Music has the power to unite people of all races and creeds for any number of reasons. Whether it's simply to be entertained, or something more noble like assisting those in need. Or in the case of the annual "Music Makes a Difference" at Lamasco Bar & Grill on Franklin Street, both.

The benefit begins at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 4th, and will continue throughout the night until the bar closes at 2:00 a.m. Admission is only $7.00 at the door, and gets you a full night of great music from some of the best local and regional bands in the area, including:

*Issac is an amazing 10-year-old fiddle player from Boonville.

Last year's event raised nearly $1,800, and the goal for this year is to double that amount.

Additional donations will be accepted outside the admission fee. For more information, visit Lamasco Bar & Grill on Facebook.
