Wanda Jackson. Need we say more? The First Lady of Rockabilly and The Queen of Rock hasn’t performed solo in three years, but she’ll do exactly that at a benefit concert for the Start Helping Impacted Neighborhoods Everywhere (SHINE) Foundation, a charitable organization that supports programs encouraging youth community service. The outdoor performance takes place during the larger SHINE event, which runs from 6 to 10 p.m. May 15 at The Greens Country Club, 13100 Green Valley Drive. Admission is free, but a minimum $10 donation is requested. Call 751-6266 or visit thegreenscc.com.
