Our Volunteers

We're an all-volunteer organization. We're so grateful to all who give their time, talent, and treasure to honor and serve the military community. Here's why people have concert volunteer group.

  • I think that it is a great way to honor the service of all the men and women currently serving as well as those who have served in the past, including many who have lost their lives. I feel like honoring their sacrifice is a great way to encourage those they have left behind.

  • We are a military family and very proud of it. My husband is a retired SGM from the National Guard and I have two daughters presently serving. One is a CPT in the Air Force and the other is a 2nd LT in the Army flying Blackhawks. This is a wonderful way to give back and show my appreciation for their service!

    L.E.
  • This event came to my attention at the recommendation of a friend who has participated in this in years past. I thought it would be a fantastic way to get more involved in music and to give back to the community, especially former military members and their families.

    A.B.
  • My two daughters and I are involved; this is our third time for participating in the event. I believe in showing the veterans and those presently in the military what it means to us for them to give of their time and this is one way to show my appreciation.

    J.B.
  • My husband is in the Army National Guard as well as several others I've known. I have profound respect for what veterans and soldiers have done for our country.

    K.J.
  • I am blessed to serve 30 years in law enforcement, have family members who are active duty service and several family members who are retired service. God has given me a special gift of music and it is with gratitude and humility that I share this gift with others. I am honored to serve God and those who have given their all to keep us free and safe, those currently serving locally and across the globe.
