*** We are staying abreast of the Utah COVID-19 guidelines and hoping for the best! We will not sell tickets until Oct 1st. At that time we will determine how to handle social distancing based on Utah COVID-19 guidelines. Once we know how many numbers we have registered we will determine how many concerts to have & how to plan for the event. The Utah Food Bank is in desperate need of our help so I am hopeful we will be able to proceed as planned or with minimal adjustments. If we are unable to host our event all deposits will be refunded.***
