This Veterans Day marked the 2nd Annual VETS ROCK hosted by Mohegan Sun Casino. Ticket sales from this benefit concert support Til Duty is Done www.tdid.org which is a non-profit organization that helps in reducing veteran homelessness, unemployment and facilitates with reintegration. This is an all day event and it is great to see people extending a hand to say “thank you” for your service to the many veterans in attendance.
Tony Orlando, returned as the Master of Ceremonies, kicked off the evening festivities. While singing “Tie a Yellow Ribbon”, he asked veterans from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines, to stand and show what war or conflict they served for the United States of America. Each person who stood, received a loud round of applause.
Afterwards, Tat Holler and Madison Rising got the crowd warmed up for New England legends Godsmack and Dropkick Murphys. Godsmack, who is currently not on tour, hand selected the setlist for their special one hour set. Sully and company blew the roof off the arena and set the stage for the headliners.
Repeat performers at this event, Dropkick Murphys, ended the night with a high octane performance. Just like Godsmack, they are currently not on tour. Last year, they opted to do an acoustic set, which was just as impressive to experience. Their set consisted of fan favorites and a special song that they have never played for a crowd. As the band got deeper into their set, hardcore fans were going crazy and singing at the top of their lungs and dancing in their seats. Fans were commenting as they were filing out of the arena that they cannot wait to see them again when they go out on tour next year.
During this difficult time going on in the political arena, with the hate being flung around on social media, it is great to see people come together to support a great charitable cause. This is a very heart-warming event to attend and it will be held again next year at Mohegan Sun.
