We're Steph & Mario-- Blue Cactus-- partners in life and music based in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. After eight years of collaboration, we made the decision in May of 2019 to put the music that brought us together at the forefront of our lives and pursue it as a full-time career. We knew this was a financial risk back then, but the income we were averaging with playing shows made it feel possible.

That all changed about a week ago when COVID-19 hit the US, and we saw our entire income disappear right before our eyes as gigs we had lined up during the slow winter season were cancelled or postponed indefinitely. It's become apparent that we cannot rely on shows to pay our mortgage, bills, buy groceries, etc. The way we made a living is now a public health risk.

But YOU have been there for us, and we can't express how grateful we are during this unprecedented time of uncertainty. The increase in merch orders from our web store over the past few days has filled us with hope. YOU have given us the extra determination to figure out how to do the thing we love most- making music for you- while socially distancing ourselves.

For less than the cost of a Big Mac Meal, you can become our patron and continue to support our ability to be able to create music for a living.With no shows on the horizon, and self-quarantining in our house, we look forward to creating more new music than ever and can't wait to share it with you here along with other exclusive content and rewards, available only to our Patreon Family.
