One of Orange County's most iconic bands needs your help preserving their legacy on film. And despite what legendary frontman and punk rock prankster Mike "Gabby" Gaborno may tell you, it's not some kind of weird porno starring members of the Cadillac Tramps. Although the new documentary about Gaborno and his band is being made with lots of lovin'.
The Cadillac Tramps: Life on the Edge, is the story of one of the most belovedly strange bands to ever come out of our local music scene. Over the next seven days, Director Jamie Sims Coakley and husband Brian Coakley (rhythm guitarist for the band) are wrapping up their Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project which requires almost $55,000 dollars to complete. The film is currenty in post production. The deadline to fund the project is October 7 at 6 p.m. To date, they've raised just about half of their goal and are in need of your help. At this point the Coakley's have financed the film entirely on their own. As long as they're able to fully fund their goal they will get the money, if they don't they get nothing. That means if you 've been fortunate enough to have Gaborno and the Tramps on stage at some point in your life, you need to get on this and start spending and spreading the word.More »
