What better way to stay warm this winter than to head to the Caribbean. Well, that is exactly where State of Man is headed this December. The band has once again been invited to join and entertain the honorable men and women of the US Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. It is our privilege to return to the warm sun and our good friends at GITMO, and do our part to support these great soldiers who provide us with the freedoms we celebrate everyday.

Though you might not be there with us, you’ll be able to catch all the action on in the very near future as the company will join us to video tape the show! We’ll keep you in the loop for more on that!

Thanks to all the service men and woman for giving your lives in exchange for our freedom and can’t wait to rock the pirates’ paradise once again.
