As many of you know, Josh Salestrom will be 40 in one month! He is also expecting a son to be born the same weekend! More than anything, I don't want this big birthday to go by unnoticed. Attempts at planning a great party have been thwarted as we're all adults now (questionable), and we all lead busy lives...not to mention, most of our friends have gigs every night of the week!
As long as I've been married to the guy, he's played the drums. In school and in the Army, Josh couldn't justify spending much on his "hobby", but now playing music has been a solid career for the past few years. He's wanted nothing more than a "Real" professional drum kit (i.e. Drum Workshop or a Gretsch Brooklyn) OR to restore a vintage kit (his Camco that's been stacked in our dining room since 2001). Being a family man, he'll never buy these things for himself!
So I'm creating this page for him. Donate easily here and help contribute to what could be the coolest birthday gift ever. Family, you're gonna send him a check anyway! Friends, if you planned on buying Josh a beer on the big day, put your 5 bucks here! It would mean even more coming from all of his friends, family, and brotherhood of musicians.
If we make the full $3k, that'll buy about any fantasy drumset Josh could hope for. If we make it to $500, he can restore his Camcos to their former glory. Either way, it's a win! So, contribute now to "Josh's Mid-Life Crisis Prevention Fund", share with anyone else who would like to help that I may not have access to...and keep it quiet, it's a SURPRISE!!!
