GRAFTON --  A summer concert isn't normally news. But when it's taking place behind the walls of a local prison, that's another story.

Channel 3's resident 'rock reporter' Monica Robins brings us the unusual circumstances.

It's not every day that the inmates at the Grafton Correctional Institution are entertained by live bands but this show is to thank them for their generosity.

This cause hit home with them -- the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Lorain County.

Some of the men have said that if this program had been around when they were boys, they wouldn't be here. Many of them even have kids in the program.

Local sponsors domated items such as pizza.

The inmates raised just over $3,000.
