Johnny Williams CD Release: Gotcha Covered Benefit Concert
Johnny's Speakeasy, 2923 Dexter Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan
I'm organizing and performing in a benefit concert to support the SAVE THE GREEN RIVER SCHOOLHOUSE GoFundMe campaign (https://www.gofundme.com/greenriverschoolhouse). The concert celebrates the release of Johnny Williams' CD "Gotcha Covered" created to help support the Schoolhouse fundraising project. It is a double CD of Johnny's original songs covered by artist friends who have performed at Johnny's Speakeasy and/or the Green River Schoolhouse. The lineup is incredible including: Shari Kane & Dave Steele, Billy King, Bill Edwards, Chris Buhalis, Dave Boutette & Kristi Davis and many more---all performing the songs we recorded for the CD. The Sidemen Band will be on hand to perform and back up the CD lineup as well. All proceeds to go to support the Green River Schoolhouse fund. Tickets available at the door. Suggested price $30. CDs will be on sale at the event. For more info visit Green River Schoolhouse on Facebook.
I look forward to this summer rite of passage every year, playing the summer Market Music Series in beautiful downtown Stockbridge under the gazebo in the Town Square. I'll be there 5:30 - 7 p.m. with a few friends joining me. No cover. Outdoor seating provided.
