The Temecula Valley High School Band will perform prior to the Lt. Dan Band concert on Mar. 1, it was announced today by the concert’s promoters.
The performance benefits triple-amputee U.S. Marine Cpl. Juan Dominguez.
The band will play prior to the scheduled opening acts — Temecula’s Brewer Boys and “America’s Singing Cop” Danny Rodriguez.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit the building of Dominguez’ smart home in Temecula.
The band previously performed at Temecula’s City Hall on “Juan Dominguez Day” when the Marine was honored and welcomed to the city.
The band is slated to perform at 6 p.m. as gates open from the third floor balcony of City Hall.
“Our band is excited to be a part of this ceremony especially because several of our students have fathers who have served, or, are currently serving in the military,” band director Anthony Scarcella said in a statement. “Two of our students have already enlisted in the Marine Corps and will ship off to boot camp after graduation. We are truly honored to be a part of this wonderful event. Juan Dominguez is an inspiration to all our students.”
