Charlie Daniels Band To Play At Westbury June 19

Live Nation presents Volunteer Jam, starring one of the greatest bands of Southern Rock, the Charlie Daniels Band, on Thursday, June 19 at 8 PM. The Charlie Daniels Band will be joined by special guests .38 Special and Shooter Jennings.

In 1974, Daniels organized the first Volunteer Jam concert, and except for a three-year gap in the late 1980's, these jams have continued ever since.

A talented fiddler, Charlie Daniels and his band fuse hardcore country with a hard-edged Southern rock boogie and blues.

His first album, Charlie Daniels, was released in 1970. The band was formed in 1972, and in 1974 they released Fire on the Mountain featuring both "Long Haired Country Boy" and "The South's Gonna Do It Again." Within months the album became a gold record and eventually went platinum.

In 1979, the Charlie Daniels Band released the single "The Devil Went Down to Georgia." It became a number one hit and was named the Country Music Association's Single of the Year. In addition, the single helped its accompanying album, Million Mile Reflections, become a multi-platinum success. Some of the band's other hit singles include "Uneasy Rider," "In America" and "Still In Saigon."

Joining the Charlie Daniels Band at Westbury will be rock band .38 Special and country singer Shooter Jennings. .38 Special are best known for their hits "Hold On Loosely," "Caught Up In You," "If I'd Been The One," and "Second Chance." Band members include Don Barnes, Donnie Van Zant, Danny Chauncey, Larry Junstrom, Bobby Capps, and Gary Moffatt. Shooter Jennings is known for his hit single "Fourth of July," and his albums Put the "O" Back in Country, Electric Rodeo, Live at Irving Plaza 4.18.06, and The Wolf.
