ZZ Top’s Billy gibbons joins the “unity for vets” concert
featuring bret michaels with ellis hall, the unity all-star band plus special guests!
NEW YORK, New York (October 27, 2011). HonorVet.org announced today that ZZ Top Guitarist and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, Billy Gibbons, will join rock star performer and “Celebrity Apprentice” winner Bret Michaels and his “Get Your Rock On Tour” with the All-Star line-up that includes Ellis Hall and other special Celebrity guests for the “Unity for Vets” concert on Veterans Day at New York’s NYCB Theatre at Westbury, November 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.
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.
HonorVet.org is a national 501(c) (3) which was co-founded by two US Marines, Jesse Canella and Jim McCain, who served together in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. Like so many other of America's returning young Veterans, they found the transition back to civilian life to be very difficult. More profoundly, they saw friends who made it through the toughest battle zones succumb to this hidden battle at home. They decided to continue to serve by committing to do something about it
To be produced at the NYCB Theatre at Westbury, Unity For Vets will feature a combination of musicians, celebrities and veterans in a program mixing music and highlighting both the challenges and triumphs of real Veterans. The experience will be complemented and expanded online with activities and social media campaigns including celebrities and high profile artists.
The theme and message of Unity For Vets will be both sober - focusing a spotlight on the issues and needs of America's Veterans in transitioning to civilian life - and inspirational - giving average Americans a way to help not only with money but with their own time and spirit.
During the course of the event a short ceremony will be produced by multi-Emmy Award-winner LeGrande Green (Oprah) featuring Dr. Brenda Wade (Oprah, The Today Show, CNN, Good Morning
