Get ready to groove and rock the night away as the legendary Steve Miller Band takes center stage at the 35th annual Huntsville Classic on Saturday, May 18, 2024, at Huntsville’s spectacular Orion Amphitheater. The announcement of this iconic band headlining promises an electrifying evening filled with music, memories, and a shared commitment to a meaningful cause.
The Steve Miller Band, a legendary blues-influenced pop/rock ensemble, rose to prominence in the mid-to-late 70s with a distinctive catalog of hits that dominated the airwaves. Their compilation album, “Greatest Hits 1974-78,” achieved the prestigious Recording Industry Association of America’s Diamond Award, selling over 15 million copies and earning a spot among the top 25 best-selling albums of all time.
Fans can anticipate an electrifying performance as the Steve Miller Band graces the stage at the Huntsville Classic fundraiser. The setlist will feature fan favorites such as “The Joker,” “Rock’n Me,” “Fly Like an Eagle,” “Abracadabra,” and “Take the Money and Run.”
Beyond the music, this event holds a deeper purpose – to benefit the pediatrics department at the not-for-profit Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children through the Huntsville Hospital Foundation. The funds raised will be directed towards significant initiatives, including the purchase of a pediatric critical care transport ambulance, renovation of the Pediatric ICU, and support for programs like Canines for Coping and Caring House, all designed to enhance the lives of young patients.
Huntsville Hospital Foundation President, Sarah Savage-Jones, stated, “This investment will truly help us serve the whole pediatric patient by meeting their physical and emotional needs. By purchasing a concert ticket, you are helping ensure our local, public hospital can continue providing world-class care to kids from across North Alabama, from NICU infants to teenagers.”
Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children stands as a beacon of advanced pediatric healthcare in the region, offering vital services such as pediatric emergency care, pediatric intensive care, Level III neonatal intensive care, and pediatric surgery. The hospital also proudly hosts one of only eight St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital Affiliate Clinics in the nation.
