Mac’n At The ‘Drome – A Concert Film Experience Benefiting Mac Leaphart

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2012 by Lowcountry Boil

On January 28, both local and national musicians will be sitting in for beloved singer and songwriter, Mac Leaphart, and performing his songs at The Hippodrome. Benefiting a man who has successfully made a career out of connecting with people through his music, proceeds will go to Mac in his ongoing recovery from a serious car accident and recent surgery to remove a brain tumor. A unique experience of camaraderie and good will, performances of Mac’s music will be set against a visual narration on the theatre’s IMAX screen and give life to Mac’s story and his significant impact on those around him.

The concert features collaborative performances by Mark Bryan (Hootie and The Blowfish), Danielle Howle, Five Way Friday, John Wesley Satterfield, Joal Rush, Doug Jones (Craven Melon), Luke Cunningham, Greg Payne (The Piedmont Boys), Ryan Bonner, Jamie Resch with Shovels & Rope, Donnie Blackwell and more very special surprise guests. Reid Stone and Guilt Ridden Troubadour featuring members of Mac Leaphart’s current band, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company, will act as house band and musical conductors for the night’s celebration.

As doors open at 6:30 pm, acoustic music by Jim Marshall (Junkyard Angel) and a silent auction will start in the lobbies. Food concessions provided by Home Team BBQ and a full bar will run throughout the night. The concert begins at 8 p.m. in the theatre and will last until 10 pm followed by more live music by Five Way Friday and John Totaro’s Classic Woodies until 12 a.m. or later. Garage parking is available as well as free parking in the open lot adjacent to the venue. Advance tickets are $17 and may be purchased online at  www.charlestonhippodrome.com. Day of show tickets are $20.

Mac Leaphart is a singer/songwriter who plays a blend of country, rhythm and blues. The Charleston City Paper describes Mac as “a rowdy set, which seems to meld Gram Parsons with the ‘Sticky Fingers’ era Rolling Stones”. Since his arrival in Charleston in 2007, Leaphart has been performing over 250 shows a year, solo and with his band, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company. Give Mac a listen and see why Skope Magazine says, “This guy may just single handedly save country music.”
