For Austin Moody and his band, a trip to San Antonio for a show, turned into a modern day nightmare.
The Nashville-based musicians became the target of thieves who stole three guitars and other music equipment right out of their trailer in San Antonio, Texas. Everything together totaled to more than $15,000, but Moody says they aren't worried about the money.
Many of the items stolen have sentimental value to the band. Moody explained to San Antonio's Channel 4 News that he has played a lot of shows with the guitars, and "wanted to hand them down to [his] own kids".
Moody shared a list of the items stolen, and how to reach him if you know anything about the crime. See his Facebook post below.
His caption reads:
Hey guys last night someone broke in the trailer in San Antonio, Texas and stole $15,000+ worth of gear including my guitars a Martin D-41 & a Taylor 814 cutaway, Scotts fender telecaster, a silver sparkle Ludwig kick drum, our DL 32 Mackie wireless soundboard, wireless router, mbox pro and a K8 QSC monitor. My acoustics were in military SKB cases. Please share this post with any musicians especially in the Texas and San Antonio area. Things can be replaced but those guitars have sentimental value. Praying that our guitars and equipment turns up! Please help spread the word! Here are some pictures below of what we lost.
