Concert Promoter Brook Hannon states: “Our goal is to produce an event that has a youthful impact and is more relatable, by bringing in artists and bands that they’re seeing or hearing on TV, Radio, YouTube or at the big out-of-town concerts. In addition, we want to use this platform to build awareness and provide immediate resources to organizations like Habitat for Humanity.”


Everyone is urged to attend the concert and lend their support to Habitat for Humanity. This event is sponsored by Foothills Crawlspace, Stars Creative, Diamond B Energies and with additional support from WSSL 100.5 “Whistle 100”


All tickets will be sold at the gate.  ATMs are available at Tryon Federal and Sunoco near the venue. Cash only at the gate the day of the event, no checks accepted. Visit and for more information.
