SRS Distribution knows how to throw a good time for a good cause, as attendees to the 2020 International Roofing Expo (IRE) in Dallas know. At that event, guests enjoyed music from legendary rock band Journey and were treated to a keynote address from former President George W. Bush.
The Dallas-based roofing and building supply distributor is back for IRE 2021 with another memorable concert on Aug. 11 at the House of Blues in Mandalay Bay. This year’s event will feature country music group Little Big Town and Darius Rucker, from Hootie and the Blowfish fame.
First formed in 1998, the three-time Grammy Award-winning Little Big Town still consists of its original band lineup, creating popular country hits like “Pontoon,” “Girl Crush” and “Better Man” and a discography of nine albums. Mandalay Bay is just one stop on their latest tour, which features dates well into the end of the year.
Joining them at the House of Blues is Rucker, who after achieving success as the lead vocalist and guitarist for ‘90s sensation Hootie and the Blowfish, flourished as a solo country music artist. In 2009, he became the first Black American to win the New Artist Award from the Country Music Association, and the second Black person to receive an award from the association.
All money raised by the concert goes directly to National Women in Roofing, the Roofing Alliance, and the SRS Raise the Roof Foundation. Guest speakers this year include members of National Women in Roofing and the Roofing Alliance as part of SRS’ commitment to improving diversity and inclusion in the roofing industry.
The nonprofit SRS Raise the Roof Foundation was formed in 2012 as a way for SRS to give back to its communities, often championing causes like support for veterans and disaster relief. All food and drinks are included for the event, so SRS encourages guests to come hungry, thirsty and ready to support great causes.
