Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl announces pre and postgame concerts
The Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl will once again feature a pre and postgame concert surrounding its bowl game on Saturday, Dec. 29. The DFW-based band “Le Freak” will headline the show at a postgame concert presented by Armed Forces Insurance.
The “Greatest Disco Band in the Word”, Le Freak will perform immediately following the conclusion of the 2012 Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl in the bowl’s Armed Forces Adventure Area. Both the Adventure Area and the concert are free to the public and will pay tribute to the men and women of the United States armed forces, as well as their families. The Adventure Area will be held at Amon G. Carter Stadium, the site of the postseason bowl game.
Le Freak is a high energy, high quality cover band that boasts danceable entertainment for crowds of all ages. Inspired by all things Disco, the four-person band consists of Mick "Soda" James, Curly "The Package" Brown, Marvin "Cupcake" Jackson-Osmond and Bo Bandit.
Prior to the 10:45 a.m. (CT) kickoff of the 10th anniversary Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl, “Good Question Band” will start the day’s festivities at a pregame concert beginning at 8:45 a.m. (CT), also held in the Armed Forces Adventure Area.
With a repertoire ranging from contemporary hits to legendary classics, Good Question performs in the classic style of great horn bands like Earth, Wind and Fire, The Commodores, Chicago, Kool and The Gang. The group is comprised of female vocalists, lead male vocals, and an outstanding horn and rhythm section driving the groove.
