Last Saturday Sound Off for Vets (a site sub-hosted on Cygnus Wave) throw their annual free benefit concert to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and raised $900 for that great cause. Due to the donated efforts of many volunteers, local business sponsors, and performing musicians, the show was once again a success.
The event took place on City Island in Harrisburg, PA and the four hour show consisted of sets by Pennsylvania artists Chris Nelson, Rhyne McCormick, Michael Anthony Smith and the Dirty Thieving Gypsies, and Shift Seven. Nelson, the benefit’s organizer, claimed this to be the best show since Sound Off began in 2010;
These folks came out and played free of charge in order to help us get the word out about our wounded service men and women…”
THe show was videotaped in its entirity and there are discussions about possible DVDs for sale to raise further funds for the cause. On this Memorial Day weekend, it is essential that we all remember and give appreciation to those who put it all on the line in defense of our country, our citizens, and our freedom.
