The sixth annual Rockin’ Out Alzheimer’s will be held at the Georgia Southern University Performing Arts Center on March 2 — and as usual, this year’s event promises to be a night of fun and fantastic music.

The event will feature the Yacht Rock Schooner Band performing the hits of the 1970s and 80s. Described as the “smoothest dance party on the high seas,” Yacht Rock Schooner is an eight-man band of some of Atlanta’s top players, featuring a dual keyboard setup, multiple ace vocalists, and a slammin’ sax man.

If you’re a fan of Hall & Oates, Steely Dan, Kenny Loggins or Michael McDonald, this is a night you’ll enjoy and this is the band you’ve got to see.

Rockin’ Out Alzheimer’s has become an annual tradition in Statesboro, raising money for Alzheimer’s. In 2016, the show raised $38,600, and organizers last year expected the total to exceed $40,000.

Funds raised support ongoing services in the Statesboro area, including a 24/7 helpline (1-800-272-3900), professional training, educational programs, multilingual information, Medic-Alert Safe Return bracelets and more.

"We provide services locally to those affected by Alzheimer's, advocate for policy change and scientific funding, and advance research toward prevention, treatment and ultimately a cure. We are able to do that because of the commitment of our generous donors and dedicated volunteers that organize fundraising events like our annual Rockin' Out Alzheimer's concert. Because of these volunteers, we are able to offer free services to families locally and throughout the state of Georgia, to families navigating this awful disease," said Casey Corley, director of Constituent Events for the Alzheimer’s Association, Georgia Chapter.

Yacht Rock Schooner takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are available at www.etix.com
