Route 66 Classic Grill will be hosting a 9/11 tribute again this year. The event will take place on Wednesday, September 11th, from 6pm-9pm, and the restaurant will also be hosting their weekly Bike Night that evening.
The band Rebel Heart will provide musical entertainment. The tribute will begin at 7pm. A bagpiper will begin playing “Amazing Grace” and exit the restaurant via the patio door, marching to the stage. The L.A. County Fire Department will be on hand to raise the flag from the ladder truck, and Millena Hicks will sing the “National Anthem.”
Bob Kellar will take the stage, speak for a few minutes and then introduce Mike Garcia. Garcia will be a great speaker, considering he was one of the first fighter pilots to enter Iran, following 9/11. When Mike is done speaking we have another incredible singer, Tim May, who will sing the Lee Greenwood song “God Bless the USA.” After that song, the bagpiper will begin playing again, and walk back into the restaurant. After about 15-20 minutes, the band will resume their set.
Route 66 invites active duty military, fire fighters and police officers to attend the tribute and enjoy complimentary dinner throughout the evening.
Route 66 is located at 18730 Soledad Canyon Road in Canyon Country. For more information call 661-289-1494.
