Donations will go towards performance fees, lodging, transportation, booking venue space and all other expenses for his crew of 5.
A donation of $16 or more gets you admission to the concert featuring smooth jazz saxophonist Mike Phillips and Dwagie and his talented group of associated rap artists. Event information will be sent to the email address you provide. *This event is 21 and over only with a valid photo ID required at the door.
