    I was just wondering if anyone here has been ina band that has played a USO Tour. It seems to me like a damn good way to get to travel, play a lot of gigs, get paid, and last but not least... Entertaining some damn fine people!

    I used to be in the Air Force, and I remember one time being entertained by a band at Al Jaber Air Base, thanks to the USO.

    So, does anyone have any experience with working with these folks

    All the best!

    Great question....I'd be interested to know thoughs on this subject as well!
  3. Drummer friend who works with Federal contracting sent me a copy of a Dept. of Defense Request for Proposal (RFP) for various musical entertainment activities - including an AC/DC Tribute show - to be conducted in Iraq. Wish I still had the link - it was a fascinating document.

    Regardless of how I feel about what's going on over there, I expect playing a gig like that pays up your room rent in Heaven for quite some time.
