Sister Hazel, the five-piece rock band from Gainesville, Florida, has announced its sixth annual Hazelnut Hang at the Windjammer in Isle of Palms, South Carolina, for June 3 – June 5, 2011. The Hazelnut Hang, which the band created as a way to interact more closely with their fans, is a weekend gathering of fans, friends, and the band members to share music, food, and fun, with plenty of time to hang out together. There will be two ticket packages available to Hang attendees, each offering fans different goodies. Fans should be aware that the top-tier package is extremely limited and will sell out quickly. All details are available beginning today at www.rockridgemusic.com/hazelnuthang and tickets are on sale beginning today at www.the-windjammer.com. Confirmed to be joining the performance slate for the weekend are Brian Jarvis on June 3rd and TFDI (Tony Lucca, Matt Duke, Jay Nash) on June 4th.
