Dash Ten, the only original rock band backed by a branch of the military, will perform a free concert at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, in Northern Michigan University's Reynolds Recital Hall. The U.S. Army trio was started by Sgt. Corrin Campbell, originally of Duluth, Minn., and includes Staff Sgts. Peter Greenberg and Steve Ebert.
Campbell had been working two careers: one as a soldier and combat veteran and one as an independent recording artist. Finally the two merged and she began touring on behalf of the U.S. Army in 2012, telling her story through music.
“It’s amazing to be able to talk about what it means to be an individual with goals and aspirations, but have your character amplified by service as a soldier. I am unique; I am still me,” Campbell said.
The band tours across the country more than 300 days per year and spent its 2015 summer on Vans Warped Tour.
