     The Sucarnochee Revue returns to the University of West Alabama Friday, Sept 20 at 7 p.m. Held in Bibb Graves Auditorium, the concert will feature “Duck Dynasty” guitar phenom Tony Pasko. Other artists slated to perform include Sydney Hill, Joseph Whitaker, Britt Gully, J. Burton Fuller, Mississippi Chris Sharp, Piper Lauderdale, the Stage Hands, the Jag-u-Ars, and Jacky Jack White. The Sucarnochee Revue will be recorded for a new CD intended for major distribution in 2014.

Pasko, a Meridian, Miss. native, is the man behind all the “Duck Dynasty” music. For more that 15 years Tony has been a music industry professional and session guitarist. His vast playing background and knowledge of musical products has given him the opportunity to work and perform with some of the greatest musicians in the world.

    “Tony is a monster guitar player and such an inspiration to other musicians. I thought it would be great to introduce him to our Alabama audiences,” said Jack White, host of the Sucarnochee Revue.

    Hill is the daughter of Willy and Dana Hill of Demopolis, Ala. She has performed on stage since elementary school.

    “She has a unique style and a professional caliber voice. There are lots of folks who ‘wanna-be’ successful in show business, but I’d say Sydney is a ‘gonna-be,’ ” White said.

    Whitaker, a Nashville, Tenn. native, is considered an “extremely gifted young singer,” according to White.

    The Sucarnochee Revue is a radio and television program featuring musical artists of all genres from the Black Belt region. Taped live in Bibb Graves Auditorium on the UWA campus in Livingston, and at the Temple Theatre in Meridian, Miss., its purpose is to introduce radio listeners in Alabama, the nation, and world to the artistic community of performers in the Black Belt area.

    The concert begins at 7 p.m. at Bibb Graves Auditorium on the campus of the University of West Alabama in Livingston, Ala. Tickets are $10 at the door.
