Tomorrow beginning at 10 a.m., a loud, raucous, event will take place in support of our music editor, Chris Gray, and it couldn't be more appropriate.
Chris Gray Day opens with breakfast with the Allen Oldies Band and closes just south of 2 a.m. with Horseshoe on the Continental Club stage.
Below is the full lineup of bands as well as links to purchase tickets and information on auction items and special events. We hope to see you all there in support of Chris and his family.

In addition to all the bands (see below), there will be a silent auction with a ton of killer stuff. You can see a partial list of auction items with some photos here.
Also, please note that at 4:40 p.m. and 5:40 p.m. on the Continental Club stage there will be special presentations made by the city both to the Gray family and to the officers who helped to save Chris' life.
