Walker County-based BACKDRAFT

The Pastime Theatre is welcoming the month of July with its first concert since the pandemic.

Like many other venues, The Pastime Theatre has been at a standstill since the Coronavirus Pandemic hit in spring of 2020. The last concert held was March of 2020 featuring Jazz legend, Eric Essix. Although the theatre office remained open during the mandatoryshutdown, the music was silenced. But after 16 months that changes this month!

July 31st at 7pm, the Pastime Theatre will begin its comeback with local talent favorites and Walker County-based country rock band Backdraft.  Original band members were all firemen or the wife of a fireman, hence the name Backdraft. Backdraft has now spanned over 2 decades and continues to offer a variety of music styles from Oldies to Country to Rock & Pop. Backdraft has performed all over Alabama and neighboring states. Recently two of Backdraft’s members, Vickie Cosby and Jeff Parnell, were featured in 78 Magazine

This concert is not part of the original concert series that had been postponed. Tickets for this performance will be $10 per person. Tickets are available at the Pastime Theatre office, Gold Connection, City Hall andThe Nelson and Charlene Kemp Foundation. Ticketsare also available via postal service. No credit card purchases for this performance. For more information contact 205-487-3002
