It’s finally here! You’ve been following videos, photos, and posts of Honor Society’s experiences with Salvation Army programs across the country while the hit band rocked out on their Here Comes Trouble tour.
Now Alex, Michael, Andrew, and Jason have released their final video with original footage and personal commentary as they reflect on their Salvation Army experience as a whole and the moments that most significantly impacted them.
The Salvation Army is incredibly thankful for the support of this talented band and all the hard work they put into volunteering with our programs! They made it a top priority to learn more about the people and communities they served and encouraged their fans to get involved as well. Who else can say they’ve done that while in the middle of a national tour?!
Thank you, Honor Society, for a great partnership!

Honor Society, the popular new band that we’ve partnered with the last few months, is wrapping up their national Here Comes Trouble tour with a show tonight in Nashville and a concert tomorrow in Atlanta tomorrow, May 8.
***If you’re in the Nashville area and able to make it out to the concert at Rocketown tonight, please bring nonperishable food items! Alex, Andrew, Michael, and Jason are holding a food drive to benefit the local Salvation Army food pantry, and you can help them in “doing the most good!” ***
Honor Society has done an INCREDIBLE job of supporting Salvation Army programs across the country. They no doubt have a lot of things they are doing as they enjoy their national tour, but we very much appreciate that they’re also making it a priority to give back to communities along the way and encouraging their fans to do the same!
Check out the most recent clips the band recorded of their time in Allentown, Pennsylvania; Washington, DC; and Cleveland, Ohio.
Allentown, PA (April 29): Honor Society served dinner to excited kids at the Community Center, and in a slight role reversal, the band was the audience to some children eager to show off their talents!
Washington, DC (April 26): The guys visited the Washington, DC Salvation Army’s Harbor Light Center and had a soulful jam session with the choir.
Cleveland, Ohio (April 21): Andrew, Alex, Michael, and Jason surprised the local Salvation Army Harbor Light Center’s homeless families by serving them dinner.

We recently showed you Part 1 of an Honor Society interview where they sat down with The Salvation Army in Norfolk, VA. If you need to catch up and watch the video, check it out at our original post because now we have Part 2!
The band discusses their time with the kids at The Salvation Army’s Kroc Center in San Francisco, their experience on the Bed and Bread Truck in Detroit, and why they wanted to partner with us again.

Here’s a video that will practically guarantee a smile on your face by the time you finish it.
Before heading to rehearsal for their concert at Nokia Theater, Honor Society visited The Salvation Army’s Harlem Corps Community Center in New York City where they met City Year volunteers and some very excited kids. When exploring the facility, the band admired (and even helped paint) the murals that decorate The Salvation Army Center’s school.
Honor Society spent most of their time with children’s choir and gave them tips on performing, including how to turn fear of being on stage into excitement! The band’s visit provided some awesome encouragement to the kids and everyone had a GREAT time!

The hit pop rock band Honor Society has been going non-stop on their national tour, bouncing from city to city while also making it a priority to be…
Friday, April 23, 2010
They’re working their way up the east coast for their Here Comes Trouble tour, but trouble makers they’re not – the young pop rock band Honor Society continues their packed concert schedule while partnering with The Salvation Army, making their next stop in New York City.
They will be wrapping up National Volunteer Week with a concert at the NOKIA Theatre this Saturday night, performing after a day of service at The Salvation Army’s Harlem Temple Community Center (for you New Yorkers reading this, the Center is located at Lenox Avenue and 137th Street).
Michael, Alex, Andrew, and Jason will work with 175 other volunteers to renovate The Salvation Army Harlem Center by painting rooms and murals, as well as building shelves for kids in the afterschool program. You can visit The Greater New York Division’s website here for more information about services offered by The Salvation Army.
When was the last time you went to a concert and the band had just finished a day of volunteer work?! And these guys have been doing things like this non-stop, from playing with kids, to feeding the homeless, to preparing beds at homeless shelters for adults, all as a part of the many Salvation Army Programs across the country.
They are a great example to their fans by using their talent to raise awareness of volunteering and supporting the work of The Salvation Army in communities around the nation!
After New York, Honor Society will head to Norfolk, Virginia on Sunday where they’ll be interviewed by The Norfolk Salvation Army’s monthly TV show, and then they’ll continue on to Washington, DC for a performance at the Rock N Roll Hotel Monday night.
We’ll be updating our social media sites with follow up info on these events, so make sure you save these links for the most up to date info:

Last week the popular rock band Honor Society hit the midwest during their national Here Comes Trouble tour, stopping in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Michigan’s Detroit area. As a part of their partnership with The Salvation Army, band members Michael, Jason, Andrew, and Alex have been involved with local Salvation Army programs throughout many of their tour stops.
Check out this great clip of the guys sent us of their time before their concert preparing beds at Salvation Army Minneapolis’ Harbor Light Center for the 400-500 homeless individuals who seek shelter there every night (get more info and photos at our original blog post here):
And here is another video Honor Society filmed of their experience delivering meals on the streets of Detroit as a part of The Salvation Army’s Bed & Bread Program that serves nearly 5,000 hungry individuals ever day (find more information and photos at our original blog post here):

The band Honor Society’s latest tour stop was Minneapolis MN, last night, but before they performed for thousands of their eager fans, the guys spent their afternoon preparing rooms for the homeless at The Salvation Army Harbor Light Shelter. Michael, Jason, Andrew, and Alex met The Salvation Army staff and laid out and cleaned mats for the hundreds of men and women who would find shelter at Harbor Light that night.
And offering a creative way for their fans to get involved, Honor Society invited concert goers and the general public to donate pillows at their concert held at the Varsity Theater to help replenish Harbor Light’s low supply.
Check out the photos below provided by The Salvation Army’s Northern Division, serving Minnesota and North Dakota. You can find more information and photos at their Flickr site and Facebook page.

Nearly 5,000 meals are served each day to children, adults and seniors by The Salvation Army Bed & Bread Program, which includes Bed & Bread trucks that make stops in metro Detroit’s most depressed areas every day of the year.
This is the latest Salvation Army program that the members of the band Honor Society have taken the time to be involved with as they travel around the country during their national Here Comes Trouble tour. The guys loaded up food in the truck before hitting the streets of Detroit to serve meals and talk to some of the truck’s regular visitors.
We applaud Michael, Andrew, Alex, and Jason for their efforts in helping The Salvation Army do the most good. There are plenty of other ways a popular young band could spend their time as they tour from city to city, but Honor Society has been extremely giving of themselves and taking the opportunity to serve others throughout their stops. Thanks, guys.
If you’d like to learn more about how The Salvation Army is taking compassion to the streets, you can find more information on the Bed & Bread Program at The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan Division’s website here. You can also catch a glimpse of Honor Society’s experience through the short video below.
