ELVIS Playing For Good

The King is Back: Paws Humane & YOGC

Playing for Good has established itself in recent years as a formidable vehicle for producing and promoting benefit concerts that feature a variety of the most talented musicians in the Chattahoochee Valley. For some 30-plus years, Buddy Nelms and his team at The Loft have hosted an exceptional venue for the best live music in Columbus.

Playing for Good creates yet another stage where today's local musicians can present their talents to the entire community while supporting the efforts of local not-for-profit organizations. Previous concerts have benefitted both  MercyMed and NeighborWorks.

For this year's second event Playing for Good is partnering with Paws Humane Society and The Youth Orchestra of Greater Columbus (YOGC) to produce two benefit concerts on May 18, 2024. "The King is Back," brings Elvis Presley 2021 Ultimate Tribute Artist Patrick Dunn to The Springer Opera House stage for a rock & roll night filled with orchestral arrangements of Elvis' greatest hits.  

The Springer stage will be filled with musicians from the Youth Orchestra of Greater Columbus, performing alongside professional musicians from the Chattahoochee Valley, and conducted by the show's creator, Dr. Bryan English, of Dallas, TX. A 4-piece rhythm section & back-up singers, along with a special appearance by local gospel quartet, Solid Rock, will recreate the unforgettable sound of Elvis in concert.  

All performers have graciously donated much of their time and talents to this worthy cause and we are asking you to join them in raising much needed funds for these two incredible organizations.
