Event Details

Country artist Josh Gracin will headline a day filled with music, food, arts and crafts to benefit families facing cancer at the second annual Rock the Plank outdoor concert, Saturday, August 4, 2018, on the campus of St. Peter Lutheran Church and School. The event kicks off at 2 p.m. with an arts and crafts market, food trucks and a second stage filled with local performers throughout the day and the main stage concerts starts at 7 p.m.

The featured performer at this year’s Rock the Plank is Michigan-born country singer Josh Gracin, who catapulted to fame after auditioning for the second season of the hit television series American Idol. Gracin, who was serving in the United States Marine Corps at the time, quickly became a fan favorite and won the hearts of viewers with his strong fourth place finish on Idol.  Also performing is Jalen Seawright, a Christian artist and local favorite, and other local artists to be announced.

Event proceeds, which are collected only in the form of sponsorships and donations, will benefit two Michigan-based cancer foundations: the New Day Foundation for Families, based in Rochester, and the ChadTough Foundation, based in Ann Arbor.  The debut concert event in 2017 raised $10,000 for the organizations.

With no admission cost, Rock The Plank will rely on sponsorships and donations to help support the work they do. Concertgoers must register in advance to receive a parking pass for one of the designated lots. To register for the event, go to the Rock The Plank Home Page at and click the “Register Now” button. Corporate and individual sponsorships, as well as arts and craft vendors, are now being sought for the event. Information is available on the website.
