Joey Onkst Tribute Concert Was a Tremendous Success!

A tribute concert to our great friend Joey Onkst was held on October 20th at 3 Brothers Deli in Murfreesboro. Many of our students, past and present, performed songs in honor of this lost member of our Johnny Guitar's family. We packed the place and, I think, made Joey proud.

All the performances were beyond expectations. Emotions were high and

the true talent showed through. It was Terri's and my proudest moment since we opened the shop.

CDs including all the performances are available at Johnny Guitar's Music Studio. We are asking only that you donate to Joey's Scholarship Fund in return for your CD. The fund will assist young musicians in covering start-up lesson costs as well as recognize exceptional students demonstrating the drive and passion for music that Joey always exhibited.

We'd like to thank Eric at 3 Brothers for providing the excellent venue for our celebration as well as the parents and students who attended and participated in the event. Dan and Janie Onkst asked that we pass along their sincere appreciation for the excellent music and the hard work that always goes into producing such an event. As Dan told me at the concert, "Words can't describe how much it meant to them."
