Billy Elton Benefit Concert

Billy Elton is excited to be returning to the Neuqua Valley High School Auditorium on Friday, March 13, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. to perform a benefit concert.  Billy Elton is a band that celebrates the music of Billy Joel and Elton John and features our own Reid Spears on piano and lead vocals, as well as fellow Neuqua music staff members Ryan Rimington on keyboards and Brad Pfeil on acoustic guitar and harmonica.

As with their previous six appearances at Neuqua Valley, the purpose of the event is to benefit funds created in memory of some fondly remembered Neuqua Valley teachers.  The concert started as a means to benefit the memorial funds of Tom Schlegel and Dave Scheidecker.  In 2016, one more teacher's memorial fund was added -  Leslie Baumann, an English teacher and dance instructor who passed away in 2014 after a battle with cancer.  The previous concerts have raised over $20,000.

If you have never seen the band before, you can get a taste of what to expect here

Tickets are only $10 in advance, $15 at the door, and are general admission.  They can be purchased directly online

Be ready to rock the house as the band puts on an energetic show and leaves you with an unforgettable night!"
