Music Fest will feature local talent

In less than three weeks, the Syrup City will play host to an evening of rock, rhythm and blues during the first Annual JRB&GC Music Fest.
Presented by Hobson Chevrolet-Buick, the Music Fest will feature live performances by Otis Redding III, Johnnie Marshall and Ralph Roddenbery with proceeds going to benefit the Jackie Robinson Boys & Girls Club of Cairo and Grady County. The evening will take place at the Cairo High School Auditorium, 455 Fifth St. S.E., on Saturday, Aug. 26, 7 p.m.
“I am excited to have the opportunity to be a part of the first Annual JRB&GC Music Fest. This event will be our first music fest venture, and also the first time these three renowned musicians will be coming together to support a common cause.” said Stephen Francis, JRB&GC director. “Our community is fortunate to have Otis Redding III, and Grady County’s own Ralph Roddenbery and Johnnie Marshall. This is a worthy cause that supports our children, so I hope to see you at this enjoyable event.”
Tickets are $20 and available for purchase at Capital City Bank, Center Drugs, Miss Myrt’s and the Chamber of Commerce. Tickets may also be purchased online at mnw-bgc.org. Contact Jackie Robinson Boys & Girls Club at 378-3099 or visit mnw-bgc.org for more information.
