Band Together for Veterans
Band Together is a charity event organized by local musicians Charlie Wuth and John Fernandez in conjunction with production services by the Jersey Shore Jazz & Blues Foundation. The purpose is to generate some much-needed funding for local programs that provide treatment for combat related PTSD, services to the veteran homeless, and suicide prevention.
This event also brings veterans friends and families to enjoy a day of great music performances. Each year we bring some of the best local, regional and national musicians together.
We thank them for donating their time and incredible talent to this worthy cause.
The first Band Together for Veterans took place in 2016 organized by Matt D’esposito, John Fernandez and Charlie Wuth.
It was such a success that we decided to do it every year.
We are doing something special this year. Each band performing on the Front Stage includes at least one Veteran as a member.
We are also drawing attention to the overlooked female veterans that serve our country. They do not get the recognition and appreciation they deserve. Two of the groups contain a female veteran.
