All Star Tribute to Nick Nixon on Sunday, October 28

On Sunday October 28 at 1 p.m., local country western entertainers, as well as a couple guest stars from the Grand Old Opry, will show their support during an all star tribute and fundraiser for Nick Nixon at the Stegton Regency Banquet Center, 1450 Wall Street in St. Charles.
Nick is a legendary local country and western star and a treasured member of Coffee and Critique writing group.

In the 1970s Nick had more than a dozen top 100 hits on the Mercury label, including "Rocking in Rosalee's Boat," which climbed to No. 28 on the U.S. Country Charts. The Nick Nixon Tribute and Fundraiser is being held to help support Nick with medical expenses in his battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Headliners include: Johnny Rodriguez, Barb Allen, Leona Williams, Curtis Lyn Cook, Doc Holiday, the Well Hungarians, and an all star house band.

General admission tickets are only $10 per person and can be purchased at the door. Other highlights include a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction, a live auction, and some special surprizes.

For more information, or to make a donation, e-mail Elmo Linton, who planned and organized the event, at elmojllinton (at) wildblue.net.

Hope to see you there!

Absolutely! Nick is a treasure to C&C with his insightful critiques and his stories which just blow me away. He supports us all with encouragement and by example. He's a treasure to Country Music both as performer and songwriter, and for his columns in the newsletter, and for his mentorship of the up and coming. Be well, Nick! We're all with you.

Hi Marcia,
It was great to see you and Jim there. When I left they were turning away people at the door because they were over capacity.

Yes we were turned away. Nick tried sneak us in but it was so packed! What a wonderful crowd. When we left there were at least 3 other of our members turned away. Sad for us but great for Nick's tribute.
