HonorVet.org announced today that Bret Michaels and his Get Your Rock on Tour have joined the star-studded Unity for Vets concert on Veterans Day at New York's NYCB Theatre at Westbury Nov. 11th.
Produced in partnership with financially transparent rock philanthropy Unityfor.org, the concert will be honoring and supporting America's veterans and current service members as they raise awareness and funds to finance their dedicated support community for vets. "Bret Michaels has been a lifelong veteran supporter and is the perfect artist to be a part of this concert; he is a true patriot" said Jesse Canella, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of HonorVet.org. "We are so excited to be able to co-produce the Unity for Vets concert in order to pay tribute to all those who have served and to get the public excited and involved."
Proceeds from the concert, leveraging UnityFor.org's ultra-low-cost production costs, will be transparently dedicated to HonorVet.org which will directly finance crucial resources and services instantly available to qualified Veterans, service members, and their families, without the usual red tape.
Performers will supported by the Unity All Star Band, comprised of industry pros such as: Anton Fig on Drums (Letterman Band), Reggie McBride on Bass (Stevie Wonder, Keb Mo), Ellis Hall "The Reverend" on keyboards (Tower of Power), Scott Page on Sax (Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Toto), and music director Martin Guigui on Piano/Hammond B-3 (John Lee Hooker, James Cotton).
