The locally based Tex-Mex/country/Americana band Gringo Stew will commemorate the second anniversary of country singer-songwriter Merle Haggard’s death with a special concert that takes place on April 6 at the Music Box Supper Club. The day would have also been Haggard’s birthday.

“We will do a full set of our take on some of Merle’s best songs, and then a set of our stuff,” says guitarist Frank Scialdone. “We have guest performers that will sit in on some songs, such as Sam Getz from Welshley Arms and Jimi Vincent, a popular blues singer-guitarist from central Ohio as well as some others. It is going to be a really fun, special night.”

The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door.
