Jackson Gillies presents The Something That Matters Concert – HS Awareness/Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Date: April 24, 2017

Time: Doors open at 6:30 opener @ 7:30 show @ 8:00


What started as a senior year high school project has blossomed into a Something That Matters – HS Awareness – Hidradenitis Suppurativa Concert. Jackson was going to have a House Concert and his teacher, Regina Freking encouraged him to “think big” and have it at a larger venue. The show will be at SoHo Restaurant and Music Club and the gig is growing each day!

There is no cure for HS and it It has been called The Hidden Plague. Abscesses in lymph glands areas discourage sufferers to discuss it. Jackson speaks about it openly in hopes to help himself and others!! Come and support Jackson. The music will be hot!!!! A special performance by Kenny Loggins!
