The American Bombshells go the extra mile to learn military traditions, history and structure, building a bond of camaraderie and friendship.
Arlington, Virginia (PRWEB) January 26, 2015
The ambassadors of America’s gratitude to our nation’s heroes, The American Bombshells, will be bringing their special style of patriotic musical entertainment to World T.E.A.M. Sports’ annual Face of America banquet in Arlington, Virginia April 24.
World T.E.A.M. Sports CEO and President Van Brinson announced that the New York-based non-profit organization will provide the entertainment at the banquet honoring injured military veterans from America and her allies. More than 500 participants of the Face of America bicycle and hand cycle ride from the Pentagon to the historic battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania will attend the catered dinner at the Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel the evening prior to the 110-mile ride’s early morning start.
“World T.E.A.M. Sports welcomes the inclusion of The American Bombshells to the Face of America,” said Brinson. “Their particular blend of patriotism and musical showmanship promises to elevate the entire evening.”
With three-part harmony and a classic 1940s look, The American Bombshells have offered performances to military veterans, active-duty military, wounded warriors and Americans across the country since 2011. Military bases, veterans’ hospitals and special events like NBC’s Today Show and the Wounded Warrior Project’s Soldier Ride have enjoyed inspiring performances from the group, who sing everything from rock ‘n roll to country to classic patriotic songs offered by The Andrews Sisters to American troops during World War II.
Founded by singer Ali Reeder, who met her Marine husband during Fleet Week following a musical program on his ship, the non-profit organization depends on sponsorships, performance fees and donations to continue their mission to entertain members of the military and particularly injured veterans.
"It is such a humbling honor, to be able to bring a little joy to those who have sacrificed so much,” said Reeder. “We have had the pleasure to hear so many personal stories that we will carry in our hearts and continue to honor by preserving their memories.”
The American Bombshells boast pinup good looks and a high-energy, interactive program that uplift spirits and inspire listeners. Performing acapella at many of their performances, The American Bombshells provide an emotional connection through their family-friendly music.
“Our shows are built specifically around the requests of the military veterans we serve. From WWII to Vietnam to OIF/OEF, we aim to connect musically to all generations,” explained Reeder. “The American Bombshells go the extra mile to learn military traditions, history and structure, building a bond of camaraderie and friendship.”
