December 18, 2021 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM$15
JOE WALSH TO HOST “THE BASEMENT SHOW” FOR HIS FIFTH ANNUAL VETSAID OFFERING: Livestream will feature debut of BRAND NEW MUSIC with performances from Joe Walsh and Band (featuring Benmont Tench, Waddy Wachtel, Lee Sklar, Russ Kunkel & Surprise Guests) as well as NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN performances from VetsAid 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020! VetsAid 2021: The Basement Show to be streamed online 12/18/2021 (with restream available through Christmas!) with all proceeds going directly to veterans services. Joe Walsh launched VetsAid on September 20, 2017 with an inaugural concert at the EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, VA. The second festival event was in Tacoma, WA and the third in Houston, TX. VetsAid typically seeks to host the events in cities across the country with large veteran populations. The shows have included performances by musicians including James Taylor, Chris Stapleton, Don Henley, ZZ Top, Sheryl Crow, The Doobie Brothers, Zac Brown Band, Jason Isbell, Keith Urban, Haim, Gary Clark Jr. and Joe’s brother-in-law Ringo. VetsAid 2020 saw the festival move online during the COVID pandemic with more than 40 participating artists that included Willie Nelson, Eddie Vedder, Gwen Stefani, James Hetfield and Jon Bon Jovi. To date, VetsAid has disbursed nearly $1.8 million dollars to organizations that support veterans and their families. All net proceeds from the 2021 streaming festival will go directly to the veterans’ services charities selected through a vetting process coordinated in tandem with the Combined Arms Institute. Criteria for this year’s selection process will focus exclusively on our homeless veterans and the resettlement efforts of our Afghan allies.
