About the Event
War Hippies, Scooter Brown and Donnie Reis, met during downtime while home in Nashville at the end of 2021, connecting on music and their history as combat veterans. Shortly afterward, the pair casually played a charity concert for the first time together at the renowned 3rd and Lindsley venue. During the set Scooter stated, “We’re just a couple of War Hippies,” explaining, they’re both warriors willing to do what it takes to protect our freedoms but who also pray for peace and love. They decided to start the new project, War Hippies, together as a duo and hit the ground running in 2022, releasing two singles, a full album, and going on tour with Travis Tritt.
