Play It Forward Benefit Concert 4/25 at Bobby Mackey’s in Wilder, KY


Play It Forward presents Play It Forward Goes Country on Sunday, April 25 at the legendary Bobby Mackey’s Music World in Wilder, Kentucky. The concert will take place from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The event will feature several regional Country music greats such as the Danny Frazier Band, the Dallas Moore Band, guitar virtuoso Scotty Anderson, Western Swing favorite Laura Hazelbaker and the BuckeyeRoos, singer/songwriter Jenn Harris, Blue Grass legend Terry Johnson and the Coal Train Band, plus an appearance by Gary Burbank.

“We’re excited about presenting a Country show – it’s an audience that we have not reached to date” says Play It Forward board president Tom Kaper. “It’s going to be a great show and completely different from our concert last year.” In March of 2009 Play It Forward packed the Madison Theater in Covington, KY with a 4-hour show featuring over a dozen acts including rock icon Peter Frampton.

Gary Burbank, former 700 WLW personality and comedian, is the founder of Play It Forward – a non-profit organization dedicated to helping career musicians in times of critical need. Mr. Burbank is looking forward to the show as well. “We’re so appreciative of Bobby Mackey and his staff for offering the place to us for the concert”. Gary will be presenting some of his original music, with guest appearances by the likes of Earl Pitts and the Right Reverend Deuteronomy Skaggs.
