The American Vinyl All Star Band, featuring such living legends of rock n’ roll as Jeffrey “Skunk” Baxter (Doobie Bothers/Steely Dan), Barry Gordreau (formerly of Boston), Fran Sheehan (formerly of Boston), Leroy “LRS” Romans (The Wailers/3rd World), Robert “Mousey” Thompson (James Brown), and Danny Beissel (Fosterchild), are scheduled to perform at the Benefit Concert for Justice for Vets at the Anaheim Convention Center on Thursday, May 29. Doors open a 7:00 PM.

During this exciting, one-time-only show, the “All Stars” will be joined by special guests Hugh
Mc Donald (Bon Jovi) and Charlie Colin (Train) for an evening of classic rock music with Actress and Model Denise Richards serving as the event’s emcee.

Proceeds from the show will benefit Justice for Vets, which is a non-profit organization that leads the national effort to establish Veterans Treatment Courts within reach of every veteran in need. Justice for Vets is committed to changing the way the justice system responds to veterans. Instead of punishment, veterans struggling with the invisible wounds of war deserve the treatment, support and structure they need to thrive.

ABOUT VETERANS TREATMENT COURTS
Veterans Treatment Courts (VTC) have gained national prominence as the most innovative solution for veterans caught up in the criminal justice system. Veterans Treatment Courts stand between the veteran and a felony conviction, incarceration, or worse; ensuring that when returning service members are arrested because of a substance abuse and/or mental health disorder, they receive the structure, treatment and mentoring they need to get their lives back on track. Restoring them to the healthy citizens they once were before combat is the least we can do to honor their sacrifice.

There are now 2.4 million Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, with tens of thousands more coming home.
One in five suffers with PTSD or major depression and one in six are alcohol and/or drug addicted. Every night, 62,000 American veterans sleep on the streets.

Unless we incept them at the key moments of crisis, we may not have another opportunity. Tragically, suicide among our veterans is at epidemic proportions. For every soldier killed downrange on the battlefield this year, 25 veterans commit suicide. More than 8,500 veterans committed suicide last year – that’s approximately 22 a day; more than the total number of soldiers killed in Afghanistan and Iraq combined since those wars began.

There are over 700,000 veterans currently caught up in the criminal justice system. Tragically, that number is growing at an alarming rate as heroic combat veterans are being arrested for charges directly related to trauma, substance abuse, and/or mental illness. Unless we act, most will languish behind bars, never getting the treatment they have earned.

About The American Vinyl All Star Band
This all star, super group comprises some of the most iconic members of rock n’ roll history to create the ultimate on-stage performance. With multiple Grammy Awards and numerous hit records among them, this diverse group of musical artists banded together approximately eight years ago to help raise awareness and money for nationally recognized charities. Today, the band forges forward, with special guest performers along the way, delighting fans and music aficionados alike, while lending their talents to charitable organizations across the country.
