Joyland Country Music Night Club is supporting the families of local deployed military troops serving in the Middle East this holiday season by teaming up with Manasota Operation Troop Support (MOTS).
The band Parmalee will perform at Joyland Friday with proceeds going to make this an extra special Christmas for local military spouses and their children.
One of Joyland's Facebook page members posted about spouses who are left behind to make Christmas memories alone and that inspired the Bradenton night club to make the concert a fundraiser. Club owner Rick Lambert decided that Joyland and all of their customers could do something special to show support to local troops’ families.
Joyland is partnering Nov. 30 with Manasota Operation Troop Support to make sure that the help is local. Manasota Operation Troop Support has a mission of serving local troops and their families during their deployment to the Middle East so their partnership seemed like a natural fit.
Together they will work to fill as many military family wishes as possible this year. Last year MOTS served over 50 active military families in our area with meals and gifts.
Parmalee is one of country musics’ most talked about new bands. Their current hit ‘Musta Had A Good Time’ is currently climbing the charts. They are known for incredible live performances and they have been named one of the to bands to watch in 2013.
