Froggy 92.9 has teamed up with Epicenter to create Country For The County: A North Bay Fire Concert. On Saturday March 3rd, country fans will fill Epicenter’s “300 Room” event space to watch acoustic performances from 5 great California-based artists: Pete Stringfellow, McKenna Faith, Ryan Scripps, The Scotty Mac Band and Lindsay Bruce.
TIX IN THE INITIAL ON SALE ARE NOW SOLD OUT. ADDITIONAL TIX MAY BECOME AVAILABLE, text RELIEF to 77000 TO GET TEXT ALERTS SHOULD ADDITIONAL TIX BECOME AVAILABLE. THANK YOU SONOMA COUNTY!!
“We wanted to do a thing,” says event creator and Froggy afternoon personality Dano. “We’ve been very involved with relief efforts, but we haven’t actually done what we do best, a concert. All 5 of these artists are good friends, and each approached me and asked how they could help. So I said let’s pull out the acoustic guitars and raise some money.”
Artists will give stripped down, acoustic performances. Fans are encouraged to grab a beverage and sing along to 6 hours of country music! The entire Froggy 92.9 family, Rob & Joss, Splash and Dano will also be in the house ;-).
Net proceeds from the event will benefit Community Foundation Sonoma County’s Resilience Fund, which benefits fire victims. Dano is encouraged, “Everybody involved is stepping up and donating their time and resources to this event, so we hope to cut at least a $10,000 check to CFSC when the night’s through.”
Epicenter, Healdsburg Signs and Vicci Moto Apparel are also on board as event sponsors. “So so so so generous. They all literally said ‘What can we do to help?” Dano continued. “It’s also been my dream to write a press release where I’m quoted 5 times, and I think I just hit my mark.”
One item which will definitely add to the fundraising total- Country Summer meet and greets. During intermissions, attendees can participate in a live auction for backstage passes to Country Summer 2018 to meet and take a photo with Toby Keith, Little Big Town or Florida Georgia Line.
Tickets have sold out in the initial on sale, but text RELIEF to 77000 right now to get text alerts about the show, including details on additional ticket releases should additional tickets become available.
