We Welcome Non Profit Organization ConcertsForTroops.org, Inc.
ConcertsForTroops.org, Inc. Details: ConcertsForTroops.org, Inc., a non-profit organization, produces morale-boosting professional live music for U.S. troops and their families. It all started at Walter Reed Army Medical Center’s (WRAMC) Family Fall Festival in October 2007. This inspiring event was one of the primary catalysts for the creation of ConcertsForTroops.Org and we’ve found the morale boosting and inspiration to be a two-way street. “There’s seriously wounded troops here that are missing limbs who amazingly and selflessly just want to get back with their combat units in Iraq or Afghanistan, and they’re giving us a great, great feeling with such a great response, it’s just amazing”, said Founder and Music Director Bobby ‘Blue’ Perry, who also serves as the bandleader and guitarist of the houserockin’ band Blues Unchained. Blues Unchained has donated profits from their bands t-shirts sales to help raise funds, and singer Eddie Crowe adds, “the feeling you get playing for the troops is incredible, I’ll play for them anytime, anywhere”. The Washington Redskins, the University of Maryland’s Athletic Department, The Baltimore Sports Museums (Babe Ruth Museum, Sports Legends Museums), ESPN Sportscaster Scott Van Pelt, Fox Sports Radio, Blues Unchained, and others came together to contribute donated t-shirts, souvenirs, autographed banners and more that was distributed to the troops at the concert.
