New York City singer-songwriter Marcus Goldhaber launches his Come Home America Tour during Fleet Week NY 2014, in a special performance that celebrates “The New Greatest Generation” of the US Military. Goldhaber and his band take the tour later to concert halls, stadiums, military bases and parades around the world. Proceeds from the tour and the Come Home America song benefit Iraq and Afganistan veterans via the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America support and service group.
The concert is Friday, May 23 at the Cutting Room, 44 East 32nd St. Tickets are $15 advance; $20 day of show. Click here to buy tickets. Doors open 6:30 p.m. Show time is 7:30 p.m.
The show features the premiere of original new material from Goldhaber’s forthcoming Come Home America album. The song Come Home America is a pop anthem produced by Ke$ha collaborator Cliff Goldmacher, inspired by America’s military heroes, honoring our troops and supporting our veterans abroad.
Goldhaber released the album on Veterans Day as a stirring ode to our nation’s two million service members across the globe, and the 24 million veterans back home, both embraced and discarded. He says the mission is simple: to benefit the needs of this new generation of returning veterans, while improving and strengthening the dialogue between civilians and military families for years to come.
The Marcus Goldhaber Band and special guests include:
- Roy Dunlap – keyboards
- Jeff Hanley – bass
- Hendrik Helmer – guitar
- Rich Mercurio – drums
- Pat Firth – synth
- Antoinette Henry – backup vocals
“COME HOME AMERICA” is also available on iTunes.
