SALADO — The Legend Club is hosting a military appreciation and bike night this weekend to give back to soldiers. It kicked off Thursday with a tour of appearances by the Mustang Sally Band in Killeen and Temple and at Fort Hood and a concert at the club. It continues with Horse Opera performing tonight and Gary P. Nunn closing out the weekend with a performance Saturday night.

Peggy Sutherland, general manager for the club, said 10 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

“We wanted to host something that would benefit a very worthy cause,” she said. “It was just very fitting to be able to bring in the Mustang Sally Band because they travel all over the world with the USO to perform for military.”

The band just returned from overseas after playing for Navy and Air Force troops in Hawaii and Guam, said Tobi Lee, lead singer. It’s the band’s first time playing for a Fort Hood crowd.

“I’m excited,” Lee said. “It’s the men and women that have fought for our rights to give me the freedom to stand on the stage. So, to me, it’s my way of saying thanks because if it wasn’t for (them), I’m not here.”

The energy and entertainment will continue throughout the weekend.

Sutherland said she hopes everyone takes a deep breath, enjoys live music and has a good time.

“People who come out and support the project are going to be entertained,” she said.
