Duck Dynasty guitarist to perform Sept. 6

MERIDIAN —

If you've ever watched A&E Network's hit reality series Duck Dynasty, you know the music of local guitarist Tony Pasko. What you may not know is you can see it live and possibly win a signed CD when Pasko takes stage at The Temple Theatre on Friday, Sept. 6, as The Sucarnochee Revue presents Be-Bop-A-Lula – a night of vintage music covering everything from pop and soft rock to Jimmie Rodgers and Spanish guitar. Showtime is 7 p.m. Admission is $10.

Described by ReverbNation as having a sound influenced by Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, The Smashing Pumpkins, Soundgarden, and Jimmy Page, Pasko found his way to Meridian from Chicago nine years ago after being discovered by Hartley Peavey of Peavey Electronics. The now nationally-recognized music industry professional and session guitarist said he is looking forward to his first performance at the Temple Theatre. 

“I am excited to be playing in such an historic location in Meridian.” said Pasko, who was invited to perform by his longtime friend, Jacky Jack White, producer and host of The Sucarnochee Revue. “I have known Jacky through the years and we have formed a special bond,” he said.

Accompanying Pasko will be his D-string partner, local artist and radio personality Al Brown. A signed copy of Pasko's instrumental holiday CD, “Band of Elves,” will go to one lucky fan during the show. The concert will also feature performances by local favorites Allen Hunt, Back Pocket, Kenny "Kid Cabana" Suire, Ivory Robinson, the Jaguars, and Sucarnochee regulars Mississippi Chris Sharp and Piper Lauderdale, Britt Gully, J Burton Fuller, and White himself.

"This show is themed 'Be-Bop-A-Lula' … that's an umbrella term for all kinds of great vintage pop and soft rock. Should be a wonderful night of music!” White said.
