WEGave has created an avenue through music to comfortably bring veterans & service members together.
When veterans return home, they bring back memories that will follow them the remainder of their lives. They remember the adventures of war, the hardships, the fear and courage it took to persevere. Oftentimes, their best memories recall working together as a team.
But conversations are often slow to begin, as proud veterans can remain practically silent about their experiences. WEGave (Warrior Entertainment Group American Veteran Experience) gives veterans the opportunity for a powerful experience by allowing them to express themselves through the power of music.
WEGave creates a natural sharing platform for veterans by bringing them together to create, produce and perform music.
Music allows veterans to explore and reveal deeper truths. It can help veterans find closure by allowing them to tell their stories. Through WEGave, and with your help, we can enable our veterans to form a band, learn, own, and practice a musical instrument, organize gigs, engage in band competitions, win awards and record deals, and participate in the annual Veterans Music Awards Ceremony in Nashville.
WEGave helps vets & service members achieve many things!
The goal at WEGave is to provide the necessary tools and resources for all veterans and service members to be able to learn, perform and heal through music. We are excited to expand our services as our organization continues to grow.
LEARN AN INSTRUMENT
WEGave believes that music is magical in the way it opens us up and the others that are listening. You are never too old to learn something new. Our staff will help provide you the resources and connections in your area to learn a new instrument.
OWN AN INSTRUMENT
We know you can only progress with the right tools, but not everyone has the access or funds available to pursue their passion of music. Donations to WEGave contribute to helping our veterans and service members get on a path to owning their own instrument.
JOIN A BAND & PERFORM
Our team helps connects veterans & service members with similar musical interests. The larger our network grows, the more bands will be able to form. Lets have fun and help others heal through music. It’s time to share your talent!
BATTLE OF THE BANDS STYLE COMPETITION
Our veterans & service members will be given the opportunity to compete against other WEGave musical groups starting at a local level and ending at our national competition in Nashville, Tennessee. We want to create life changing opportunities for these heroes that have given so much to our country.
BOOK MUSIC GIGS
It’s what’s behind the scenes that really matters. We are looking for veterans & service members that are interested in learning how to book gigs and take care of logistics.
WEGave is looking for volunteers!
WEGave is growing organization and is always looking for people that love music and would like to contribute. You do not need to be a veteran or service member to be involved. We are looking for help on both local and national levels.
