Regardless of your stance on any particular war, one can't deny that those who work in the military come into contact with horrific situations. While many men and woman die in the service, we must not forget those who have endured and survived. Especially those who have survived at the cost of injury.
Bands for Brothers in Arms is an annual fundraiser to raise money for Wounded Warriors (woundedwarriors.ca). This is an organization who's primary focus is on mental health and, particularly, the staggering impact of PTSD, perpetrated by Operational Stress Injuries. Overall, however, their mandate is to help any Veteran in need as they transition to civilian life.
The show and fundraiser will take place on Fri Aug 23rd, Sat Aug 24th and Sun Aug 25th in Oshawa at Simcoe's Blues & Jazz (926 Simcoe Street North). My band and I will be playing a set as part of this fundraiser on Sun Aug 25th late afternoon. For more information, please visit http://www.bandsforbrothersinarms.org
Tickets are $10 at the door and are also available at http://bandsforbrothersinarms.eventbrite.ca
Due to the unavailability of bassist Deb Ray, we welcome back Frank Heisler on Bass who has been a past member of Wilton Said… and appears on the recording of Half Life.
Hope you can make it out to support the cause.
