In the early 1970s a new form of music was emerging in the South. A mixture of blues, country, gospel and the English invasion of rock and roll that later was to be coined the phrase “Southern Rock.” The music was ﬁlled with style and emotion and with bands in the forefront such as the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and a band from Jacksonville, Florida called MOLLY HATCHET.
Their self-titled debut album quickly went platinum, and the follow-up, “Flirtin’ with Disaster,” was even more successful, selling over two million copies and cementing the band’s legendary status. Hit songs include: “Flirtin’ with Disaster,” “Dreams I’ll Never See,” “Whiskey Man,” and “Gator Country.”
So as we enter the next 25 years of music Molly Hatchet supports tradition that keeps developing the common bond and unity that keeps this style of music alive. Rest assured Molly Hatchet is a band that after 39 years is always workin’ hard, playin’ tough, livin’ fast, and still Flirtin’ with Disaster!!
