"I think this is a very cool idea and It's great to reach out to fans through a different platform, and we're really excited to be a part of Genghis Live," said Brandon Brown, guitarist for Don't Wake Aislin.
The first stop was in Dallas, TX at the Genghis Grill in the Uptown area off Lemmon Ave. where they also donated 15% of the event's sales to the North Texas Food Bank, making sure that those in need during the holiday season will have a meal to enjoy.
