4TROOPS set to entertain on Oct. 17
Nationally known recording group 4TROOPS will be performing at Cowley College’s Robert Brown Theatre on Monday, Oct. 17, 7:30 pm..
4TROOPS are United States combat veterans - three young men and one woman who served on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan. While overseas, music played a crucial and very personal role in all of 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.
Tickets are available by calling the Cowley College Box Office at 620-441-5570. The cost for adults is $15 and $8 for students.
Their nationalist appeal and country and western related music themes have led to several nationally televised appearances. The group's first CD, also titled 4TROOPS, stayed on the Billboard 200 charts for 6 weeks, peaking at 36th position.
