New Casey Concert — 1/19 in Michigan

Radio Station 99.5 WYCD, Detroit’s Country, is running a contest and the grand prize is a concert by Casey James to be held on January 19, 2012.

Between November 21st and December 15th  (at 12 noon), the station will be collecting gently used cell phones from Wayne, Macomb, and Oakland County area high schools.  The school with the most donations will receive a free concert performance by Casey James at their school.

The phones will be donated to help support our troops through the GM Military Discount Program, Cell Phones for Soldiers.  Cell Phones for Soldiers is a non-profit group that collects gently used cell phones, recycles or refurbishes and resells them and uses the funds to purchase 60 minute pre-paid calling cards to send to soldiers serving abroad. This allows soldiers to keep in touch with their families and loved ones.

Lakeview High School collected the most cell phones and will host the special concert.  Read this article discussing their efforts.

    SO GLAD Detroit is finally getting with the program!!!

  2. Diana says:

    If Casey is coming to Michigan, hook him up PG Lacey at WNWN 98.5 in Kalamazoo.
    We want to see him too.

  3. Diana says:

    How do we get Casey to Kalamazoo, MI when he comes to Detroit? I’m a huge fan and have contacted WNWN 98.5 (PJ Lacey) and they would work on something. Can anyone help??? Detroit is a closed concert.

        I take it no one was interested in doing something else. There certainly is a group of people that would attend something. What a wasted trip. We will just have to count down the days until his album comes out. Thank God for the blog and the connections to sites it gives, or we all would be totally bummed.

    Detroit has a closed Concert…. HOWEVER, I wish the rest of us can see him.. We never get the chance… The Plymouth, Northville, Ann Arbor ares… how about it.. Casey ….

    MICHIGAN FANS, join us in the “requests” for Casey to do something public when he comes to Detroit the 19th. Why come this far and not take the opportunity to sing for some dedicated fans that can’t attend the school concert.
