Southern Rockers Need You to Answer The Call of Duty To Put On Free Show For Troops

October 08, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
Los Angeles, CA—- Indie Southern rock band, The Dead Rebels will perform at the Twentynine Palms Marine Base welcoming back 1,000 troops. Not only will the Rebels pay their respect to the 800 marines that have lost their lives in duty, but they also hope to boost the overall morale of the base. In order to make this appearance, they have depended on the goodwill of sponsors, but are still in need of more support.

The Dead Rebels are known for their loud energetic performances, and in 2005 Music Connection magazine named the band one of 2005s top unsigned artists of the year. The owner of Joshua Desert Retreats offered the band accommodations in one of their gorgeous private houses to show his appreciation for The Dead Rebels putting on a free show for the troops. Additional backing has also been provided by Quarter2three Records, Indie Printing and Cherokee Studios.

We are doing all we can, says Lance Palmer the lead singer of The Dead Rebels. We hope some folks out there will help us do more. They deserve it!

The Dead Rebels are no stranger to performing good samaritan acts. The band has already contributed music to a fundraising CD for Operation-Helmet. Operation-helmet is a nonpartisan grassroots effort started by Dr. Bob Meader in 2003 whose goal is to help provide the troops with a helmet upgrade kit.

Southern rockers, The Dead Rebels, are set to headline the Pioneer Days Festival the following day, Friday October 20, at 10pm. The Dead Rebels will perform music from their self-titled debut release on the indie label Quarter2three, a division of Cherokee Studios music group.

The Rebels want to gift promotional items to the troops during their appearance such as, CDs, T-shirts, posters and any other appropriate merchandise. Sponsorship will be greatly appreciated in the form of cash, products or services. To make a contribution, please contact Tiffany Downey or Bruce Robb at Quarter2three/Cherokee Studios, 323-653-3412.
