LEVI RIGGS CHARITY CONCERT NOV 19 Aiding area students and young adults through five different organizations One of America’s top rising country singers, Levi Riggs, is staging a charity concert Saturday Nov 19 @ 7:30 pm @ the Long Center for the Performing Arts in Downtown Lafayette to benefit students and young adults of northern Indiana. Riggs, the 27 yr old artist & Purdue University honors graduate is teaming w/Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana, K-105 (WKOA-FM) of Lafayette, the Delta Delta Chapter of Sigma Chi Fraternity and the Joe Tiller Chapter of the National Football Foundation. They will try to raise more than $12,000 as Riggs performs songs from his two recent CD releases, both of which are receiving radio play around the county. The five entities receiving help from this concert are Junior Achievement (for students in Tippecanoe and surrounding counties), Dream Season (providing experiential opportunities for children and young adults with disabilities), Riley Hospital for Children, the NFF Scholarship Fund (for high school students in Northwest Indiana) and the 12th Boiler Scholarship Fund (for Purdue students). The concert, presented by AdvoCare, will be in the main auditorium of the historic Long Center, located at 111 North Sixth Street in Lafayette, where Riggs and his band will be the featured artists during a two-hour program. Leading off the evening will be Woodstove Flapjacks, a bluegrass group from Lafayette, and 16-year-old Karli Edging from Delphi. Reserved seat tickets available in advance for $15 while general admission tickets are $10. Checks should be made payable to National Football Foundation and sent to: NFF, 320 Dehart Street, West Lafayette, IN 47906. The NFF is a 501 C-3 foundation. Same prices will be in effect for walk-up customers at the door on Nov 19, if tickets remain. “Levi is on a roll!” says Shamus, Program Director of K-105 (WKOA). “The CD six packs have that ‘Nashville’ sound and I could see two or three hits possibly coming from these. We are very excited for Levi and look forward to hearing more songs from him on the radio.” His first country single, "F-150," reached #19 on the New Music Weekly Country Charts in 2010. Later that year, Riggs released a football-themed single, “Tailgate Time.” When the song became popular, Levi was asked to record custom versions for radio stations around the country including over 30 NFL and collegiate teams. That song was recently picked up as a sponsorship theme for a well-known tailgate grill company. To top it off, Levi was asked to perform for the 25th annual Leigh Steinberg VIP Super Bowl Party in Dallas, Texas, where more than 2,000 celebrities were entertained, including Randy Travis, Serena Williams, Earl Campbell, Bob Lilly, Reverend Run of Run DMC, and more. In a July concert in Evansville, Ind., Riggs opened for country star Justin Moore, energizing a crowd of more than 7,500. While in college, Levi sang lead tenor for the world-famous Purdue Varsity Glee Club for four years and, for the last four years, has been lead vocalist for The Overtones, a Gospel Quartet based in Lafayette. Since 2003, Riggs has logged more stage hours than virtually any artist in his age bracket, performing live over 600 times across the United States and overseas. He also was an Agricultural Ambassador, a National Agri-Marketing Semi-Finalist for 2007 and a member of the Homecoming Court that year. He is a member of the Purdue President’s Council and the Joe Tiller Chapter of the NFF. - NFF - (For more information about Levi Riggs and the Nov. 19 concert or to arrange for an interview, please contact Chuck Aaron at 765-714-1306 or caaron@crownartistmanagement.com OR Jim Vruggink at 765-427-3303 or jvruggink@purdue.edu )
