HARRISBURG, April 17, 2013 – The Pennsylvania Senate yesterday unanimously approved a resolution (S.R. 99) introduced by State Sen. Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery/Delaware) congratulating Pennsylvania band “The Hooters” on 30 years of success and its contributions to the arts in the Commonwealth.
Additionally, Leach announced a free concert open to the public on April 30th at noon, during which “The Hooters” will perform an acoustic set in the Capitol’s East Wing Rotunda. He invited members of the media and the public to attend the concert on a day he has nicknamed “Hooters Music Appreciation Day”.
The band, formed in 1983 in Philadelphia, has sold millions of records and recorded such hits as “And We Danced”, “Day by Day”, and “Fightin’ on the Same Side”. The band has collaborated with celebrated artists like Jon Bon Jovi, Mick Jagger and Cyndi Lauper and famously performed at Live Aid and Amnesty International concerts, joining Pink Floyd for a special rendition of “The Wall”. The band’s members still live in Philadelphia today.
