Orlando's jazz stalwarts Leisure Chief got their vehicle broken into during a tour stop in Miami this week, and inevitably, a whole bunch of valuable musical gear was stolen.

Amongst the jaw-dropping list of items stolen from members Christian Ryan and Keegan Matthews were: Nord Electro D5 61-Key, Korg MS2000B, Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III Amp, Carbon Copy Delay Pedal, Moog MF Delay Minifooger Pedal, Rhythm Tech RT1030 Tambourine.

A GoFundMe is in place to help them replace what they can, as the Miami police have absolutely zero leads on who the thieves were. Leisure Chief are mainstays of the local show scene and this is an absolute shame; if you feel inclined to donate, please do.
