Hickory – Two groups of local musicians, The Time Travelers and Men in Black, will be entertaining partygoers at the Hickory Community Theatre’s annual fundraiser, The Vacation Extravaganza, which will take place on next Monday, June the 12th, beginning at 6:30pm.

Tickets are $125, which admits two for the party. The ticket also provides one chance to win either of two prizes, the $10,000 grand prize or the new $1,000 “second chance.” Although the event retains its traditional name, the winner of either prize receives a cash payout.

HCTThe Time Travelers are a rock and roll band featuring Dick Hull on lead guitar, Ken Sigler on drums, Dave Walker on guitar and Dave Watson on drums.

Walker also does lead vocals with the other members providing back up. They’ve appeared at numerous charity events throughout the area, as well as at local restaurants like The Olde Hickory Tap Room and Youssef 242.

The Men in Black are newly reorganized from 2009. The band members are Jeff Cline, Ken Sigler and Mark Sinclair. Both bands cover rock and roll favorites through the decades.

The 2017 Vacation Extravaganza is sponsored by Catawba Valley Medical Center, Dr. George and Mrs. Sandra Clay, III, DDS, David and Gena Small, Backstreets Bar & Grill, Broome Associated Insurance, Hilton Garden Inn, and Adam & Meredyth Neilly.

The Hickory Community Theatre is a Funded Affiliate of the United Arts Council of Catawba County.
