John Schneider hosts concert to benefit Louisiana flood victims

Thanks to Phyllis for passing along this press release ...


Branson, MO – John Schneider (Bo Duke of "The Dukes of Hazzard") will be hosting a benefit concert at 7 p.m. on Sunday, August 28 at the Starlite Theater in Branson, Missouri. Schneider will be joined in this performance event by local entertainers Jason Pritchett and The Steel Horses, as well as Johnny Lee to raise funds to support Louisiana flood victims.

In a statement issued on Monday, John Schneider said, “I am very excited about going back to Branson! I haven’t been there to perform in over 30 years, [and] there has been a big hole in my soul where Branson used to be.”

City of Branson Mayor Best added “I am very excited to welcome my old friend, John, back to Branson, and I am humbled by his outpouring of support to victims of these tragic circumstances.”

Schneider relates to the loss experienced by his Louisiana neighbors, having two studios heavily damaged by previous floods. While his success afforded him the opportunity to rebuild, his heart goes out to those less fortunate who are unable to fund a new beginning after losing everything.

In addition to the concert, a silent auction will be held, offering a variety of items to be sold to the highest bidder. Area businesses interested in donating items to support this fundraising effort are asked to contact event coordinator, Tina Richardson at 417-335-1707 or by email at

The cost of admission is by donation, with suggested minimum of $20 per ticket. Doors open at 6 p.m. The money raised will be given to Convoy of Hope to extend to flood victims.

This event has been made possible by the generosity of Convoy of Hope along Starlite Theater, Summerwinds Resorts, HCW, and Clear Entertainment and Marketing Group.
