Hartselle, AL, April 20, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Johnny Sandlin’s Duck Jam originally scheduled for May 13th, 2017 at the Morgan County Sheriff’s Posse Rodeo Grounds as a music fundraiser for the PFK Foundation, will be rescheduled to a later date in 2017.
“The re-scheduling of the date is necessary due to a recent accident affecting event producer Johnny Sandlin that will require a recovery period to allow him to re-join planning and production efforts 100%. Johnny wants this event to be the stellar success it was always planned out to be,” states PFK Foundation heads Tim and ‘Carrow McClendon. “We are looking at a few of the best options for the rescheduled date later in 2017, and are excited that the event will still be able to offer a huge amount of talent, hope and inspiration to everyone participating. In the meantime, our thoughts are with Johnny as he fully recovers and gets back to his normal routine of helping to bring great music to people everywhere. We didn’t want to move forward with everything on May 13th without Johnny being able to be involved and a central part of the event.”
The fundraiser is the biggest event of the year for the PFK Foundation and will be a celebration of young Kayleigh McClendon’s birthday. On her 7th birthday (May 13th, 2016), Kayleigh was diagnosed with terminal DIPG cancer which she fought bravely until her passing on Nov. 15, 2016. The McClendon family has created the PFK Foundation to continue Kayleigh’s fight on behalf of all children similarly afflicted. PFK works closely with St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and proceeds will benefit St. Jude’s.
Acclaimed Alabama Music Hall of Fame Inductee producer, Johnny Sandlin has thrown his support behind this incredible event resulting in over 30 stellar acts coming together to perform. Sandlin is known for his groundbreaking work in both the Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Macon, GA (Capricorn Records) music scenes and is considered one of the most important producers in crafting the Southern Rock genre of music. He has worked with top acts such as The Allman Brothers, Widespread Panic, Wet Willie, The Marshall Tucker Band, Chuck Leavell, Jerry Reed, Mac Davis, Marie Osmond, Elvin Bishop and The Gatlin Brothers, to name just a few. Johnny’s industry nickname is “The Duck,” and Kayleigh McClendon’s was “Baby Duck.”
The new, rescheduling date for Duck Jam will be announced soon once all reorganization details have been finalized. Continue to watch the PFK website and Facebook pages for additional updates and information.
