Bluegrass & BBQ event Tickets on Sale


July 18, 2007

(GREER, SC) The Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce is having a Membership Celebration! “Bluegrass & BBQ” presented by Allen Bennett Memorial Hospital will be held on Thursday, August 9 from 5:30-8:30pm at Stillwaters of Lake Robinson located on Groce Meadow Road. The event will feature the Cane Creek Bluegrass Band and all-you-can eat BBQ buffet from Mutt’s BBQ. The Chamber will celebrate all of their new and existing members for 2007. This event is a great time to network and socialize with other Chamber members.

The Cane Creek Bluegrass Band, based out of the Upstate, has been picking and singing traditional Bluegrass and Bluegrass Gospel music in the Carolinas and Georgia since 2003. The group is made up of five members that have a deep respect for the music as it was done in the early years, but don’t be surprised if they perform a recent recording off of the Bluegrass charts! Cane Creek vocalist and fiddler, Jeff Rose also writes some original material. The tune, “Manse Jolly” written by Rose about the local Anderson County Civil War hero is one of their favorite songs to perform. Cane Creek uses a single condenser microphone the same way the Bluegrass bands of the 40’s and 50’s did to provide a more authentic sound.

Tickets are $15 each for Chamber members and $20 for non-members. Ticket includes all food and beverages. For tickets, call the Chamber at 877-3131 or visit www.greerchamber.com to reserve. Casual attire is suggested. 

The Presenting Sponsor is Allen Bennett Memorial Hospital. Corporate Sponsors to date include Stillwaters of Lake Robinson, National Bank of South Carolina, and State Auto Insurance Company. If your company is interested in sponsoring this event, please contact the Greer Chamber.
