Sacramento, Calif. -- Down Range Music Festival, a one-day event benefiting the Sacramento Chapter of Guitars For Vets, is debuting on May 19, 2018 at The Park at The Murieta Inn and Spa. The all-day event, produced by Blue Gaucho Project, will be a multi-genre event and feature a number of successful performers. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Sacramento Chapter of Guitars For Vets, a nonprofit empowering veterans through music.
Thousands of our war Veterans are afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In fact, more soldiers have committed suicide since the Vietnam War than have died in actual battle. But many are finding hope in an unlikely place: behind the wood and strings of an acoustic guitar. The healing power of music helps soldiers cope. That’s why we provide veterans with guitars and a forum to learn how to play. But we can't do it without your help.
GUITARS FOR VETS HAS FULFILLED OVER 30,000 LESSONS AND DISTRIBUTED OVER 3,000 GUITARS FREE TO MILITARY VETERANS.
