4TROOPS are United States combat veterans. While overseas, music played a crucial and very personal role in their lives. They would sing at everything from large military events to more intimate settings, where they would jam in their bunk after a long day in the field and try to recall a slice of home. They also used their voices at somber occasions like memorial services, where they would sing to remember those that had been lost. 4TROOPS now come together for a singular purpose - to sing on behalf of all troops, to honor their sacrifices and to create awareness for their needs.

The group will perform at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 9, in the Ikeda Theater at Mesa Arts Center, 1 E. Main St., Mesa. Tickets - $26 and $36 - are available by calling the box office at (480) 644-6500 or visinting www.mesaartscenter.com.

Their self-titled CD consists of well-known positive pop and country songs and some new songs. The songs take on a special meaning in the context that they are performed by these four combat heroes.

An important element to the 4TROOPS project is giving back to organizations that support our U.S. soldiers and veterans. Sony Music will donate 50 cents from each sale of the 4TROOPS album in the United States to organizations that support veterans and their families. This donation will be split equally among The American Legion, Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA), Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) and the USO.
