Country Music’s Sawyer Brown performs this weekend at LPAC

LANCASTER – The race is on to get tickets to see country music’s original super-group Sawyer Brown live at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center on Saturday, April 28. Hailed as the Rolling Stones of country music, Sawyer Brown is one of the biggest names on LPAC’s Season roster.

Sawyer Brown broke into the country music scene in the early 1980’s with a fresh sound and creative energy, blending traditional country roots with bar-room rock n’ roll. With a strong Alabama influence, Sawyer Brown has connected with its fans through thoughtful ballads like “The Walk” and “All These Years,” as well as the honky-tonk rockers like “The Boys and Me” and “Some Girls Do.”

After launching into stardom straight from being named Vocal Group Champion on Star Search, Sawyer Brown has enjoyed a long, hit-filled career — remaining remarkably stable in a notoriously unstable business. During more than seventeen years of recording and touring, the band has changed only one member, when Shayne Hill replaced Duncan Cameron as the group’s lead guitarist in 2004. Original members include lead vocalist Mark Miller, keyboardist Gregg “Hobie” Hubbard, drummer Joe Smyth and bassist Jim Scholten.

Come rock out with the legendary country stars of Sawyer Brown at the Lancaster Performing Arts Center on Saturday, April 28, 2012, at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are priced at $57 for Orchestra seats and $52 for Balcony seats. Tickets can be purchased online at, by calling at (661) 723-5950, or by visiting the LPAC Box Office, 750 W. Lancaster BLVD. Box Office hours are noon to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday.
