GET READY for a packed audience, a packed stage and a very packed food truck.

SPECIAL GUEST MUSICIANS:

Chris Hicks, guitarist for the Marshall Tucker Band is one of our own locals. Each year he has been on tour but for 2016, he finally is able to play Skydog! WE welcome back each year our great friends and great musicians, Paul Hornsby and Lamar Williams Jr.

A great host of talent, led by the infamous Ken Wynn, will be charging the hill as our amazing, world class rhythm section Hits the Note for us all. We appreciate each and every one of these musicians who come out to make this event the fun and inspiring time that it is.

We are honoring our two friends who passed away last year, Gregg and Tim Brooks.

We are honoring Christopher Lovell, son of Buddy Lovell, whose life ended tragically.

Thank you Buddy (AV Services) for your support of Skydog and the Rescue Mission. We honor Christopher’s life with you and your family.

We are presenting the “Skydog Award” to Robert Coleman.

Mama Louise always graces us with her beautiful self and presence.

The good people who came to Skydog last year donated 5 tons of food to benefit the Rescue Mission of Middle Georgia. Erin Reimers, President/CEO, tells us that this one offering each year assures that their residents will have canned goods for most of the year and adds a big THANK YOU! Let’s make it 7 tons this year everyone!

Our sponsors, musicians, stage personnel, food and t-shirt staff, security. It takes each and every one of us to see this evert through each year. So please know that you are loved and appreciated. Go to www.skydogmacon.com to see pictures from last year.
