On Monday, the Skillet Lickers announced a brand new concert in their ‘Music Night’ series, which will be held on Sunday, May 27th (Memorial Day weekend) at the band’s amphitheater in Dacula. The series has hosted the likes of Country music stars such as John Berry and Teea Goans along with well-known local artists, such as Levi Lowrey and Josiah Siska.
The newest show will put a special emphasis on local artists as the Skillet Lickers host the very first “Local Legends Night”. The show, slated to start at 7pm, will feature an opening set from the Skillet Lickers, followed by a rotating cast of well-known local Country, Bluegrass, Folk, and Gospel artists who will be accompanied by the Skillet Lickers. The show will then close out with a set from a couple very special local guests.
“With this show, we’re celebrating local music and the local musical history and heritage of Dacula, Gwinnett County, and the northeast Georgia region. What better time to celebrate local music than at the bicentennial anniversary of our county’s founding and who better to host such an event than one of the nation’s longest running and most storied musical groups?,” says Josh Tanner, one of the event organizers.
The specific guest lineup will be announced in the very near future. Tickets for “Local Legends Night” are only $10 and will be available at the gate. The amphitheater is located at 2652 Auburn Ave., Dacula, GA 30019 and additional information on the venue and the entire “Music Night” series can be found at DaculaMusicNights.com. Food and drink will also be available on site.
“It’s always a blast being able to put together one of these shows… there’s truly nothing better than a hometown concert under the shade trees as the sun sets while enjoying some delicious food, fellowship, and of course, great music,” says Russ Tanner of the Skillet Lickers.
