Mercury Recording Artist Jessie James To Perform National Anthem At Mirabito Outdoor Classic

February 9, 2010 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Syracuse Crunch News Release

Syracuse, NY - The Syracuse Crunch announced today that Mercury recording artist Jessie James will perform the national anthem at the Mirabito Outdoor Classic, the AHL's first-ever outdoor game, featuring the host Crunch against the Binghamton Senators at the New York State Fairgrounds on February 20, 2010.

Jessie James made headlines when she rose to #1 on the Pop iTunes Chart and #1 on Amazon's MP3 chart with her self titled debut album. It was fueled by the Top 20 Pop Song success of its first single, "Wanted," the full-throttle dance-rock scorcher that Jessie co-wrote with American Idol judge and hit songwriter Kara DioGuardi (along with Mitch Allen and David Hodges).

Born on a military base in Italy and raised in Georgia, James' music is described as a mix of pop and country. In addition, she performed as the opening act for Jordin Sparks, The Fray and just recently wrapped up 'Tour for the Troops' with Kid Rock and comedian, Carlos Mencia, this past Christmas.

Tickets for the Mirabito Outdoor Classic are priced at $30 for end grandstand and $40 for center grandstand seating. Group pricing begins at 20 tickets and range as low as $26.

In addition, tickets can be purchased by calling the Crunch office at (315) 473- 4444, calling TicketMaster at 1-800-745-3000 or by stopping by the Oncenter Box Office, located on the State Street Side of the War Memorial.

The Mirabito Outdoor Classic, the American Hockey League's first-ever outdoor game, is scheduled to be played on February 20, 2010 at 1 p.m. at the New York State Fairgrounds against the Binghamton Senators.
