We Support Our U.S. Troops
For years the Bar-Kays, like many other popular bands, have taken the time out go overseas and give our troops a taste of home. We definitely acknowledge how important it is for entertainers to say thank you to all those men and women who risk their life to protect our country. We’ve visited and performed for the troops in Iraq, Kuwait and Bagdad. And despite the uncomfortable heat, we wouldn’t trade that experience for the world.
