Musicians On Call and Wrangler are hosting the Concert For Veterans Presented by Wrangler, a virtual concert for Veterans in all VA facilities nationwide for Veterans Day.
This week’s concert, featuring Wynonna, Peter Frampton, Darius Rucker, Sara Evans, Lainey Wilson, Michael Ray, Striking Matches, Jameson Rodgers, Caylee Hammack, Sarahbeth Taite, Catie Offerman and more, is being shared through MOC’s Virtual Bedside Performance Program. Hosted by Big Sky Music Group artist Stephanie Quayle from the Bluebird Cafe, the artists will offer songs of encouragement and messages of thanks to all Veterans for their service to our country.
“This year has been especially hard on hospitalized Veterans and their caregivers who have had to go without the regular support of their loved ones and volunteers in the hospital due to the pandemic. Musicians On Call’s live music programs have always meant a lot to our VA partners and, while we’ve missed visiting with the Veterans in person, we are glad to have remained connected during this hard time through our virtual programs,” says Musicians On Call President & CEO Pete Griffin. “We are grateful to Wrangler for partnering with us for a second year in a row to ensure the Veterans and staff in all VA facilities feel especially appreciated this Veterans Day through the joys of great music.”
“Wrangler is proud to team up with Musicians On Call to honor our nation’s Veterans by harnessing the power of music, a facet that the Wrangler brand has always channeled in our designs and collaborations throughout the years,” adds Holly Wheeler, vice president of global brand marketing at Wrangler. “We’re grateful that Musicians On Call has given us the opportunity to show our appreciation for servicemen and servicewomen this Veteran’s Day by providing a unique experience they’ll never forget.”
For over 20 years Musicians On Call has used music to promote and complement the healing process through programs like the Bedside Performance Program, Virtual Bedside Performance Program and Music Pharmacy. MOC’s Bedside Performance Program and Virtual Program have reached nearly one million people in healthcare facilities nationwide.
