We love working with our charity partners!

“There’s a lot of people in this town talking about Rock Stars & Stripes and it’s not just Major Chords for Minors! Our organization is one that provides free music lessons to at-risk children. How blessed were our kids that a rock star called to do a show for us?

 Our first call was an interview. David explained he was looking for a non-profit to support in this community and we were one of the chosen. He said it was fun touring with Boston, but he missed the opportunity of experiencing the country with such a rigorous touring schedule. So he created Rock Stars & Stripes – an actual rock and roll road trip across America. With this road trip, David and his talented band of musicians provide a clean, exciting journey through our great land and the rock-and-roll sounds of the regions. Sounds great? Holy Moley! Wait until you experience this concert!

We were excited to have our organization selected to receive partial proceeds from the concert! We helped inform the community by placing flyers around town and promoting the show in person and in social media. By participating, we were all energized with our part in the show. Rock Stars & Stripes did everything else. And they even supported local businesses, honored our local heroes, and brought this town some fun! It truly was a community event, with people coming from surrounding areas and even Canada, coming to experience the show.

Let’s get to show night. Rock Stars & Stripes blasted onstage and played non-stop rock-n-roll all night! One song after another in perfect precision and delivery! It was so hard to decide on watching the band or watching the video – so exciting! And they even included our town in the video.  That’s special to a community who has seen bad times. The positive message and images in our town that were recognized reminds us there is much pride in our community, if we just look for the good. I think that was personally the message of the night: “Hey, let’s all be happy and have a rock party!” David Victor and his team delivered and they treated us like rock stars!

The live auction of the autographed Rock Stars & Stripes guitar brought our organization $3,000! What a blast!”
