Tickets for the all-ages show are

$5 in advance or $7 at the gate.

All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund that is assisting those in Mississippi and Louisiana devastated by the hurricane.

Going back to their roots and developing a local effort, Saving Jane is calling upon their friends, family and fans in Franklin Furnace and neighboring towns to spend a Saturday together in the spirit of social service and community.

Dodson co-organized the benefit with her former grade-school teacher Bill Stidham, who is now on staff at Green High.

The band's first single, "Girl Next Door" has been the No. 1 added indie band on radio for weeks running, and is now in the Top 60 nationally, working its way up fast.

On as many stations as Keith Urban and Black Eyed Peas, all across the country from northern California to mid-Mississippi, upstate New York to all points Midwest, Dodson and the band will not be ignored.

The band goes on national tour to support the album this year.
