible, our fans made it possible.
Name assigned to female bovine creatures "downundah". Cow + Sheila = Moolah.
Just joking. It's just money. Here's how our funding goal breaks down:
We've got 18 opportunities for a €500 flight contribution. That's €9000 total. Everything else provides hostel accommodation and transport costs while we're in Australia. We are all willing to "slum it". Except for Neil.
As students, we live off a diet of toast, eggs, coffee and the deep despair of the shrinking job market. When we decided to go to Australia, everyone laughed. But, we're Ireland's most successful a cappella group, with over 150,000 views on our YouTube channel, and exposure in more than 125 countries. Yet, we have only visited three. Including Ireland. This has gotta change.
Thanks in advance, we can't do it without your support.
