Rock concert series in Staunton
The Goodson Brothers rock group performed at Staunton's Wharf District last night, part of the "Shakin' 2008" concert series to raise funds for (and awareness of) the Central Shenandoah Crimestoppers program. The Goodsons played a wide range of classic rock tunes, such as "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap," as well as a couple country rock songs. Band leader Danny Goodson sounded just like AC-DC's original lead vocalist Bon Scott. The turnout for this event was great, with at least 500 fans of all ages. Similar concerts are planned for every Thursday night for the next three months, except July 3. Among the sponsors are Domino's Pizza, StellarOne, Detamore Printing, 98.5 Rock, Kroger, the Byers Street Bistro, Boston Beanery, and Comcast. It's yet another example of the wide range of cultural opportunities in the "Queen City" of Staunton, and of the broad commitment to bettering the quality of life in this community.
