Brandon lost his battle with Glioblastoma on Feb. 15, 2017. People who knew Brandon knew the importance he placed on family and education. The event will raise money for a scholarship that will be given out to a Pike County High School senior each year in memory of Brandon.  Tickets can be purchased at xorbia.com/e/barnbash/2017. Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. ’We believe in the healing power of music and hope this year’s event begins a long-running tradition,’ said Michael Pierce, co-owner of Double P Grading. ‘Brandon Brown meant a lot to this community. He didn’t use cancer as an excuse to be lazy or to give up. He kept being a dad, a husband, a teacher, a coach and everything else he could, with the mindset of ‘˜It’s all good!’ All in all this is just a good opportunity to help a great family.’
