The Band Steele – Sit Awhile
The Band Steele is passionate to recognize those who serve and sacrifice to risk their lives to lend aid to others–our military service men and women, and our veterans. Inspired by the brave, The Band Steele wrote and released the song, and corresponding music video, titled “Sit Awhile.” The initial “Sit Awhile” video garnered nearly 800,000 plays on Youtube to become one of the duo’s “most-requested” and most-reactive clips to date.
Bo and Ben are humbled by the moving responses from fans have written them letters to share their emotional reactions and gratitude for their recognition to our military in the “Sit Awhile” music video as a dedication and recollection of those lost. In response to the overwhelming reaction and feedback to the initial “Sit Awhile” music video release, the duo recreated the music video as a more-closely fitting and appropriate representation. To assure authenticity and demonstrate their honor in their sincere tribute, Musa Military Entertainment Consulting (a production company owned and operated by seasoned military veterans with modern tactical combat experience and broad entertainment expertise) was enlisted to offer direction to recreate this NEW “Sit Awhile” video; an Army Corporal/Operation IRAQI FREEDOM Veteran co-stars in the clip.
This is a very moving and emotional video, and would be a great feature for the upcoming Veteran’s Day holiday (November 12.)
Below you will find some comments and reviews from active and retired military personnel about the video.
“The music video is very powerful. As an army veteran it hit me. Just yesterday, I was thinking about a good friend of mine whom we lost in Iraq while sitting down by the riverbed. Moments later, this song came across my news feed and I had to sit down and just listen.”
“One of the best songs I have ever heard. I lost my cousin 13 years ago; he was my best friend…my brother. I heard this song and I immediately felt like
he was sitting right next to me. I listen to it when I’m driving, so it is like he’s
riding with me. As a vet myself, it says so much.”
“One of the most heartfelt songs I have heard in awhile…tears to my eyes and sadness in my heart for all our fallen soldiers.”
