Guitars for Vets
Saturday, August 13
Featuring the best of local and regional music groups, Guitar Cabaret Night will include performances from military veterans who have completed the 10-week Guitars for Vets educational program. At the end of the program each vet is awarded a free Yamaha acoustic guitar and accessories, and invited to continue playing guitar with her or his chapter.
Guitars For Vets (http://guitarsforvets.org/), is a national 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to provide a guitar instruction program and the proven healing power of music to veterans struggling with physical injuries, PTSD, and other emotional distress. Chapters operate primarily through the Department of Veterans Affairs facilities. Chapter #74 is based at the VA New Jersey Health Care System in East Orange.
“This wonderful night of live music will celebrate the great strides that our veterans make through our guitar lessons,” said Dan Zurich, Guitars for Vets Chapter Coordinator.
Suggested donation at the door will be $10. Active duty military, vets, and performing bands will be admitted free.
