VICTORY FOR VETS 2017 MUSIC FEST
SOUTHERN ROCK LEGENDS MOLLY HATCHET TO PERFORM VETERAN BENEFIT
When you think of Molly Hatchet, you think of one of southern rock’s top and longest-lasting bands, responsible for kick ass anthems and weapon-wielding warrior album cover art. But the group also has a heart of gold, as evidenced by the announcement that they will be headlining a show on August 5th in Liverpool, New York (at Sharkey’s Summer Stage) that will benefit Victory for Vets.
Established in 2014, Victory for Vets, Inc. is a collaborative community effort led by IBN Financial. Their mission is to raise awareness and funding through exciting community events with top level acts in order to help our service men and women get the support they need to reintegrate back into our community.
Formed in 1975 in Jacksonville, Florida, Molly Hatchet came up in the same local scene as the legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd (in fact, Molly Hatchet recorded their first demos in Skynyrd’s studio…and using their equipment!). Beginning with their self-titled debut in 1978, Molly Hatchet is responsible for such timeless rockers as “Flirtin’ with Disaster,” “Whiskey Man,” and “Gator Country,” among many others. Currently, the band’s line-up is comprised of Dave Hlubek – lead and rhythm guitar, backing vocals; John Galvin – keyboards; Bobby Ingram – rhythm and lead guitar; Phil McCormack – lead vocals; and Tim Lindsey – bass; Shawn Beamer – drums.
The event’s media partner is iHeart Radio (B104.7 / Y94), and the doors at Sharkey’s are open at 1pm (with Molly Hatchet hitting the stage at 8pm). There will be a veteran’s motorcycle ride ending at Sharkey’s at 3pm including a veteran’s color guard presentation, food and beverage will be available outside. Five bands in total will perform (line-up to be announced shortly). Tickets are $20.00 GA advance sale / $25.00 DOS, VIP preferred seated (limited) is $75.00, and preferred seated (limited) is $45.00, and can be purchased at either Phantomtix.com, Sharkey’s, Sound Garden in Armory Square, or through Victory for Vets.
If you live in the Upstate New York area, August 5th will undoubtedly be a date to mark down on your calendar, as it will provide a full day’s worth of rock n’ roll and good times – all for a great cause!
