The Matt Poss Band is raising $$$ to record a concept CD dedicated to the troops. Proceeds will benefit Wounded Warriors.

It’s not Pro-War or Anti-War…it’s Pro-Troops. International touring group and Nashville Recording Artists, The Matt Poss Band has had a close working relationship with the US Armed Forces since their first USO trip to Germany in 2006. Since that initial trip, the band has gone on to tour Europe, The Middle East, and multiple bases around the continental US. Entertaining the troops here and abroad is a job MPB takes very seriously. As Matt puts it, “This is a way we can show our support to the troops and give back a little bit."  He goes on, "Now that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are winding down, it's more important than ever to remember our vets and the sacrifices they made in our names.”

Over the years MPB have collected stories from troops around the world and put those stories into songs like “Rolling Thunder”, released on 2008’s album Hinges, and “The Man Who Went Up The Mountain”, released on 2011’s album Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride. Now in 2012, MPB is gathering up their Troop inspired songs and putting them together on one CD entitled “Beans and Bullets". This album is not meant to glorify war, nor is it meant as a protest album. Rather, it simply sheds light on the experience of being a soldier in this modern world in complicated times. It is meant as a tribute to the Troops.

Once completed, the net profit from each sale of this album will be donated to The Wounded Warriors Project. WWP is the best non profit organization helping wounded military personnel adjust back into civilian life after being wounded in combat, physically or mentally.  The band's goal is ambitious, but they hope to be able to write a check to WWP in the amount of 50,000.00 by New Years 2014.  With your help we will all get there together. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our story. Thank you for your support!
