75th Anniversary D Day?

We have been invited to sing a 30 minute or so concert in honor of the 75th Anniversary of the D Day Invasion in World War II and participate in a parade (riding on a flat bed etc.)

The invitation has come from the National D Day Memorial Foundation in Bedford, VA.  The timeframe is June 7, 8 and 9.  Thus this would involve an approximate four hour trip to Bedford (near Lynchburg) and return with two overnight stays.

We may also do a concert in Lynchburg on the evening of June 8. 

Cost Estimate:  A fifty four seat bus for the three days will cost appoximately $110 per person

Accomodations in Lynchburg will run $80 per night (taxes included) per room, free wi-fi and breakfast.  Three star hotel so I'm told.
