Here’s How You Could Win Pete Wentz’s Bass From Fall Out Boy’s ‘Dance Dance’ Video

The Academy Is... bassist Adam T. Siska is giving it away for an important cause. 

Adam T. Siska from The Academy Is... is giving fans the chance to win Pete Wentz's bass from the Fall Out Boy 'Dance Dance' video.

"As some of you may know, members of my family lost their homes when Hurricane’s Irma and Maria hit the Virgin Islands in September," he explained.

"Through GoFundMe I was able to raise some money to help purchase building materials to rebuild. Unfortunately we did not reach our fundraising goal, so I am here to make a final plea for help on behalf of my family."

"I am offering up my Fender P-Bass that I played on stage with TAI from 2006-2010. The bass was a gift from Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz while TAI was touring with them in the UK in the spring of 2006."

"You can see the bass featured in their video for the song 'Dance Dance' as well as in the TAI video for 'The Phrase that Pays.'"

"I considered auctioning the bass, but I would rather it go to so who maybe can’t afford it, or perhaps as a Christmas gift to someone who would love it."

"With ANY donation to our GoFundMe, you will have a chance to win this piece of EMO history. I will also be sending out some band merch from TAI’s storage to donors as well."

"Please share this and help me on my final quest to put my family back in their homes!"
