Hard to believe the summer concert series is almost over for the 2015 season, but what a way to end the season…get two great musical talents together for a dynamite show! Zac Brown and the Zac Brown Band along with Greg Allman will be here to close out the year.

This isn’t the first time these two southern (Zac hales from Georgia, while Greg is a native Tenneseean) musicians have joined forces….the two played “Georgia On My Mind” at the 2011 CMA’s, Allman joined the Zac Brown Band onstage in 2012 to perform “Midnight Rider” and “One Way Out“.

The Zac Brown Band’s newest album, JEKYL + HYDE, hit #1 on the Billboard 200, earning them their third #1 spot on the chart. The three time Grammy winners and platinum selling artists are unstoppable at this point and together with Gregg Allman have a winning formula for a tour.

The Hit Men at Hershey Theatre 16 Jul 2015, 7:00 am







What a sweet idea…gather great talent from music groups of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s and form a band to bring back some of the most undeniably best music of that era…and they did!

A living history of sorts, The Hit Men are a composite of groups we loved:  Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, Tommy James and The Shondells, The Critters, Carly Simon, Jim Croce, Cat Stevens, Barry Manilow, Elton John and Kiki Dee. They’ve played in these groups; they have forged friendship spanning 50 years. We rocked to the music they made. And they’re ready to bring back those memories for us.

Dust off those vocal chords and rock out for the evening to what have now become American standards… “Oh What A Night”, Who Loves You”, “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry” are just a few of the Four Seasons hits you will hear, along with “Peace Train”, “Crocodile Rock”, “Mony Mony”, and “Leroy Brown”. Along with the wonderful music of that time, the group will reminisce with stories of what it was like during their touring days and in recording sessions.

Date: Saturday, August 29, 2015

Time: 8:00 PM

Admission: $39.50, $49.50, $59.50 & $74.50
