We have two sets of photos for this gig. First is a collection of about 25 shots of the gig by Brad Mozley. The second group are some backstage photos. Unfortunately, we’ve forgotten who took the background photos. If that’s you, please let us know, so we can correct this. Either way you can view the pictures here.
May 22nd, 1997: City Boots – Enid, OK
Bill Ward headlined a concert benefitting the Mark Mankin trust. The trust has been set up to benefit Mark Mankin, and aspiring singer and video editor from Enid, who was critically wounded on January 21, 1997. Mankin has been left with considerable debts and the trust with the assistance of this concert will help him out until he is back on his feet.
