Johnny Prill Band Hosts Ninth Annual Free Outdoor Concert
Band offers free concert to celebrate National Grandparents’ Day.
BAD AXE, MI, July 25, 2016 – The Johnny Prill Band will celebrate National
Grandparents’ Day on September 11 by hosting its ninth annual free outdoor concert
at Courtney Manor Nursing Home. Additionally, the band will be celebrating 30 years
of volunteer work at Courtney Manor. Johnny is Courtney Manor’s longest running
volunteer, volunteering musical entertainment monthly for the past 30 years.
“I owe a special thank you to Kay Peruski and the staff at Courtney Manor for all the
help and support that make this concert possible,” says Johnny.
The concert, located at 1167 E. Hopson St. in Bad Axe, is open to the public and will
run from 1:30-3:30 pm. Rock Harley, a Johnny Cash tribute artist, will be a featured
special guest. Rock Harley's uncanny physical resemblance, coupled with vocals that
yield the undeniable presence of Cash, provides a hauntingly realistic performance of
the "Man in Black.” The show will open with Miguel DelRosario singing A Song for
Grandma and Grandpa, Johnny’s original composition and the official song of National
Grandparents’ Day. Johnny will be performing with various family members: father John
(bass guitar), brother Christopher (violin), and son Johnny (sound engineer). His three
daughters, Misty, Sarah and Jennifer will be singing and reading inspirational poems.
“National Grandparents’ Day is a wonderful time to reflect on the importance of our
nation’s grandparents and the vital roles they play in our lives,” says Prill.
Johnny Prill began volunteering at 12 years of age, playing the accordion in local
nursing homes. He received an award from Courtney Manor in 2008 for his services
entertaining residents; together with his band, Johnny hosts a Christmas Eve concert
there annually. In 2011 he received the “Volunteer of the Year Award” from the Health
Care Association of Michigan, marking 25 years of volunteering at Courtney Manor.
In addition to numerous awards, Johnny has received messages of encouragement and
appreciation from such famous names as Betty White, Pete Seeger and Barbara Mandrell
and also from state senators, the state governor and US senators. Johnny’s songs have
also been featured in numerous publications including Country Weekly, The Las Vegas
Weekly, The Detroit News, and The Detroit Free Press.
