Two Michigan based bands, 3RD° Burns and Tripp ‘N’ Dixie, will open the 2019 Ally Challenge Community Concert for Multi-platinum singer/songwriter Dierks Bentley.

 The concert is Saturday, Sept. 14 on the driving range at Warwick Hills Golf & Country Club in Grand Blanc following the second round of competition at The Ally Challenge presented by McLaren. Concert gates open at 4 p.m. with college football showing on the big screen. 3RD° Burns will take the stage at 5:30 p.m. and Tripp ‘N’ Dixie at 6:30 p.m. Headliner Dierks Bentley is scheduled to perform beginning at 8:30 p.m.

 3RD° Burns is part of the Young Musicians Community (YMC), a 501c3 non-profit organization that gives young people the opportunity to experience God’s gift of music. The program, now entering its 15th year, teaches youth ages 10 to 18 the art of playing an instrument, singing techniques, and stage performance in a classic rock band setting.

 Detroit based, American rock band Tripp ‘n’ Dixie formed in the summer of 2008 with vocalist Rozz Rosales, guitarist Adam Cross, and Scotty King on drums as the heartbeat of the original lineup. Adding guitarist Mike Gonchoroff, bassist Brian Richter, and Conner Williams on keyboards has created a wall of sound that blends old-school classic and modern rock into an explosion of sound inspired by the many influences of the members.
