PHOENIX (KSAZ) - A valley band is making news, not for what they did on stage, but rather for the good deed they did off the stage.

The Black Moods hit the road on tour and during a stop at a gas station they found a wallet filled with cash.

It took some investigating, but they found the woman who lost it, 250 miles away.

The woman was on a road trip from Seattle to Austin with her young child. When she stopped to get gas in Tyler Texas. She left her wallet on top of the pump.

When she finally realized it she never thought she'd get it back, but a band from Tempe found out and made sure it got back to it's rightful owner.

Tempe-based band "The Black Moods" is on tour throughout Texas this month. They made an early morning stop at a gas station in Tyler, Texas when they found a woman's wallet filled with cash and credit cards.

"It was like a challenge for us, like "let's get this lady her goods back you know," said Josh Kennedy.

Lead singer Josh Kennedy and his band mates documented the find and the search for the owner, they made a video of their efforts and used Facebook to find her. They sent her messages and met up with her father in Austin, Texas.

"You guys, you have no idea how deeply I appreciate this," said the woman's father on the video.

He was surprised to say the least.

"That is so awesome, I literally before I contacted you guys spent the last 2 hours on the phone with her just crying hysterically, I told her to stop, we'll figure it out," he said.

The Black Moods never thought about keeping the cash, Josh said it's all about doing the right thing.

"Money's tight, but we're firm believers in karma, so the last thing we need when we're out on the road is bad vibes coming our way," said Kennedy.

"That's just karma, that's straight karma, yeah kids, you always do the right thing, and don't do drugs," said the band on their video.

The woman and her family are new fans of The Black Moods. The band members say it was actually fun using social media to track down the owner. They hope this is a good lesson for everyone to do the right thing.
