This Friday night, the South’s gonna rise again as many former and founding members of Southern Rock’s biggest bands will perform together for the first time ever to help the Salvation Army restock local food pantry shelves across Southern West Virginia. And Friday afternoon, they’ll mingle with their biker buddies at Logan Motorcycle Sales at an afternoon autograph signing, which will be open to the public.
Key members of legendary southern rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet and Blackfoot will appear side-by-side in concert at the Coalfield Jamboree Theatre Friday, June 7, at 7 p.m. That afternoon from 2-3 p.m., band members will stop by Logan Motorcycle Sales on Rt. 44 South/Jerry West Highway to meet fans, pose for photos and sign autographs. Tickets for the Friday night concert will also be available for purchase during that time.
The star-studded Southern rock concert will feature guitarist and vocalist Mike Estes from Lynryd Skynrd, Blackfoot founding members Greg T. Walker (bass and vocals) and Charlie Hargrett (lead guitar and vocals), Jay Johnson (guitar and vocals), who has performed in both The Rossington Band and Blackfoot, and founding/former member Bruce Crump (drums) of Molly Hatchet.
The Salvation Army benefit concert is sponsored in part by Southern West Virginia Health System, a company of Lincoln Primary Care, LLC, Gaylock’s Wrecker Service and Southern Amusements Company.
Tickets are on sale now at The Coalfield Jamboree box office from noon-5 p.m. through June 6th and noon-7 p.m. June 7th.
