Iowa Rock ‘n Roll Music Association, Veteran’s Freedom Center, and Diamond Jo Casino are working together to give back this Veterans Day by producing "Hail to the Heroes" from 6 pm – 12 am on November 10th at Diamond Jo Casino’s Mississippi Moon Bar. $10 suggested donation at the door. All military and Veterans are free. Sponsored by Graham Construction, "Hail to the Hereos" will feature music by Six Shots 'til Midnight, A Few Blind Mice, Hot Mess, and Half Fast. Must be 21 or older to attend events at Mississippi Moon Bar.
"Hail to the Heroes" raises awareness and support for military and Veterans while connecting them to resources. Listening to live music has a universal positive impact on wellbeing and has been successfully used as therapy for years because it makes people happier, has an analgesic effect, and helps people feel connected – all of which are vital for mental health and longevity.
The night will also include a guitar raffle, silent auction, 50/50 drawing, and Cabo trip. Iowa Rock ‘n Roll Music Association is pleased to partner with Veteran’s Freedom Center and Diamond Jo Casino to produce this event. Veteran's Freedom Center exists to meet the needs of active duty, reserve and all honorably discharged tri-state military Veterans.
Iowa Rock ‘n Roll Music Association is producing "Rock 4 Vets" events across the state this November to provide music therapy for active and retired military men and women and raise awareness of resources they may not be familiar with. Other event dates include Merrill on November 3rd, Spirit Lake on November 10th, Sioux City on November 11th, and Burlington on November 18th.
Established in 1997 as the first state rock ‘n roll music association, the Iowa Rock ‘n Roll Music Association is a statewide 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to preserve the legacy of rock ‘n roll music in Iowa by honoring achievements, educating youth, and inspiring artists.
