TAMPA, Florida (AP) - An eclectic mix of musicians will play to crowds at private parties during the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

The Tampa Bay Times reportsthat singer Willie Nelson and fellow country singer Jerry Jeff Walker will be part of a benefit show for Got Your 6, a nonpartisan organization that wants to "bridge the civilian-military divide."

Journey's VIP-only show on Aug. 30 is expected to cap a week of entertainment at Liberty Plaza, a swank party zone proposed near the convention site. Booked earlier that week at the plaza are Lynyrd Skynyrd, Trace Adkins and Kid Rock.

Several musical acts are also expected during the convention kickoff party at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg.

The RNC will be held Aug. 27-30.
