We just returned from a 14 day trip to Germany to serve the troops and found a couple of AFN (Armed Forces Network) reports about the band. So proud of each musician that donates their time to say with their actions as well as their words that they love the troops!
Willy Pete Summer Tour 2012
Some snap shots from our visit to Stuttgart, Germany...
May 2012 Tour
We just returned from an unbelievable trip to Germany where we played for over 2500 troops at 3 different military bases. The band had the opportunity to once again tour the halls of Landstuhl Regional Medical Center where we met the troops, gave out gifts and performed a few songs for them. We spent much of the time teary eyed from these encounters with real live heros who have SUCH great attitudes given the situation in which they find themselves.
2012 Winter Tour
We just returned from a tour where we performed 13 shows in 4 countries in 15 days. Every stop of our tour overwhelmed us by the committment of our armed forces personell. Through a partnership with RedBull, NASCAR & Margaritaville we were able to provide lots of free gifts for the troops stationed in Italy, Belgium, Germany & Switzerland.
Free Christmas Music
Willy Pete has worked quickly to provide a short holiday gift for the troops. This 4 song EP contains 4 great songs sure to put you in the Christmas spirit. "So This is a Merry Little Christmas", "This Time of Year", "The Little Drummer Boy" and "Silver Bells". Please spread the word to all the veterans and active duty troops you know.

NAWCTSD Town Hall Show
Willy Pete added the entertainment to NSA Orlandos Town Hall Meeting on Nov. 9. The Navy Base holds these meetings quarterly and each on has a specific ttheme. This one was "Country & Western" so the band pulled out lots of the greatest country songs of all time.
Italy a raving success!
We're back from our USO Italy Tour and once again we are amazed at what our troops do for us. We met and played for Marines in Rome, Seamen in Naples and Soldiers in Vicenza, Italy.

New Merchandise (May 10, 2011)
Willy Pete is proud to announce our first t-shirt is available. "Loud Hot Awesome" is the perfect description of the band...and obviously the explosive. And when you wear it you'll be making the not-so-subtle proclamation to the world that you also are in fact Loud, Hot & Awesome.
