Gannon Adams and Travis Denning headline Macon benefit concert

Gannon Adams

Rock By The Sea, an organization that raises money for worthwhile causes through music, will present the star-studded holiday benefit concert at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 15, 2012, at The 567 Center For Renewal, 533 Cherry St., in Macon.

A portion of the proceeds ($10 a ticket) will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando, Fla.

Travis Denning, an emerging country/rock singer/songwriter from Macon, contributed the original song “Ballad Of Rudolph” to the October release of A Rock By The Sea Christmas: Volume Three, a charity CD series of Christmas classics and original tunes. The song has already garnered interest from Country Weekly, who noted the track as a “wry highlight” and from CDX, the world's most comprehensive delivery system of country music, who included “Ballad Of Rudolph” on their holiday country music sampler delivered to more than 2,000 country radio stations around the world.

 "My grandmother struggled through cancer for 7 years, so I know firsthand the effects of cancer on someone,” Denning said. “Any chance I can take to raise money and support fighting cancer, I take it. And there's going to be some great music being played, so what's not to love?"

Adams, originally from Mansfield, Ga., grew up rockin’ with artist like Merle Haggard, Travis Tritt, Mark Chesnutt and Garth Brooks. “It’s a great honor for me to be a part of the concert to raise money and awareness for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program,” said Adams. “I want to invite all my friends and fans in the Mid. Georgia area to come out to The 567 to enjoy an evening of great music, and to lend your support in the fight against cancer.”

The bill also includes Marty Evans and Lauren St. Jane and the Dead Westerns. All of the artists are available for interviews and appearances to promote the show.

Rock By The Sea is dedicated to planning and producing music festivals, events and products that raise money to financially assist deserving cancer charities that provide direct services to those in need. For more information visit www.RockByTheSea.org.
