We would like to fulfill as many of the requests as possible, but in the event we can’t make it for some reason, we happy to have sports teams or venues play our music or videos before their games up on the Jumbotron or however else makes sense.

Patriotic rock band Madison Rising will be performing its #1 best selling rendition of the Star Spangled Banner at Dutchess Stadium, home of the Hudson Valley Renegades, in Wappinger’s Falls, NY on September 11th. The performance will be just prior to the start of the game that evening at 7:00 PM, and will be in conjunction with the first annual Guns & Hoses celebrity baseball event featuring police and fireman from across the area, as well as famed NY sports celebrities including NY Giant Hakeem Nicks, all-time NY Met and Yankee great Dwight Gooden, NY Ranger Ron Greschner and NY Yankee Joe Ausenio. A portion of the proceeds raised will benefit the National Law Enforcement Memorial Foundation and the Paul Tegtmeier Memorial Fund.
Earlier this summer, Madison Rising released a 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. In conjunction with that release, the band also launched its One Million Star Spangled Banner Challenge (http://www.starspangledbannerchallenge.com) to offer 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. With nearly 600,000 views on YouTube, the band is well on its way to achieving the goal of one million views by Election Day (November 6th).
“We’ve started to get a ton of requests for live performances,” said manager, Richard Mgrdechian. “But to do an event with the police and fireman on 9/11 is certainly an honor for us. We would like to fulfill as many of the requests as possible, but in the event we can’t make it for some reason, we happy to have sports teams or venues play our music or videos before their games up on the Jumbotron or however else makes sense. We know our music can help energize the crowd no matter what.”
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 actively laying the groundwork for a national tour.
