The Star Spangled Banner: by Madison Rising band
Madison Rising, America's most patriotic rock band led by singer Dave Bray and guitarist Alex Bodnar is proud to announce the release of their second album, "American Hero", dedicated to the men and women of our Armed Forces along with the police, firefighters and other first responders whose sacrifice and selfless dedication to the service of this country help this great nation to remain the land of the free and the home of the brave. The band composes and performs guitar-heavy rock music with an explicitly pro-American message.
A dedicated leader and patriot, Dave was a Recruit Chief Petty Officer in basic training a Master at Arms in A-School, and was awarded the honor of Top Dog in Field Medical Service School. He would finally serve in the U.S. Navy as an 8404 FMF Corpsman for the 2d Battalion, 2d Marines stationed at Camp Lejeune, NC.
Dave's voice is often described as a passionate, but soft roar, controlled and melodic, teetering on the edge of detonation. A true showman, Dave puts his heart and soul into every performance and has been captivating audiences with his "blood, sweat and tears style" performances for years.
"It is my firm belief that without God there is no country … Madison Rising, for me, is truly a call back to service … a service that our country needs in a war that our country doesn't even know exists." ~ Dave
