THE TUNNEL RATS
The Tunnel Rats Band are musicians from different backgrounds, who have come together to honor and raise awareness of issues facing our veterans and those returning from active duty. They entertain audiences with an Americana blend of songs that span Bluegrass, Folk, Southern Rock, Blues, and Country, sprinkled with a variety of their own original songs. Although most of their performances are crafted for general audiences, they offer several shows designed specifically to honor Veterans including a Vietnam Veteran Tribute show which debuted in Blairsville, GA at the Union County Fine Arts Theaters, October 2017.
