Hero Jam, The Jake Peavy Foundation’s annual benefit concert will be held on March 13 at LiveWire in Scottsdale, Arizona. Peavy, a starting pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, aims to show support and appreciation to the U.S. military through the event. Hero Jam is being touted as an event to “celebrate the service and honor of our U.S. military personnel.”
The United Service Organizations’ Transition 360 Alliance will receive the proceeds from the benefit concert. The USO’s Transition 360 Alliance “is an initiative to help U.S. military personnel and their families successfully transition back into civilian life after their service ends.”
“As we kick off the baseball season here in Arizona, it’s the perfect time to bring people together to celebrate and support one of the most important missions of our foundation—showing our gratitude to our nation’s military and the work they do to serve and protect,” said organizer and performer, Jake Peavy. “I know the music at Hero Jam will inspire our military and those who come support the incredible work of the USO.”
Performers slated to play at Hero Jam include opening act Kelley James, with Peavy’s band as the main act. The band, Jake Peavy and Friends, consist of Coy Bowles, Tim Flannery, Peter Gammons, Jimmy Hall, Jennifer Hartswick, Ben Jernigan, Doug Pettibone, Kevin Scott, Chris Spies, and Christopher Spies, Jr.
