Six tribute bands are joining together for a great cause called 97X Tribute Fest to CureSMA. On Saturday, September 28th the bands will perform a free show at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds to raise money for Spinal muscular atrophy.

For Electric Shock drummer Tom Ramirez, the cause hits close to home. “My daughter Madison has SMA and it’s a DNA disorder that effects the muscles and she has a very low muscle tone and strength but there’s no cure. There’s a treatment that halts the progression and I do feel someday hopefully in her lifetime that there is a cure”.
