We are proud to announce our featured Non-Profit for The Northwest Hard Rock Invitational Summer Showdown is the Wounded Warrior Project. 

As many of you know, as a spouse of a Veteran,  I’m passionate about giving back to our nation’s service members – the few who fight to protect the freedom of this great country. Often times many of these inspiring individuals come home with wounds you can and can’t see, like a missing limb, combat stress, or depression. Because they’ve risked everything for us, I’m committed to raising awareness and funds for these wounded service members and their caregivers.

I am proud to host an event benefiting an organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has a big, audacious goal: to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history. I’m challenging myself to help WWP reach this vision, and I need your help.

WWP offers 20 holistic programs to wounded service members and their caregivers completely free of charge and 100% of the funds raised through the this event go directly to Wounded Warrior Project to help fuel these programs.

Not the happiest of events to announce the departure of Seth Troublefield from the Lightning Kings line up. Due to communication and scheduling issues there sadly was no other choice. Seth came to us right after the death of Ryan Petersen, our original drummer. Seth picked us up, dusted us off and got us back on track. We love and respect Seth. Seth was highly instrumental in our quick advances both professionally and musically. His growth as a musician is directly linked to the hard work he put in here and with his other band The Bomb Squad. We wish Seth all the best and continued success in his new group. That being said in the last 2 days we have had 3 players come through and pick up the neccessary material for audition. Auditions will be held in the first week of jan 2018. We think we are covered but none the less we have decided to extend for this next week to seek applications for audition. We know there are many undiscovered talents banging away out there. This is your invitation. So if you are a pro drummer with that back beat in the pocket groove and mojo, who thinks he or she can see them selves at this level of performance-- private message me.
