The IVAW State of the Union Base Tour Update/reviewBelow is the MySpace Player, ripped from MySpace, there's a good chance that in the near future it will disappear, if it does, just check em' out at http://www.myspace.com/rebelincmusic
Rebel inc. just finished our first tour which took us to 4 different stops in 2 weeks. The band joined forces with a group called the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW). The group's message is clear, "you are not alone". The tour was designed to create outreach for vets as well as providing vets and active duty soldier's free entertainment. The tour was a success right from the start upon forming 2 new chapters of the IVAW in sought out cities.
The first stop was Fayetteville, NC (Fort Bragg) on August 6th. August 8th took us to Jacksonville, NC (Camp Legeune) where the Marines were thoroughly entertained. Then the tour moved to Savannah, GA (Fort Stewart) August 10th, where civilians, vets, and politicians enjoyed a hard hitting show with Lastman as the opener. From there we moved on to Austin, TX (Fort Hood) where we played a very unique venue, Ruta Maya. The crowd was very receptive to the show and the message and was a great setting for the closing of the tour.
Along with great entertainment for the troops, there was a big buzz about what rebel inc. and the IVAW were doing. A lot of press coverage was given to both parties along the way. Here are a few excerpts of what was written about this recent adventure. The rest of the articles and more information about the IVAW can be found at http://ivaw.org/
