Jackyl headlining Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon post-race concert in Forsyth Park

I guess it’s fitting in some respects that Jackyl, originally from Georgia, will be headlining the post-race concert in Forsyth Park after the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon on November 9th.

But it’s also worth noting that the for-profit race pretty quickly lost some of the local enthusiasm that greeted it before the first year, in part because of less-than-compelling headline bands and retail sales from visitors far lower than anticipated.

So this year the big band is Jackyl, which was founded all the way back in 1987 and which sort of amazingly can be found at http://www.rockmerollmejackylmeoff.com.

Here’s “The Lumberjack”:

And “Down on Me”:
