PHOENIX, AZ, Tuesday, March 8, 2022 - In the ever growing divide between Democrats and Republicans, one brand that is making great strides in bringing America back together. American Premium Vodka has initiated a nationwide fundraising campaign to donate one dollar from every bottle sold to support American Legion Veteran Charities. American Premium Vodka will launch their new brand with hopes of closing gaps in society by paying tribute to US Military Veterans and helping us all remember, “How Great It Is, to be American!”


APV President Mark Gus Scott exclaims, "I find it criminal that not one brand in the vodka market celebrates America. As a Proud Son of the American Legion Pat Tillman Post #117, I could not stand by and allow a destructive element within our society to divide our country any longer!” Scott, who gained worldwide notoriety as a member of the #1 MTV rock group TRIXTER, speaks passionately about his alliance with the American Legion and his hope for unity in the US. “The People of our country possess true American Spirit, as does American Legion Pat Tillman Post #117 Commanders Steve Lackey and Art Jaramillo, American Legion Rider Presidents Don Long and Scot Sobieski, as well as myself. I urge all Americans to join us in celebration to wish a very Happy Birthday to the American Legion with the launch of American Premium Vodka!" The Official American Premium Vodka Launch Party will take place on Saturday, March 19th, 8pm at The American Legion Pat Tillman
Post #117 located at 3230 E. Thunderbird Road, Phoenix, AZ 85032. Admission is FREE – Donations Accepted. APV President Scott will be conducting a Launch Party Tour of American Legion Posts across the country to raise money for veteran charities and in support of his new brand.

American Legion Pat Tillman Post #117 Commander Steve Lackey notes, “American Premium Vodka is an ally in our relentless pursuit of fostering Americanism. The efforts we all make as members of the Legion breed something special throughout our communities and pay special tribute to real American Heroes – Our Veterans!”

Chartered by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic veteran’s organization, The American Legion focuses on service to veterans, service-members and communities and evolved from a group of war-weary veterans of World War I into one of the most influential nonprofit groups in the United States. With nearly 2 million members and 12,000 posts in communities throughout the United States, the American Legion is the nation's largest wartime veterans service organization raising over 90 million dollars annually to fund its extensive charity portfolio.

The words American Legion tie the whole together for truth,
remembrance, honor, service, veterans affairs and rehabilitation, children and youth, loyalty, and Americanism.  The Legion provides life-changing assistance and guidance for veterans, military personnel, their families and communities in thousands of ways every day around the world. Help comes in the form of personal assistance, cash grants, donated goods, disaster relief, labor, networking, volunteerism and advocacy.



"Give It To Me Good!" Coming May 2020

After the success of his vocal debut, "With You", Mark Gus Scott kicks down the door to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Trixter's biggest #1 MTV Hit!  "Give It To Me Good" re-releases on Thursday, May 14th but this time, Mark takes it one step further.


"I remember the first time I heard the guitar riff and all of the energy of the song came rushing through me. I couldn't control myself!" exclaims Mark. That song went on to be a #1 Hit for Eight Weeks Straight… “Now that’s a party!"


The new rendition of “Give It To Me Good” is electrifying and groovy, exhibiting a new sound that Mark calls "Power Country", a mix of hard rock and country music. Co-Produced by Mr. Scott’s musical ally Lou Piccadaci, the song’s sound production is sonically stellar and takes the listener on a musical journey from country six-string acoustic to a rockin’ powerhouse hoedown that won’t let you quit stomping your feet. Signature melodies can be heard behind Mark’s powerful lead vocal and pulverizing drumbeat to which millions have danced to around the world.  Mr. Piccadaci defines his value not only as an engineer, but with his superior guitar performance throughout the track.


"For the past few years, I got away from rock ‘n roll and made a lot of music that touched my heart. But one thing is for sure, I miss rocking and nothing is better than playing music that truly drives you and an audience to throw your hands in the air and dance!"


"Give It To Me Good" releases Worldwide on Thursday, May 14th. CDs / Downloads are available through Apple iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Music, CD Baby and everywhere downloads are available. Personally Autographed CDs are available for purchase at

"With You..."  Mark's Lead Vocal Debut

If any man had a song in his heart, it would certainly be Mark Gus Scott. After rocking the world with MTV hair band TRIXTER for almost three decades, Mark steps out from behind the drums to stand center stage and share something very special. The rock star turned adult contemporary solo artist's latest release, "With You..." is an emotional, passionate and heartfelt ballad the likes of which will never be expected by his ever-growing constituency of fans.

“For the past few years, I have pursued music outside of Rock and Roll in hopes of touching just one person. To be on the receiving end of so much love and support from so many around the world, it has truly touched me! That’s a gift I never expected,” says Scott.  I wrote this song just to tell one person how deeply I feel for her.  Now I want everyone to hear it.,,”

"With You..." combines an 80's-style power ballad piano riff, symphonic orchestration and powerful melodic hooks all providing a platform for deep emotional poetry that truly moves the soul. This song is Mark's debut as a lead vocalist and listeners will not be ready for the soaring and soulful hook-filled melodies backed by enormous “angelic” background harmonies; definitely a huge surprise coming from one of rock's hardest-hitting drummers.

"With You..." releases on Thursday, September 12th and promises to deliver something very special to today's musical landscape; adding a great deal of credibility to Mark's platinum sales status. Downloads are available through Apple iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Music, CD Baby, Pandora, iMusica, Spotify, iHeartRadio and everywhere downloads are available.  Personally autographed CDs are available through Mark’s website at



A long-standing member of the philanthropic community, Mark Gus Scott continues his charitable crusade by joining forces with arguably the greatest charity to make an impact around the world, Hope 4 Kids International. All proceeds from "Ave Maria", the first single from his latest solo effort, "Christmas Miracle", will be donated to providing hope and helping dreams come true for some very special children all around the world.
