“I’m​ ​very​ ​excited​ ​to​ ​host​ ​this​ ​unveiling​ ​for​ ​the​ ​group.​ ​They’ve​ ​had​ ​a​ ​very interesting​ ​career,​ ​and​ ​will​ ​undoubtedly​ ​have​ ​some​ ​great​ ​stories​ ​to​ ​tell​ ​at​ ​this event,”​ ​said​ ​Dixie​ ​Griffin,​ ​manager​ ​of​ ​the​ ​Hall​ ​of​ ​Fame.
After​ ​brief​ ​introductory​ ​remarks,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​unveiling,​ ​members​ ​and​ ​associates of​ ​the​ ​group​ ​will​ ​have​ ​opportunities​ ​to​ ​share​ ​stories​ ​and​ ​memories​ ​about​ ​the band.​ ​This​ ​will​ ​be​ ​followed​ ​by​ ​a​ ​Q&A.
The​ ​opening​ ​remarks​ ​will​ ​begin​ ​at​ ​2:30​ ​pm,​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Q&A​ ​is​ ​expected​ ​to​ ​be over​ ​at​ ​4:30​ ​pm.​ ​This​ ​event​ ​will​ ​be​ ​free​ ​to​ ​the​ ​public.
