A platinum-recording band is set to take the stage at the Lake Martin Amphitheater, located at Russell Lands on Lake Martin on Labor Day weekend.
Sister Hazel will be performing at the amphitheater at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 2. The gates will open to the public at 5 p.m. and Sister Hazel will be opened by the Bank Walkers at 7 p.m.
“Fans can expect a high-energy show with some brand new Sister Hazel songs like ‘Small Town Living’ and ‘You Won’t See Me Again,’ as well as popular fan favorites like, ‘All For You,’” read a press release from Kaylor Girl Promotions.
According Russell Lands Director of Events Robert Gunn, Sister Hazel’s top hit, “All For You,” was recently ranked No. 9 in Billboard’s “Greatest of All Time Adult Pop Songs.” He said Sister Hazel was invited to play because of the quality of their music and the wide variety of people they appeal to.
“Their demographic is very diverse. They appeal to everyone from the youngest to the oldest,” Gunn said. “Their music is still clean, and they put on a good show.”
Gunn said this is the sixth time that Sister Hazel has played at Lake Martin, and they have been positively received for the most part each time.
“They always draw a crowd, they’re great to work with and they do a lot of good when they come here,” Gunn said.
Gunn said the concert is part of the amphitheater’s annual Labor Day concert.
“It’s just kind of a basic, end-of-the-season event at the amphitheater,” Gunn said.
Tickets cost $20 per person. Kids six and under will be admitted free. A limited number of VIP tickets are also currently available, and include access to a pre-show event with Sister Hazel, an extensive Q-and-A session with the band and limited-edition merchandise.
“It’s very reasonable, as far as concert tickets go these days,” Gunn said.
