Patriotic rock band Madison Rising has announced that due to a continuing influx of inquires from teachers around the country regarding its #1 best selling rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, that it will make both lead singer Dave Bray as well as lead guitarist Alex Bodnar available to bona-fide educators for Skype sessions into their classrooms to talk directly to students about the origin and significance of our nation’s National Anthem and what that song means to them. The band has also offered carte blanche to any teachers wanting to use the bands music or video for educational purposes within their classrooms on a royalty free basis.
“We’ve been getting emails from teachers every day asking if they can play our song or video in their music or social studies classes as a way to really get the students excited about the National Anthem for once,” said Madison Rising lead singer Dave Bray, a Navy veteran. “To us, that would be a dream come true. The whole reason we created Madison Rising was restore a sense of pride back into this country, especially among the younger generations, so we would be honored to have our music used to entertain, educate and inspire students in the most exciting ways possible. We want to be role models for these kids in every way imaginable, and we know that having the chance to talk with us directly will only help solidly the sort of positive relation and impact we’re looking to create.”
Earlier this summer, Madison Rising released a distinctive and widely acclaimed rock version of the Star Spangled Banner, updated with a special addendum to reflect our nation’s struggles at the dawn of the 21st century. Madison Rising’s rendition is currently #1 in several key musical categories on Amazon.com and the band itself has launched a One Million Star Spangled Banner Challenge (http://www.starspangledbannerchallenge.com) offering Americans a fun and meaningful way to show their patriotism by watching the band’s new video and downloading their rendition of the National Anthem directly to their iPods and other devices to play proudly in their cars, at the gym, at the beach or anywhere else they want. The video currently has over 500,000 views on YouTube, and is well on its way to achieving its goal of one million views by Election Day (November 6th).
Madison Rising promotes the principles of liberty, independence, smaller government and personal responsibility. Their mission is not only to make great music, but to also send a message that American culture is alive and well. Madison Rising is currently recording its second album and has a major Kickstarter project underway (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1533684542/madison-rising-the-new-album-and-american-tour) to finance production of the album and lay the groundwork for a national tour. The band encourages its fans to join their project and become a true part of the Madison Rising team.
