Plymouth - Flying Monkey announces Nitty Gritty Dirt Band & rest of Spring Season 

Plymouth, NH: The Flying Monkey Movie House and Performance Center announces its Spring Season, kicking things off with the traditional Country Rock of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on Thursday, March 15th.  Known for hits like “Fishin in the Dark” and “Mr. Bojangles”, NGDB’s traditional Country Rock and Roots Music remains just as relevant today as in the 70s. Local country phenom, the Tom Dixon Band, will open the night with a special acoustic set of original music. Tickets for this show start at $39.

Forty-five years after they formed in California in 1966, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band remains one of the most active and influential bands of its era. Pioneers of the country-rock movement, the band laid the groundwork for a generation of country rockers from the Eagles to Alabama. The NGDB’s resume includes multi-platinum and gold records and a string of top ten hits including "Fishin' In The Dark" and "Mr. Bojangles," as well as multiple Grammy, IBMA and CMA awards and nominations. Their groundbreaking 1972 LP "Will The Circle Be Unbroken," a three-LP set re-introduced country legends like Doc Watson, Roy Acuff, Earl Scruggs and Mother Maybelle Carter to a broader audience.

In the early ‘80s, the band returned to Nashville for a successful career in mainstream country music charting a decade of hits including “Dance Little Jean,” "Workin' Man" and "Long Hard Road.” In 1989, the group recorded “Circle II,” tapping Johnny Cash, EmmyLou Harris, Levon Helm, Chet Atkins, Bruce Hornsby, John Hiatt and Roseanne Cash. “Circle II” earned three Grammys and the CMA’s “Album of the Year.” In 2002, “Circle III” took home the IBMA’s “Recorded Event of the Year award” and led to a 2005 Grammy for “Country Instrumental Performance.”

As the Flying Monkey graciously thanks NH for their support of a fun and successful Winter, they are also pleased to announce the rest of their exciting and diverse Spring season which includes the following performances:

Plymouth - Hard Southern Rockers Molly Hatchet storm into the Flying Monkey on Saturday, Feb. 25th.

Plymouth, NH.  At 7:30pm on Saturday, February 25th The Flying Monkey is ready to Thunder with Southern Rockers Molly Hatchet.  Known for their hard rockin live concerts, the bad boys of the south have always been at the forefront of the Southern Rock movement.  Citizens Band Radio will open the night.  Tickets for this concert start at $39.

Southern rock might have had its heyday in the 70’s, but the legions of fans that come out in droves to see it are sure to tell you different. Turn the dial to any classic rock radio station, and you’re guaranteed to hear a hit from say… Lynyrd Skynyrd.  Skynyrd was a band that could have made Southern rock the next "alternative" mainstream had it not been for tragedy striking the band in the form of a plane crash that claimed several band member's lives. From the ashes of that tragedy rose a few bands of the same ilk. Amongst them was Florida's Molly Hatchet.

Formed in 1975 by guitarist Dave Hlubek [pronounced "LOO'-bek"], they chalked up a string of three consecutive Platinum albums: their self-titled debut, Flirtin’ with Disaster (the follow up that went Double Platinum), and Beatin’ The Odds.  Molly Hatchet took the country by storm from their very first album. Less the twangy country influence of much Southern rock of the day, Molly Hatchet rather infused a heavy metal feel to their styling. Dave Hlubek himself was a rocker at heart. And rock they did.  The band certainly made its mark, their name becoming definitive with an entire musical movement.

Opening the night is CITIZENS BAND RADIO. Touring up and down the east coast in a 1957 GMC Motor Coach, playing vintage instruments: Pedal steel, guitars, mandolin and drums, harnessed together to light up the night with powerful harmonies, homegrown tunes, and positivity.

The show is sure to include Molly Hatchet classics "Whiskey Man," "Bounty Hunter," "Fall of the Peacemakers," "Beatin' the Odds," "Dreams I'll Never See," "Flirtin' with Disaster" and more.

Don't miss this opportunity to see the Sons of the South play their special blend of boogie, blues and hard rock!
