  • The Will Rock For Food Concert Series is very pleased and proud to bring the legendary DENNIS DEYOUNG and the music of STYX to the Marion Cultural and Civic Center on Saturday, July 29th at 7:00pm, for this year’s fundraiser for the Marion Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen! This annual event continues to be a great vehicle that enables us to serve those in our community who need it the very most.

    DENNIS DEYOUNG is a founding member of the band STYX, and singer and songwriter of 7 of the band’s 8 TOP TEN HITS. His live show showcases all of the STYX Greatest hits spanning the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s, including LADY, BABE, COME SAIL AWAY, TOO MUCH TIME ON MY HANDS, MR.ROBOTO, RENEGADE, BLUE COLLAR MAN, SUITE MADAME BLUE and more.

    Opening for Dennis DeYoung will be local favorites, “The Jeff Pritchett Project”. This fine group of talented musicians have supported the Will Rock for Food series, since its’ inception 6 years ago. Always full of surprises , they may perform anything from the Temptations to Led Zepplin in their performance, with stellar accuracy.

    In addition, patrons will have the opportunity to support this great cause at the silent auction, which will be held the evening of the event in the Civic Center lobby. Past items have included autographed rock and roll memorabilia, autographed sports items, unique gift ideas and “experience” oriented packages, like a helicopter ride and dinner for 2. There will be something for everyone available!

    This is the only fundraiser that the Marion Food Pantry holds each year to support its’ efforts to feed the hungry in Marion. Not only are we excited to raise these much needed funds, but we are also excited to be able to bring such a talented group of musicians together as a token of our appreciation to the Southern Illinois community as a gesture of thanks for their support.
