 The 39350 Music Fest will offer a full night of live entertainment for a good cause next Saturday at the historic Ellis theatre.

              

The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $20. All sales will go to benefit the Boys and Girls Club.

              

The headliners will be Billy Prine of Nashville along with guitar virtuous Michael Dinallo.

              

“Billy Prine comes from a music family and has been in the business for years,” Jeff Stewart, a former member of the Pearl River band and now a local radio personality, said. “He has been to Philadelphia two or three times. He put on an impromptu concert at Mike and Tracy Tinsley’s house once and made a lot of friends. He loves coming to Philadelphia.”

              

Several other local acts will be featured, including Stewart and his band, SoulStew.

              

“This is something we do as friends to have fun,” Stewart said. “Ken Fleming and I and some friends from Jackson put the band together. We will play for about 45 minutes to make sure the sound system is working right.”

              

Jeff Reynolds, a member of the band, is bringing the sound equipment and doing the sound to hold operation costs down for organizers.

              

As for Stewart, he loves playing in the Ellis.

              

 

“Every local musician likes to play in that stage,” Stewart said. “When I was a kid, I would go to movies there and think about singing in the Ellis. I was a dreamer.”

              

Another local singer and picker, Treye Evans, will perform during the night.

              

Also, Amy Lott will lead the Boys and Girls Club choir in a special performance during the program.

              

“This is the first time for 39350 Music Fest and we are hoping that this is only the beginning,” Stewart said. “Our local community sponsors really have stepped up to make this show possible. Because of our sponsors, every dollar from ticket sales goes to the Boys and Girls Club.”
