TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, June 15, 2014......Father’s Day will see a special benefit concert at the American Legion Hall. The line-up includes the New 76ers, the Labamba Brothers, the Harvest Gypsies and the Rychlik-Bradley Family Band.
The benefit is for the Keep It Rural Coalition, which is fighting the permitting of a gas station off the canopy road at Crump and Miccosukee in east Leon County.
Mike Rychlik, who lives near the intersection, will be playing most of the afternoon. He’s elated to be performing with his sons, who are coming to town to support his cause.He says love of family and love of the land are intertwined.
“It’s all about family and protecting what we believe to be sacred, a sacred bond, and that is to protect the land we love so much,” Rychlik said.
The benefit runs from 2 to 6:30 p-m at the American Legion Hall at Lake Ella. It features dozens of silent auction items including drum lessons, art, beach stays at St. George and St. Augustine, and a two-set show with old friends Rychlik and Warren Sutton of the Labamba Brothers
