The band, made up of current frontline workers and responders, includes: Major Frank Fernandez on drums, physician’s assistant Debi Kuiper-Tomas on bass, and Captain Eddy Alarcon and Lieutenant Troy Maness on guitar. The performance will also feature background vocals by Sergeant Liz Bremer, labor and delivery registered nurse Kim Fleurinord, firefighter Adrian Ballard, and registered nurse, firefighter, paramedic and retired U.S. Air Force Major Marlon Ferdinand.
