Chastain Conservancy announces Rock Chastain 2016 concert performers

The Chastain Park Conservancy has announced the lineup of musical talent that will perform at its Rock Chastain 2016 fund-raising concert at the Chastain Amphitheater on Saturday, Oct. 15, including Drivin’ N’ Cryin’, The Whiskey Gentry, Brian Collins and Ed Rowland & The Sweet Tea Project.rc-logo-black-01

Powered by the sponsorship of Momentum Motorcars and ticket sales, the third annual benefit concert will serve as the primary fundraiser for the Chastain Park Conservancy and its work.

The completion this year of two major community projects—a 40,000-square-foot progressive playground and an expansion of The PATH alongside Powers Ferry Road—support the non-profit’s commitment to restore, enhance, maintain and preserve Atlanta’s largest regional park.

“Thanks to the generosity of our corporate sponsors, music performers and Live Nation, we are able to keep ticket prices affordable, which has contributed to the success of this event,” said Conservancy Executive Director Rosa McHugh.

“While we want to ensure the financial strength of the conservancy, this is a night to celebrate the park and the people who use it. Our goal for the 3rd annual Rock Chastain event is to sell out the 6,500-seat amphitheater,” McHugh added.

A resident of the Chastain Park neighborhood, Ed Roland (of Collective Soul) has helped assemble this year’s musical lineup for the concert.  Drivin’ N’ Cryin’ is Atlanta’s and Rock Chastain’s very own band. The Whiskey Gentry is a toe-tapping, steamrolling musically seasoned southern band.

Brian Collins is a country music Georgia born artist, who has had hit singles on the MusicRow Country Breakout Chart and then Rowland adds to that lineup his newest collaborative enterprise, Ed Roland & The Sweet Tea Project.

“Living here, recording music here and playing shows in the neighborhood is something we are happy we’re able to do,” said Rowland. “We as a band love supporting the Chastain Conservancy and playing at this event. Chastain Amphitheater is still one of the greatest venues in Atlanta.”

Tickets are available for purchase via Ticketmaster, with tickets price ranging from $30-$150. Because the Chastain Park Conservancy is a 501c3 non-profit, Tax ID #81-0631219, a percentage of every ticket is tax deductible.
