Federal and Remington Ammunition Become VIP Sponsor of SHOT Show All-Star Jam Concert

LAS VEGAS — NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, is thrilled to announce that Federal and Remington Ammunition, along with sister brands CCI, Hevi-Shot and Speer, have signed on as a VIP sponsor of the 2023 SHOT Show’s All-Star Jam—a free, private concert for all SHOT Show® attendees featuring some of the most notable names in rock and country music.

Presented by Outdoor Sportsman Group—with VIP Sponsors Federal, Remington and Glock—the concert will feature Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Johnny Van Zant, Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie Montgomery and a special surprise guest to be named. It will take place Jan. 18 outside Caesars Forum, next to the SHOT Show’s Great Outdoors Plaza.

“These ammo brands are some of the most recognizable in our industry and are a huge part of the SHOT Show each year,” said Chris Dolnack, NSSF Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Officer. “We can’t thank them enough for their outstanding support of NSSF and the SHOT Show, and for stepping up to support this awesome new All-Star Jam experience for all in the industry to enjoy.”

Federal and Remington Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink states, “The SHOT Show is a critical event for NSSF and the vitality of our industry. It’s the perfect place to celebrate our freedoms, product innovation and our industry’s iconic American brands. We’re proud to support this new SHOT After Dark series as another way to bring companies, customers and leaders in our industry together to strengthen our businesses.”

Part of a new series of events called “SHOT After Dark,” the concert will be on Wednesday evening right after show hours. Tuesday evening will feature an Industry Welcome Reception happy hour, and a Networking Reception will be held on Thursday evening, both being held out on the Caesars Plaza.

For three decades, Johnny Van Zant has carried on the legacy of his late brother, Ronnie Van Zant, as the lead singer of legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd and one half of duo Van Zant alongside his brother, Donnie Van Zant of .38 Special.

Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry recently released “Outskirts,” a seven-song EP. With 20-plus charted singles, the Kentucky native has earned CMA, ACM and GRAMMY awards and nominations with undeniable blue-collar anthems.

More details, and the name of the All-Star Jam surprise guest, will be shared in the coming days.
