Strumming for Vets at Summer Get-Together

Strumming for Vets, a charitable organization that teaches disabled veterans how to play guitar, will make an exclusive live appearance at the 17th Summer Get-Together June 5 & 6 at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds. Based right here in the Bay Area, the Strumming for Vets ensemble will perform live acoustic music sets both Saturday from 1-3pm and Sunday from 2-3pm at the entertainment stage.

Founded by veteran John Rola of San Jose, Strumming for Vets provides acoustic guitars, gives them to disabled veterans then teaches them how to play by providing lessons. With donated guitars and teachers donating their time, the vets are given a new type of therapy that works wonders! Once they’re playing guitar at a high level, the group performs at public venues such as the Summer Get-Together.

The group will have tee shirts and hats available for purchase at the event. The funds generated from their merchandise sales goes directly towards the purchase of guitars for the disabled vets. Come out and hear some great music and support a wonderful local program!
