Johnny Prill Music Hosts 10th Grandparents’ Day Concert
Courtney Manor Nursing Home will be venue for 10th free concert on Grandparents’
Day, September 10.
BAD AXE, MI, August 2, 2017 – The Johnny Prill Band will celebrate National
Grandparents’ Day on September 10, 2017 by hosting its 10th annual free concert at
Courtney Manor Nursing Home. The concert, at 1167 E. Hopson St, Bad Axe, is open to
the public and will run from 1:30-3:30 pm. Special guests will be members of the
Cavalrymen Quartet. The Quartet has had notable success in the charts nationwide.
“We invite you to come along and listen to the innovative sound of the Cavalrymen as they
sing classic southern gospel music along with cutting-edge progressive gospel,” says
Johnny Prill. “The Cavalrymen Quartet has been a driving force in southern gospel music
for over 60 years. If you love tight harmonies, acapella and traditional gospel quartet
music, then this concert is definitely for you!”
The Grandparents’ Day concert will open with a children’s choir, including some of
Johnny’s family members who will sing the official song of the day, Johnny’s now iconic
composition A Song for Grandma and Grandpa. Johnny performs alongside: his father
John on bass guitar, brother Christopher on violin, son Johnny (sound engineer), and
daughters, Misty, Sarah and Jennifer who will be singing and reading poems.
Johnny’s newest composition Grandkids (Angels at Play) was released earlier this year to
great reviews, triggering this message from Don Rickles:
“Had I known grandchildren were so much fun, I’d have had them first...”
When hosting his first Grandparents’ Day concert in 2008, Prill received messages of
encouragement and thanks from celebrity entertainers Betty White and Phyllis Diller. In
2010, renowned folk singer Pete Seeger congratulated Prill on his years of voluntary
service. In 2011, after 25 years of voluntarily entertaining the residents of Courtney Manor
Nursing Home, Prill won a “volunteer of the year” award from the Health Care
Association of Michigan. In 2016, Prill celebrated 30 years of volunteering at Courtney
Hosting concerts does not happen just from the efforts of one person and Johnny would
like to offer special thanks to Kay Peruski and the staff at Courtney Manor for all their
help and support.
