Madison Rising, America���s most patriotic rock band, is on a mission to make great rock music and send a message that American culture is alive and well. Their lead singer, Dave Bray is a military veteran and a former Navy Corpsman for the 2nd battalion 2nd Marines.
The band has an especially strong following among military and veterans groups, and has performed countless events for them, as well as at NFL half-time shows, the opening ceremony of the 2014 Special Olympics, at NASCAR races, the legendary Buffalo Chip in Sturgis and several other major venues. Along the way, they have opened for rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aerosmith, Steppenwolf, Kansas, Weezer, Toby Keith and others.
The band is often asked to do shows around the country by various military and veterans groups that cannot afford to cover the costs associated with travel and production, even on occasions where the band would provide a steeply discounted performance. That’s where we come in: Your generous tax-deductible contribution to The Madison Rising Shows For Heroes foundation will help cover the costs of these shows and allow Madison Rising to provide free performances for these men and women – along with our police, firefighters, EMT and other first responders – who have given so much of themselves. The more you contribute, the more they can do.
Madison Rising Shows For Heroes is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization. Tax ID number 47-2753475.
