Crowdfunding is a 21st century mix of patronage/cyber-busking. You post a project that needs funding and people can basically donate money to help you. It's pretty simple. I've set up a project at Rockethub.com(http://www.rockethub.com/projects/845-pride-and-joy-promotional-tour). As of this writing, I have one person who has donated! I figure, hey, it's worth a shot. But in all seriousness, I've dreamed of getting this band off the ground for a long time. Maybe this might be our chance.
So no pressure of course, but remember, as a wiseman once said: The Greatest Nation is A Small Do-nation!
