Felix and Fingers recently dueled for the 4th annual Disabled Patriot fundraiser in Oak Forest, IL. This event raised donations for the Disabled Patriot Fund, a cause dear to some of the musicians’ hearts. The Disabled Patriot Fund provides relief to military families across the nation. For information on how to donate, please visit their website.

Disabled Patriot Fundraiser

There was also a raffle for a large wheel barrel of various types of alcohol, and guests could purchase a “wine and dine” package that included a bottle of wine and $25 restaurant gift card. As guests began their bidding, buffet-style dinner opened for everyone, as it was included in the price of the ticket. Each hour, a different local restaurant donated a meal for guests and veterans who attended.

After dinner had started to be served, we opened for the Libido Funk Circus concert. First was the presentation of colors, so we lead everyone in the National Anthem. Once everything was set, we began with the songs we prepared. Quickly, we had many people requesting patriot and country songs, so we segued into those. We even had requests from the present veterans who served in Vietnam for songs from that era. It was so touching for us to be able to play for these brave and wonderful people. We wrapped up our set with Gob Bless the U.S.A. by Lee Greenwood, and the crowd loved it.

At the end of the night, we counted up our tips and donated them back to the Disabled Patriot Fund. This night was a success, and we are thankful to have been a part of it.
