TOWNSEND -- Silverwolf Entertainment will host a musical tribute to veterans Saturday with live music from The Boys of Rockingham at the Townsend VFW.
The show will honor veterans while raising money for SilverWolf, whose mission is to provide children and young adults who wouldn't otherwise have the financial means to pursue a music career explore their dreams.
Serge Richard and Dan Leblanc, the founding members of the band, have been singing and playing music since they were teens. Influenced by country music, they decided in 2010 to make it their passion and form a band.
Richard and Leblanc are both from New Brunswick, Canada, and credit their influence to watching Leblanc's aunt and her band perform Cajun and country music.
They perform current top country-rock hits as well as classics.
"This is a big event for us. They're such a good group of guys and we're so fortunate to have them coming out to play for us," said Tubby Boucher, one of the founders of SilverWolf Entertainment.
The group does various fundraisers throughout the year, and all the money raised goes directly back into promoting music careers.
The Boys of Rockingham play throughout New England and recently opened for Jason Aldean in Boston and for Toby Keith in Foxboro. They've also been appearing at the Pasta Loft in Milford, N.H., and have performed at the Big Country in Manchester, N.H.
The show will run Saturday from 7 to 11 p.m., with food served from 6 to 7 p.
The number of tickets is limited to 125. They can be purchased through Boucher at 978-597-8876 or Neil Colicchio at 978-836-0171. They're also available at McNabb Pharmacy.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $9 for children ages 9 and under.
