Sister Hazel Headlines 2020 Rally in the Valley May 17 at SteelStacks
Annual Free Event Celebrating Recovery from Substance Use Drew 4,000 Attendees in 2019
BETHLEHEM, PA–Chart topping alternative act Sister Hazel headlines the 2020 Rally in the Valley, Sync Recovery Community’s music festival to celebrate recovery from substance use conditions, May 17 at SteelStacks. The event, which is free to attend, kicks off at noon and also features performances by KC Makes Music, Wycked Sober, Blue Wave Ramblers, Joe Miralles Trio, Tshila and more.
Originating from Gainesville, Fla., Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called “one of the Top 100 Most Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years” by Performing Songwriter Magazine. Their song “All for You” topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997 and the success propelled their album to platinum status. Since then, the band has become firmly established not only in rock and alternative music, but now in country with four back-to-back Billboard Top Country Album Chart entries.
Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band was a pioneer in the themed cruise industry by co-founding “The Rock Boat,” and it annually hosts events like the “Hazelnut Hang” and “Camp Hazelnut” that focus on creating unique experiences and interacting with the fans. In addition to the events and touring, the band gives back with “Lyrics For Life.” Founded by singer Ken Block, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient-care charities.
Rally in the Valley, which attracted more than 4,000 people last year, will take place at the Levitt Pavilion and Air Products Town Square at SteelStacks from noon-5:30 p.m., with Sister Hazel taking the stage at 4 p.m. In addition to live music, the day will include a zip line, health and wellness activities, food and cooking demonstrations, family support, speakers, an author mall and, most importantly, resources that testify to the multiple pathways available for people to take their life back from addiction.
“We are over-the-top excited about headliner Sister Hazel,” says ???. “Their participation will obviously attract a broader community and perhaps some people who are sober curious and need the connectivity and resources this event provides.“There is something special that happens when people in recovery from substance use conditions get together. We are able to speak openly, and it allows others who may be struggling to feel a sense of hope and know that they are not alone. We are excited to once again present this event and important resource for our community.”
