Event

Skillet Lickers at Colleen O. Williams Theater
The Skillet Lickers, Country musics first supergroup, now in the 93rd year, are excited to be returning to Winder, Georgia, for the first time since 2014, as they perform their latest musical production, Real Time Radio, on the evening of Good Friday (Friday, March 30, 2018).  The show will take place in the heart of downtown Winder in the Colleen O. Williams Theater at the Winder Cultural Arts Center.

Were excited to have the opportunity to return to Winder, said Russ Tanner of the Skillet Lickers. Weve been performing a lot of shows out towards Buford, Cumming, and Canton as of late, so its great to get to perform a full show close to home for a lot of folks who maybe havent been able to see us lately.

Real Time Radio is a music-centered play, filled with Skillet Licker favorites, along with Country, Jazz, Blues, and Folk favorites from days gone by, while simultaneously telling the history of radio  and its enormous influence on the Skillet Lickers and other bands of the time, along with the impact radio had on America from its inception to the modern times. Tanner describes the show as educational, yet filled with humor and packed full of great music.

The Skillet Lickers are known for their diverse repotoire of music. The band performs everything from original, million-selling Skillet Lickers classics of the 1920s and 30s to classic country from Skillet Licker inspired artists (such as Roy Acuff, George Jones, and Hank Williams) along with Bluegrass, Jazz, Folk, and Blues favorites sprinkled in along the way, too.

In addition to their diverse repotoire, the band is known for its diverse instrumentation, featuring a fiddle, guitar, banjo, dobro, mandolin, drums, stratocaster, and bass.

Having performed for over 90 years, the band has plenty of stories, history, and comedy to accompany their family-friendly shows. The Skillet Lickers today are led by Phil Tanner and son Russ Tanner, the third and fourth generation of the original band, which was led by Phils grandfather (Russs great-grandfather), Gid Tanner. Gid led the original band in the 1920s and 30s, including in 1934, when the band recorded its most famous hit, Down Yonder, which would become the first Country instrumental album to sell one million copies.

Tickets for the show will go on sale on Monday, February 19th at 10 a.m. You will be able to purchase tickets at skilletlickers.org and also by phone. More details on ticket sales will be available at that time. The band is encouraging fans to purchase your tickets early as the theater can only hold 200 and tickets are expected to go quickly.

Through Gids son Gordon, grandson Phil, and great-grandson, Russ, the band has pressed on for nearly a century. The Skillet Lickers are proud members of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame and Blue Ridge Music Hall of Fame.
