"Kickin' It Loose" benefit concert for Smyrna's volunteer fire company, Citizens' Hose Company, also features The Jones Boys and the John Loring Band

Smyrna's volunteer fire company, Citizens' Hose Company, is hosting a concert fundraiser in March featuring the Scooter Brown Band from Nashville.

The "Kickin' It Loose" concert will be held Saturday, March 24 at the fire station, 103 W. Commerce St., Smyrna.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m., to the sounds of popular local band, The Jones Boys.

Next up will be the John Loring Band coming all the way from Houston, Texas to make their Delaware debut.

Headlining the concert will be the Scooter Brown Band from Nashville, Tennessee. SBB is a hot up-and-coming band now touring the country with the Charlie Daniels Band, Travis Tritt and the Marshall Tucker Band. With strong connections to our nation’s military – two of their members are veterans – SBB plays gritty, red dirt country music with a southern rock kick. Their albums are available on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Music. Their newest single, "American Son," features country music legend and Hall of Fame honoree Charlie Daniels.

Food will be available for purchase from Lower Slower Cue!

Need for funds greater than past years

Citizens' Hose Company is an all-volunteer fire company that depends on funding from a variety of sources including donations and state, county and town grants.

However, the Delaware Legislature cut grant-in-aid funds for most non-profit groups by 20 percent. For Citizens' Hose Company, that means a loss of $27,047 annually. Fundraisers like this concert are being held to fill that gap.

The volunteers in Citizens' Hose Company serve the entire Smyrna area including Kent County and portions of New Castle County, a population of roughly 32,500 people and 68 square miles.
