Good ol' Southern Rockin: Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, Jim Dandy Saturday

November 16, 2012
Melissa Schneider - Editor ( , Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

Everyone loves some good 'ol live Southern rock music, and it doesn't get any better than Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot or Jim Dandy. Joining forces once again to rock the town with mind-blowing Southern rock at its finest, these three Southern rock greats, with Black Oak Arkansas, will be jamming together one night only at Ballyorney, 13851 South Tamiami Trail, Fort Myers, Saturday, Nov. 17, with gates opening at 5:30 p.m. and showtime at 6:30 p.m.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Tabarrini Foundation, a local charity that gives children a chance to learn and absorb the beauty of music who otherwise could not afford to.

Jay Goldberg Events and Entertainment is the coordinating team behind this big concert, and the leader of the 40-year promotion company is eager to see the show take flight.

"We've been producing shows for 40 years and we have worked with Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot and Jim Dandy and the Black Oak Arkansas a number of times over the years," Jay said. "In August of 2012, we introduced the same three groups at a Grand Nationals weekend rally in Peoria, Ill., happened to mention how we have a home in Southwest Florida, and thought it'd be a great show down there. These three groups are the perfect combination for a great Southern rock show."

The outside concert will take place on a grand stage with top-notch lighting and sound by Brent's Music.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the show. VIP tickets, which include an all-you-can-eat buffet, open bar from 6 to10 p.m. and special seating, is $89. Tickets may be purchased online at or, or in person at Ballyorney's restaurant.
