Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds’ Gear Stolen Following Show

Early in the morning on November 23, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds’ van was broken into and $11,000 worth of instruments were stolen from the New York City group. Among the items stolen were several guitars, a saxophone and several other equipment pieces to accompany those items. The band was forced to cancel their show in Westminister, MD on Saturday night due to the incident. They posted an announcement to Facebook that the cancellation was due to the theft.

To help out, you can download a one page pdf that lists all of the stolen equipment to share via social media or to post around town. All of the info can be found on Sister Sparrow’s website.

Here is an exclusive statement from the band:

The value of these instruments, as far as dollars go, is nothing compared to value we, personally, put on them.

A message to all thieves out there: Leave our instruments alone! C’mon. We’re just trying to make music and make people happy. Thank you so much for your help! Go to if you want anymore details. You can see photos of all the instruments that were stolen if you want to help in any way.
