Fundraiser concert for RacinePost this Sunday

Johnny Combs at the Brat Stop

Raytown Roadhouse is hosting a fundraiser concert for RacinePost on Sunday featuring a Johnny Cash Tribute by Johnny Combs.

The roadhouse is hosting two shows Sunday at 2 and 6 p.m. Tickets are $10. Proceeds benefit RacinePost and independent media in Racine. So not only is it a chance to hear some Johnny Cash tunes, have a few drinks and order off the Roadhouse menu, it's an opportunity to support the Post.

Any proceeds we receive from the show will go toward some exciting plans we have to expand the Post. If you support alternative media in Racine and new ways of sharing our city's unique and positive story, come on out for an afternoon of music, drinks and food. You can even ride El Diablo!

Click here for more on Johnny Combs, who has dedicated his musical career to performing Johnny Cash songs. A retired school custodian, Combs has played Cash tribute shows for more than 20 years. He started playing Cash songs while he was in the Army and realized his voice was similar to the country legend's. He used that gift to build a music career that's taken him across the country.

Sunday he'll play Cash songs, but Combs is also working on original tunes. He plans to release a CD of his songs, which he hopes carries on Cash's legacy.

  1. Unless the Racine Post is a not for profit, I don't understand this event.

  2. Anon 7:52, If you don't understand, we aren't about to help you out. Independent press can always use a boost and Racine needs to have something besides the poorly written Racine Journal.

  4. I think I'd better stay off El Diablo, and I never did like Johnny Cash. But I plan to support the Post -- and it's high time that I do, too!

  5. Wow, Shameful. I guess karas or Spodick will never get hammered in the Post if they ever deserve it.

    One less restaurant I will go to.

  6. 5:27 - I guess then all for profits business's should run fundraisers. Leave it to a Green Party guy and a crook to set it up.
