Legendary Rock Band, Molly Hatchet, to Perform at The Strand Theatre, March 17th
HUDSON FALLS – On March 17th, legendary band Molly Hatchet is coming to The Strand Theatre! Celebrating their 40th Anniversary with a World Tour, they are getting ready to make a big announcement regarding a new record deal and more. After 40 years, Molly Hatchet is still workin’ hard, playin’ tough, livin’ fast, and Flirtin’ with Disaster!!! Opening for them that night is local southern-rock band Beatin’ the Odds.
Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, Molly Hatchet’s self-titled debut album 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. Lead singer Danny Joe Brown left the band in 1980 and contacted Bobby Ingram, a Jacksonville-based guitarist, and friend, who gave brown his first singing gig in 1975 with a Jacksonville-based band called Rum Creek. Brown and Ingram then put together with keyboardist John Galvin the Danny Joe Brown Band and continued touring until 1982. The album was produced by Glyn Johns at Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas as he has worked with legendary artists The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, The Eagles, and many more.
A live album was released in 2019 and recorded in Germany, Switzerland, and in cities in the United States over a 5-year time span. After a long and storied career and various iterations in their line-up, the band is currently touring worldwide and has plans for a new studio album release in 2024. Entering the next 40 years of music, Molly Hatchet’s tradition keeps developing the common bond of southern rockers and keeps our southern style of music alive and well.
