Johnny Prill Music Hosts 11th Grandparents Day Concert
Courtney Manor Nursing Home will be the venue for 11th annual free concert on
Grandparents Day, September 9.
The Johnny Prill Band will celebrate National Grandparents Day on September 9, 2018
by hosting their 11th 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 guest will be Harmony On Tap, a Barbershop Quartet.
Harmony On Tap, based in the Tri-City area, has been performing together for over six
years and their four part a cappella harmony has been enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
The Grandparents Day concert will open with a children’s group, 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 in 2017 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 volunteer
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 2018, Prill celebrates 32 years of volunteering at Courtney
"I owe a special thank you to my family, Kay Peruski and the staff at Courtney Manor for
all the help and support that make this concert possible," says Johnny.
