...there are not many artists out there that write, record and perform songs dedicated to our military and Veterans. DannyB does exactly that! DannyB has devoted his time and energy to performing for our active, inactive, retired and in tribute for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
DannyB (Danny Barnes) is a Vietnam Veteran, singer/songwriter recording artist. He has
written and co-written numerous songs about and for our country’s veterans. This is DannyB’s way of healing from the Vietnam War where he was in a combat infantry brigade. His first song That Black Wall was performed in Washington DC for a concert given to our Vietnam Veterans for the 25th Anniversary of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 2007. Since that time, DannyB has released many singles and EPs. His latest album We Remember (11/2013) is a 10 song CD. The album We Remember is dedicated to all of America’s Military Heroes. This collection of songs are an emotion evoking tribute to all our Veterans and Military Service Personnel. Proceeds are given to various veteran and wounded warrior organizations.
DannyB is well known for his performances in the Upstate New York area for opening ceremonies at locations where the various traveling Vietnam Veteran Memorial replicas are displayed; patriotic events and many wounded warrior and veteran fundraisers. DannyB also performs at many military reunions throughout the country, helping his fellow brothers and sisters heal as well.
3rd Annual Wounded Warrior Concert
New York Warrior Alliance was the beneficiary of the 3rd Annual Wounded Warrior Benefit Concert sponsored by the Greece American Legion Post 468. This years event was a huge success! Raising over $25,000 and donations are still coming in. Congratulations to everyone who helped make this event such a success.
DannyB's newest album, WE REMEMBER is a 10 song CD full of emotion evoking tributes to Veterans. Anyone serving in combat will relate to the cover song We Remember as its lyrics talks about the fear felt, the longing for home and the names of the fallen brothers and sisters. Also on this CD is a musical rendition of the poem by A. Lawrence Vaincourt, A Soldier Died Today (Just A Common Soldier). DannyB's creative ability has taken this poem from 1987 and transformed it to a powerfully emotional song about our forgotten soldiers once they are reaching the end of their day. Other songs on the album are This Is My Rifle, from the infamous drill instructor's rant of "This is your rifle, this is your gun" which most soldiers will understand! Imagine It's You is a song about our homeless veterans, while a couple of the songs are re-releases adding rich instrumentals that flow with the lyrics. These comments cover only a few of the wonderful songs DannyB has on this fantastic charity album. The proceeds go to not for profit veteran and wounded warrior organizations, and those proceeds are split with organization where DannyB performs for fund-raising events.

DannyB states: "I hope that you enjoy this album. Please know that your purchase is helping all Veterans, as proceeds for each album goes directly to Veterans and Wounded Warrior organizations."
The 9-11 Memorial Museum is now open
None of us will ever forget, nor should we, what happened on September 11, 2001. DannyB has put his emotions in his songs: Nine-Eleven, written just 2 days after the attacks on our nation; Five Years Past, for the 5th anniversary of 9-11; and his well known song, A Decade Ago in dedication of the decade that had passed since the September 11th attacks. Check out the album, Nine-Eleven A Decade of Tribute. This album was composed so that we would never forget, just like our memorials and museums.
