Rock Musician Jonathan Auerbach Produces and Performs a Musical Tribute Marking Memorial Day on Martha’s Vineyard to Salute America’s Troops

In honor of Memorial Day and the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation, local Massachusetts Veterans, from WWII to Afghanistan, will attend a benefit concert – a rockin’ performance of all-original music by island musicians, guitarist and singer/songwriter Jonathan Auerbach and vocalist Carole Charlin, backed by Alejandro Carreño on percussion.

The benefit kicks off at “16:00 hours” sharp with Edson Rodgers, Ret. Chief Petty Officer, of Martha’s Vineyard, playing military music calls on his trumpet.

The event is free, open to all ages, with a suggested donation of $10 at the door. All proceeds will go to the Dukes County Veteran’s Services, in the care of Dukes County Veteran’s Agent Jo Ann Murphy, to help our Island veterans.

The MV Film Society is donating its venue and resources to this event. Preceding the concert will be a powerful short film – “Fish Out of Water,” about Iraq and Afghanistan war vets with PTSD who find solace and camaraderie fishing in the waters of Ketchum, Idaho.

“With bravery and valor, American military personnel – fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters – have given us so much as Americans,” said Jonathan Auerbach. “Helping our veterans and their families is my mission, of gratitude and of giving back.”
