'Boys in the Band' hits the road

“Boys in the Band, The Alabama Tribute” took their show on the road last week, performing at Tin Roof on Broadway Avenue in Nashville. Members include John Michael Weatherly as Randy Owen, Matty Croxton on bass as Teddy Gentry, Braxton Harris on drums and Marcus Mullins on lead guitar as Jeff Cook. They are joined by Craig Jacoway on rhythm guitar. They started the tribute act for sold-out fundraisers to benefit The SAM Foundation and Fort Payne Main Street. They did a show at the Xtreme Amphitheater in Oklahoma on June 12 and have an additional performances planned June 25 at Hop Springs Beer Park in Murfreesboro, Tenn. (to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention), July 25 at The Bowery in Myrtle Beach, where the original Alabama performed regularly when they got their big break to become country music superstars. Boys in the Band are the featured act at this year’s Fort Payne Independence Day Fireworks event at the Fort Payne Sports Complex on July 1.
