The Pleasanton-based ALS CURE Project 501c3 charity is announcing the Outlaw Country concert at the Mary Stuart Theatre in Modesto on October 22, 2023 as part of the 2023 Country Fest to Cure ALS weekend of events. Outlaw Country will feature headliner John Driskell Hopkins of the Zac Brown Band who sadly, was recently diagnosed with ALS in 2022. Hopkins will bring his seven-piece John Driskell Hopkins band (www.johndriskellhopkins.com) with their classic driving country music sound complete with a fiddle and slide guitar. You can expect to be treated to renditions of Zac Brown Band hits. Opening the Outlaw Country show will be Nashville recording artist Josh Melton (www.facebook.com/JOSHUAMELTONMUSIC/) who will return to Country Fest to Cure ALS for the second year. Josh will be belting out songs with his smooth baritone voice from his newly released album titled “Bottom of the Lake.” Canadian country music star, Jason Blaine (www.jasonblaine.ca) will be the feature act, bringing his driving country music beat to the stage of the Mary Stuart Theatre and treating the audience to country hits and songs from his newly released album, including top 40 smash single “The Road That Raised You Up” and the eternally popular “Dance With My Daughter.” Always a fan favorite, thrilling fans with his vocals and guitar playing, this will be Jason’s third consecutive year playing Country Fest to Cure ALS.
The event will feature VIP tickets with a pre-concert meet and greet with the artists, a fantastic silent auction and live auction of amazing items, such as guitars autographed by the artists, and marvelous vacation and experience packages. All proceeds benefit the ALS CURE Project’s mission to cure ALS. The ALS CURE Project is an all-volunteer charity where 98% of every dollar goes directly to ALS research.
