We’d played many events in the past for Wounded Warriors and the various branches of our military, but getting to perform at the Black Tie Gala during Sky Ball XII was truly an experience like no other! The American Airlines Sky Ball is an annual benefit event for the Airpower Foundation, an organization started in 1999 to help raise funding for veterans, Wounded Warriors, current members of our military, and their families. Held in a massive airline hanger festooned with colorful airplanes and decorative military regalia, the Sky Ball is a celebration and tribute to our men and women in uniform. Phat Strad was fortunate enough to be invited there to entertain the troops and their families, serenading VIPs at a cocktail event and performing a song on the big stage for the thousands of attendees in the hangar. It was an honor and a privilege to be a part of this wonderful event!
Phat Strad was one of the highlights of the night at a recent benefit for Wounded Warriors at the Cosmopolitan. The girls not only played cocktail and dinner sets, but also provided musical support for a paralyzed veteran who used the innovative “Ekso Skeleton” system to walk by himself for the first time. It was a very touching and informative evening for all, and Phat Strad was very proud to help honor those who have made great sacrifices for the sake of our country.
