I was tired of seeing chainsaw artists always sculpting bears with their chainsaws, so I wanted to create something different
Elma, New York (PRWEB) September 01, 2012
September 7th kicks off the Made In America Store’s two day 9/11 Tribute Concert Event and there will be plenty to do for the family. The Made In America Store, located in Elma, New York, is getting ready to host one of the biggest events of September and people from all over Western New York are coming to enjoy the festivities. Matt Hannah from “Insane Chain” will be performing live chainsaw demonstrations on both September 7th and 8th.
Matt Hannah is a former US Marine who came home to an economy that was less than stable. Mark Andol, Owner and Creator of the Made In America Store, offered Hannah the job of performing live chainsaw demonstration after seeing some of his artwork Hannah had created. Since 2010, Andol and Hannah have brought wooden sculptures to life at each of the store’s events.
Since joining the Made In America Store, Hannah has sculpted Guitar Tributes, American Eagles, Jack-o’-Lanterns, 7 Piece Benches, Underwater Shark & Coral Sculptures and so much more. At the Elma, New York location sits a giant wooden sculpture of the Flag Raising at Iwo Jima in front of the store. The sculpture received so much positive feedback that two US Marines that were actually on Iwo Jima during the Flag Raising were invited to the store to see the memorial. The memorial sculpture brought a tear to one of the Marine’s eyes.
"I was tired of seeing chainsaw artists always sculpting bears with their chainsaws, so I wanted to create something different," says Hannah, whose been sculpting for the Made In America Store for two years.
Headlining the entertainment both nights will be Nashville recording artist Ricky Lee, who be joined by band member Matt Pletcher, starting at 8:30pm. On Saturday night, they’ll be joined by the rest of Ricky’s band, The Mustangs.
Both nights, these headliners will be preceded on stage by other talented local band
There will be plenty of food, too, including Hamburgers, Hot Dogs , BBQ Pulled Pork, and Smoked Chicken, all provided by Dale’s Rollin’ Smoke BBQ.
