(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Some St. Joseph bands got the chance to rock on at the Civic Arena Saturday afternoon.
Whiskey for the Lady, along with two other groups, performed at a benefit concert for the Performing Arts Association.

The association has been around for more than 30 years, and one of their goals is to strengthen performing arts in St. Joseph.

The concert not only helped do that, but it also raised money for the association.

"It's just to help our bottom line. This is towards the end of our season, it just helps pay the bills, can round it out, and start on to our next season," said Beth Sharp, the director of the Performing Arts Association.

This is the second year for the concert.

The Performing Arts Association hopes to raise $5,000.
