The Veterans and Military Business Owners Association, VAMBOA, has continued its proud sponsorship role of the America Salutes You, a nationally televised concert series, “Guitar Legends II”, benefiting those who currently serve in our military, veterans and first responders.

“We, as a nation, must recognize the sacrifices made by all those who serve, past and present, first responders and their loved ones,” said Debbie Gregory, VAMBOA CEO. “These men and women write a blank check up to and including their lives so that we can be safe. America Salutes You is a positive way to raise awareness for these heroes and support some extraordinary non-profits that provide mental and brain health services to them. I am proud to continue to be part of the America Salutes You team.”

The benefit concert played to a full house on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at The Novo, an intimate theater known for its acoustics. The Novo is part of the L.A. Live event space, and was an ideal venue for the show.

Performances featured a great and eclectic collection of guitarists covering many different genres with guitar legends including Billy Gibbons, Dave Narvarro, Don Felder, Stephen Stills, Sammy Hagar, Robby Kreiger, just to name a few.

“We had some of the great guitar legends playing,” said executive producer, Bob Okun, of the third America Salutes You benefit concert line-up. “They all donate their time.”

“This is the third annual America Salutes You benefit concert honoring our veterans and first responders, ” said Okun. “We sincerely hope it will become an annual holiday tradition.”
