Jack Ingram at Ferris Wheelers Sept 14th


Texas-native Jack Ingram is set to headline a Kickoff Concert presented by Echelon – The National Young Adult Auxiliary of The Salvation Army – on Friday, Sept. 14, at Ferris Wheelers Backyard & BBQ.

Echelon is a community of diverse young adults collectively rising up, and mobilizing the next generation, to serve The Salvation Army through fellowship and networking, donations and fundraising, and service and volunteering. Collectively, Echelon serves The Salvation Army DFW Metroplex Command and its efforts to serve the homeless, the abused, veterans in crisis, addicts, senior adults, and at-risk children and families.

Echelon Dallas will be hosting the concert at Ferris Wheelers. All of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the organization.

The backyard patio will open at 6 p.m. and Raised Right Men, a Honky Tonk band from Denton, will kick off the show at 7 p.m. followed by Ingram who will take the stage at 8 p.m. Throughout a recording career that has spanned over 20 years, Ingram has maintained a reputation for uncompromising, personally charged song craft and energetic, charismatic performances. Ingram’s work has earned him a fiercely loyal fan base and an immense amount of critical acclaim.

Ingram won the Academy of Country Music’s “Top New Male Vocalist” award in 2008 and Tin Man, his single with Miranda Lambert and Jon Randall, won “Song of the Year” in 2018. Tin Man was also nominated for “Best Country Song” during the 2018 Grammy Awards and “Song of the Year” during the 2017 CMA Awards.


Guests must be 21 years or older to attend the show. General admission tickets are $15 for Echelon members and $25 for non-members. If you’d like to join Echelon, you can purchase an Annual Echelon Membership and a ticket to the concert for $100.
