Mile 8 is proud to announce they will be playing for the brave men and women in uniform stationed in the Middle East. Tour dates run from November 26 to December 23. The tour is part of Armed Forces Entertainment and the band will perform up to seven shows per week at various bases in the region. They will visit undisclosed bases in: Afghanistan, Kuwait, Bahrain, Uzbekistan, Qatar, UAE, Djibouti, and Kyrgyzstan.

On this tour they will visit several military bases where they will set up shop right there and perform a show for our men and women in uniform. They will not know their travel schedules till 24 hours before they depart each area, for heavy security reasons.

The band is privileged to have the opportunity to bring a small slice of home to these men and women. There job will be to serve as a vital link between those at home and those who guarantee our security – the Sailors, Soldiers, and Airmen. It is with great pride and humility that Mile 8 is able to serve these individuals who are protecting us everyday.

Mile 8 formed in 1999 with a goal to produce thick grooves and complex arrangements with a laid back style. Their fusion of reggae, jazz, and rock, pulled from such influences as John Coltrane and Stevie Ray Vaughan, produces a sound that is both lively and without a hint of monotony. They have developed an interactive relationship with the audience, breaking the barrier between the stage and the crowd. These six musicians have the desire and drive to perform and deliver an amazing show. Mile 8 has a goal to constantly produce a groove that moves the mind, body and booty.
