Local Musicians Come Together For Singer’s Mother

What stared off as a small benefit concert has quickly turned into an all day festival for local vocalist Jenna Lyn Melnicki from Jenna and the Soul Shakers. The event is to help raise funds for medical costs for Jenna’s Mother, who recently was diagnosed with Stage 4 Throat Cancer.

The Arts Center of the Ozarks has been gracious enough to host the event for over 20 artists who have agreed to perform for free, with three separate areas for music.

Food, beer and a silent auction are also planned at the event called “Dancing for Dianne, A Festival of Hope

Ticket are $20 ($25 at door) and include beer generously donated from Bike Rack Brewing Co and food provided by Big Sexy Food, Hapa’s Hawaiian Bar & Grill & BluesBoy’s BBQ

Silent auction includes items from Dela Deville’s Vintage, Tontitown Winery, Big Sexy Food and many, many more!


All proceeds go directly to Dianne Melnicki’s medical expenses
