Johnny Cash tribute to help local schools

“Cold Hard Cash” is coming to town and that’s exactly what they’re hoping to raise for a couple local schools. The act pays homage to the era when country star Johnny Cash was touring with the Tennessee Three and playing Folsom and San Quentin prisons.

The act tours the United States reviving the music of Johnny Cash and in 2013, when long-time friends Mike Hengehold and Sean Riebli saw the act, they thought of school music programs on the decline and how to help. They persuaded the act to include Sonoma on their West Coast swing in 2014 and the act will be playing in Sonoma at the Moose Lodge tonight, June 6, for a show that starts at 8:30 p.m.

Doors open at 7 p.m. Portions of the proceeds from the evening will benefit the Sonoma Valley High School Band to fund new instruments and to St. Francis School, where a portion of proceeds will go toward school athletics.

Tickets are $35, and to acquire them in advance, point your browser to paypal, with the payment going to coldhardcashsonoma@gmail.com. For more info about the evening, contact Sean Riebli at 704-6467 or Mike Hengehold at 415-516-1275.

Running on the success of the previous shows, where funds to air condition the historic building were raised, the Sonoma Valley Woman’s Club is once again presenting Plan Be for a dance party, this time to help with landscaping with the hopes of renting the venue for weddings and parties.
