Saturday, June 8, 2013 – 8pm
In the early 1970s, a new form of music was emerging in the South. A mixture of blues, country, gospel and the English invasion of rock and roll that was later to be named “Southern Rock.” The music was filled with style and emotion and with bands in the forefront such as the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and a band from Jacksonville, Florida called Molly Hatchet. Molly Hatchet named themselves after a famous 17th century axe murderess “hatchet molly”.
Their self-titled debut album which included Danny Joe Brown, Dave Hlubek, Duane Roland, Steve Holland, Banner Thomas and Bruce Crump in the lineup was released on Epic records in 1978 and reached multi-platinum status as the band established their reputation of working hard, playing tough and living fast through intense touring with such bands as Aerosmith, Bob Seger, The Rolling Stones and many more. In 1979, Flirtin’ With Disaster was released and history was in the making. The band continued touring on the road with an average of 250 live shows per year and like the first album it also achieved multi-platinum status. After lead singer Danny Joe Brown left in 1980, Beatin’ The Odds (1980) and Take No Prisoners (1981) were released with singer Jimmy Farrar. Brown returned to record No Guts…No Glory (1983), The Deed Is Done (1984) and Double Trouble Live (1985). In the fall of 1985, Bobby Ingram came into the band as lead guitar and songwriter, and the band continued to tour over 200 dates a year. In 1989, they recorded Lighting Strikes Twice for Capitol Records.
Since the release of Devil’s Cannon in 1996, the band has continued touring and performing classic hits such as “Flirtin’ With Disaster”, “Gator Country”, “Whiskey Man” and “Dreams I’ll Never See” as well as current hits in the true spirit and southern tradition of Molly Hatchet.

Critics and peers agree: Brian Regan has distinguished himself as one of the premier comedians in the country. The perfect balance of sophisticated writing and physicality, Brian fills theaters nationwide with fervent fans that span generations.
In 2011, Brian’s highly anticipated second album, All By Myself, was released on CD available only through his website. The live concert recording was originally released as a digital download in December 2010 only available through his website. Releasing two critically acclaimed hour Comedy Central specials and DVD’s in as many years - 2008’s The Epitome of Hyperbole, and 2007’s Brian Regan Standing Up - Brian has set a standard of excellence that others continually try to follow.
Brian’s non-stop theater tour has visited more than 80 cities each year since 2005 and continues through 2013. It is the quality of his material, relatable to a wide audience and revered by his peers, which continues to grow Brian’s fan base. In January of 2012 Brian broke the record for the most consecutive shows by a comedian at Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City with ten sold-out shows selling more than 26,000 tickets. In March of 2010, Brian performed five sold-out shows at Abravanel Hall breaking the previous record of four shows set by Jerry Seinfeld in 2005.
With his first appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” in 1995, Brian solidified his place on the show. He made his 25th appearance in 2012, the most of any comedian on the CBS show. A dorm room favorite, Brian’s 1997 CD, “Brian Regan Live,” has sold over 150,000 copies and consistently charts in iTunes Top Ten Comedy Albums. Brian’s 2000 “Comedy Central Presents” special continues to be a top viewer choice, and Brian’s independently released 2004 DVD, “I Walked on the Moon,” is available at www.BrianRegan.com.
