Duck Dynasty stars to appear in Faulkner benefit in Montgomery

Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Get your camo gear ready and prepare for an evening of fun. Faulkner University is bringing the A&E Network’s Duck Dynasty to Montgomery. Si and Willie Robertson, from the wildly popular TV show, are scheduled to appear at 7 p.m. on March 23 at the Montgomery Renaissance Convention Center.

The Duck Dynasty reality show follows the lives of the Robertson family, a Louisiana bayou family who turned a backyard business making duck calls into a multimillion dollar sports and entertainment enterprise. The men in the Robertson family are known not only for their large beards, camouflage clothing and eccentric ways but also for staying true to their faith and family values.

Si Robertson is brother to company founder Phil Robertson. Si’s job in the family business is making reeds to insert into the duck calls, but he’s known on the TV show for his antics and humorous storytelling, including stories about his time serving in Vietnam and the blue plastic cup he always carries with him.

Willie Robertson is both CEO of the company and frequent prankster. A graduate of Harding University, he helped build the business and make the family self-described “redneck millionaires.”
