Surviving Allison is coming home.

The six-person band is giving the area a chance to hear the talents of local artists with its "Home Town Show" on Saturday at Crosswind Ministries.

"It will be nice for us to come home and play with some of our friends," said Surviving Allison member Drew Gann. "Most of our shows are hours away, so it will be good to put on a show in Corinth."

Corinth talent will be well represented at the show. Love Brooklyn, a four-piece rock band, along with Maty Noyes and solo act Witt Lucas are all scheduled to perform.

Mason Jar Fireflies is slated to open.

"They are a great three-piece acoustic band from Memphis," said Gann.

Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door for the 6:30 p.m. event. For ticket information Gann said you can message any of the bands on Facebook or call or text Surviving Allison's manager John Vines at 662-255-2433.

"This will be a night to come out and show support for local music," said Gann. "It will be a show for all ages and perfect for the family."

Surviving Allison is comprised of Corinth's Chris Ekiss, keyboard and lead vocals; Andrew Ferrell, drums; Gann, bass; Mason Dowd, rhythm electric and backup vocals; Guntown's Preston George, lead electric; and Pickwick, Tennessee's Zach Jones, banjo and acoustic guitar.

"We play pop rock with a lot of folk influences," added Gann.

The band performs every weekend from Washington, D.C. to Baton Rouge, La. Later this month, the band will be performing at the Booneville Fall Festival and at Freddy T's in Pickwick.

In Nov., Surviving Allison will be part of the charity event "Only About the Music" – an event which will donate all proceeds to Autism Awareness – in Washington.
