The Creative Drill Sergeants Vets Jam Band & Music Performance Program works to bring in veteran musicians to learn, for free, how to work together as a performance group and to provide an expressive outlet for songwriting development, comradery, musical skills improvement, and performance experience leading to public performance opportunities for veteran musicians. We have our Operation Enjoyable Employment that looks for opportunities to perform for pay to compensate veteran musicians and Vets Jam Band members for their travel expenses to perform. We hope to show that expressive arts and musical performance are opportunities to earn money and can assist in financial stability.
Since its creation in 2018, the Vets Jam Band has performed at several venues to include The Hard Rock Cafe, Last Exit Live, The Rogue Bar, AZ Latino Arts and Culture Center, AZ Veterans Coliseum, Fiddlers Dream and now the Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts. Our 501c3 Veteran Owned and Operated Nonprofit strives to meet our mission through creative & expressive outlets.
Our nonprofit music performance program also works to provide musical mentorship, as well as provide veterans interested in engaging in musical expression original songwriting opportunities for public performance. We have experienced musicians who mentor other veterans to engage in music and share their musical talents in public performances.
