LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The 2nd Annual SHINE-ola benefit concert is set to take place on Saturday, July 22, 2023, at the White Water Tavern located at 2500 W. 7th St. in Little Rock, AR 72205. The event, organized in partnership with Methodist Family Health, aims to raise funds to support the organization’s mission of providing care and assistance to Arkansas children and families facing mental health, behavioral, and emotional challenges.
The concert will feature an incredible lineup of talented artists who have generously volunteered their time and talent to support the cause. Performers include Jason Lee Hale and The Personal Space Invaders, Bill Holloway, Runaway Planet, Steve Davison, The Mark Simpson Trio, Amy Garland, Brian Nahlen Band, The Salty Dogs, Cherise Martini and the Peacekeepers, and Tommy Branch, Jr. With their musical performances, they hope to create an enjoyable experience for the audience while raising awareness and funds for Methodist Family Health.
