Six Strings for a Cure Presents Mike Cooley at the Strand Theater
A Benefit Concert for the American Cancer Society
Marietta, GA: On November 28th, Marietta based law firm Johnson & Alday and Six Strings for a Cure will host a benefit concert at the historic Strand Theatre featuring Mike Cooley of the critically acclaimed band, Drive By Truckers.
Mike Cooley, also known by the moniker “the Stroker Ace” hails from Tuscumbia, Alabama. For the last 20 + years he’s made music and won over critics as co-front man of the Drive By Truckers. The Truckers are known for their incessant touring, lengthy shows and brilliant story telling songs, which often illustrate the perspective of the working-class southerner.
Like so many people Georgia, law partners Bobby Johnson and John Alday have both experienced the loss of a loved one due to cancer. Together, they have turned their grief into opportunity to help others who are battling cancer and seek to raise money to aid in the fight of this vile disease.
When the idea of the concert came to Bobby Johnson, he said “I pitched the idea to my wife and she supported it whole heartedly, even shouldering the load with John and I to make this event happen said. While it seemed foolhardy, we started working our contacts and connections and folks are receptive and willing to pitch in for the cause. We aren’t invincible, but we are carrying on the fight for Clay, Samantha, and countless others.”
As John Alday expressed, the date of the concert holds significant meaning to him because, “This November 29 would have been the 19th anniversary of our first date—when I took Samantha bowling and she got mad at me because she thought I was pitying her because of how bad she was. I am proud that Bobby let me be a part of this, because every dollar helps in researching how to combat cancer. Every dollar, every feeling, and every string.”
We are honored to host an event that will help an organization as noble as the American Cancer Society. We are elated to bring such an accomplished singer-songwriter like Mike Cooley to the Strand. This is as big a deal as old Billy Joe Royal playing the Strand.
