Earlier this month, the Pennsylvania Senate unanimously approved a resolution (S.R. 99) introduced by State Sen. Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery/Delaware) congratulating Pennsylvania band “The Hooters” on 30 years of success and its contributions to the arts in the Commonwealth.
“The Hooters” performed free concert open to the public on April 30th at noon in the Capitol’s East Wing Rotunda.
The band, formed in 1983 in Philadelphia, has sold millions of records and recorded such hits as “And We Danced”, “Day by Day”, and “Fightin’ on the Same Side”.
The band has collaborated with celebrated artists like Jon Bon Jovi, Mick Jagger and Cyndi Lauper and famously performed at Live Aid and Amnesty International concerts, joining Pink Floyd for a special rendition of “The Wall”. The band’s members still live in Philadelphia.
