Headline acts include Joe Gransden and his Big Band with Big Mike Geier in this fifth annual fundraising event that will benefit Forsyth County’s middle and high school arts and music programs. Master of ceremonies will once again be Scott Slade, host of Atlanta's Morning News on AM750 and now 95.5FM, Newstalk WSB. A special performance by Simple Alliance from Music Matters’ Rock U will start the concert, and a spectacular fireworks show will close it.
