“And we just thought it would be encouraging for the families as well. And I also wanted to make mention that we’ve had some Gofundme pages to help the families, but it’s not helping all of the families.

  • Interstate Quartet
  • New Ground
  • The Martin

“They are featured and will be there with us. New Ground is going to be there, hometown favorite, the Interstate Quartet, I’m going to be there it’s going to be a lot of fun for the entire family," said Bell.

100% of the ticket sales will be donated to the account set up by the First National Bank of Scottsboro.
