Get Your Ticket to See Damon Johnson Perform in PTK Concert for a Cause

Sauk Valley Community College’s international honor society, Phi Theta Kappa, will host “Concert for a Cause” February 25 at 6:30 p.m. in the Starlight Theater in Sterling. The main performer, back by popular demand, will be singer/songwriter Damon Johnson.

Johnson has given much of his time as guitarist to the rock legend, Alice Cooper. Currently he is playing for Thin Lizzy and doing several shows with his own band, Brother Cane. Johnson has also released multiple acoustic albums as well as written songs for individuals such as Carlos Santana, Steve Nicks, and Sammy Hagar to name a few.

“Concert for a Cause” will also feature local bands Terry Cox and Shagwagon. Participants will also be able to bid at the silent auction during the concert that will include signed Damon Johnson, Alice Cooper and other band memorabilia as well as a number of items donated by local businesses to help raise money as well. All proceeds will be donated to the United Way of Sauk Valley.

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling Ben Owen at 815-590-6936. For more information on “Concert for a Cause,” contact Steve Nunez, Phi Theta Kappa advisor, at 815-835-6263.
