Details of Dispatch and the Ticket Luck value
Dispatch was an American folk band which formed at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vermont. They remained in function from 1996 to 2004. Dispatch played music of different genres and styles, making it difficult to label them in particular. These include reggae (Passerby, Ride a Tear), ska (Bats in the Belfry), folk (Craze, The General), rap (Just Like Larry, Here We Go) and rock (Even, Time Served).
The band was also active in the creation of the nonprofit organization The Elias Fund. Members included Brad Corrigan (vocals, drums, guitar, and percussion), Pete Heimbold (vocals, bass and guitar), and Chad Urmston (vocals, bass, guitar, and percussion).
The band initiated in the early 90s as One Fell Swoop, but soon renamed to Dispatch, after a disagreement with another band of the same name. They played versatile music such as acoustic folk-rock, reggae, and funk.
Dispatch, as word-of-mouth and file sharing g programs such as Napster and LimeWire, gained much appreciation outside of New England, without any help from a label. They released four studio albums and two live ones, as well as a live documentary of their 2001 tour, compiling over 600,000 in album sales. During concerts, the band was known to improvise upon their album releases, often resulting in a song running twice the length of the original and switched instruments and synchronized vocal while playing live.Before their break-up the band performed their final concert as a free show at the Hatch Shell in Boston on July 31, 2004. "The Last Dispatch," as it was referred, is said to be the largest concert in independent music history. Fans reportedly flocked from Italy, Portugal, South Africa, and Australia among others. The performance was released as a 2 CD and a DVD later, entitled All Points Bulletin, along with an earlier show in Somerville, Massachusetts.
Dispatch also released a documentary labeled as The Last Dispatch in July 2005, which records their final 12 days together as a band and discusses the biography of the band. The film was released on DVD September 26, 2006. Currently, Urmston is the front man of State Radio, while Corrigan and Heimbold are also successfully coming along well in their solo efforts.
On January 5th, 2007 the band announced a profit concert entitled "Dispatch: Zimbabwe" which will reunite the band on July 14th, 2007 at Madison Square Garden. Money raised from ticket sales will go straight to charities that are fighting disease, famine and social injustice in Zimbabwe; a portion will be billed to local charities that the band supports in the United States. The nonprofit organization the Elias Fund was formed after Chad Urmston wrote the song Elias which was based on his understanding about the life education in Zimbabwe. The Elias Fund provides anticipation to Zimbabwean youth through community development and education.
On December 22, 2005, Corrigan helped to organize a benefit concert, known as The Relief Project, at Irving Plaza in New York City. Corrigan invited Heimbold and State Radio Along with several other performers.
