A few weeks ago, we introduced you to the Groove Alliance, an R & B band from New Hampshire. Front man Mike Pacheco is a major in the U.S. Army and he spent the past year in Baghdad. Earlier this month, his band mates traveled to the Green Zone to play a number of shows to entertain Iraqi workers and to raise money for the Starfish Network, a group that provides funding for surgeries for Iraqi children. We find out how the tour went.
