Local Band Meets Kickstarter Goal

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

A couple of weeks ago, KULR-8 News covered some Billings resident's effort to get funding for their project via the internet fundraising web site Kickstarter. Nationally, there are several high-profile projects funded by people who use the site, from the Veronica Mars movie, to the Pebble smart watch.

One of the people in Billings trying to secure funds is Nick Miles and his band "No Cigar".

"I don't just want to be the little Billings, Montana band. I want the community to really get behind us...and push us out to a national level," said Nick, in an interview in late May. Nick and his band will now get their chance to pursue their dream. They hoped to raise $1,700 on Kickstarter, and wound up getting $1,800. The band crossed their fundraising goal just hours before their fundraiser deadline.

"We were probably about a hundred dollars away the night before, and checking it the morning of the very last day of Kickstarter, and it was there. It was like 'Yes! Success!'" said Chris Reeves, the band's guitarist.

"We knew there was no failing. We couldn't not get it. Even though the band's name is 'No Cigar', we didn't wanna have that cliche ending where we just almost reached the goal, you know?" said Nick.
