Tacoma, WA (PRWEB) March 16, 2013
Last evening, a benefit concert was put together and sponsored by Ignite-U and over 70 local businesses for the AUSA (Association of United States Army), a group which supports our troops. The live concert by Folsom Prism was at the Great American Casino in Lakewood, WA. 100% of the cover charge was donated to AUSA.
Founders of Ignite-U, Kieran and Sherri Murry, brainstormed the idea to have monthly concert events to raise funds for local community causes and connect the people in the community while making a difference to local businesses in the Pacific Northwest. The next concert will be on April 18th and benefit the Emergency Food Network. The Ignite-U sponsors are already ramping up and excited about the opportunity to help.
This first concert by the locally famous Folsom Prism offered fans both a traditional and a modern look at the man in black... Johnny Cash. Folsom Prism is a Johnny Cash Tribute Band playing bars, clubs, casinos, festivals and corporate events in the Pacific Northwest region.
Based in Bonney Lake, Washington... Folsom Prism features established local musicians Corey Wilkins (as the Man in Black himself), Shane Gillispie on lead guitar, Mike Sprayberry on bass and Mark Monteiro on Drums. If you are a Johnny Cash fan, you'll appreciate both the traditional and modern views of Johnny through the live performances of Folsom Prism.
Ignite-U sponsors were proud to participate in the benefit concert for the AUSA. Since 1950, the Association of the United States Army has worked to support all aspects of national security while advancing the interests of America's Army and the men and women who serve.
