The Southern rock band Molly Hatchet makes a stop at the Historic Everett Theatre on Friday.

Doors open at 6 p.m. The Charlies band from Mukilteo opens the concert at 7 p.m. and Molly Hatchet comes on around 8 p.m.

The theater is located at 2911 Colby Ave. More information is available at www.historiceveretttheatre.org or call 425-258-6766.

Molly Hatchet is named for a legendary prostitute who allegedly beheaded and mutilated her clients.

Formed in 1975, the band is perhaps best known for its self-titled, platinum debut album as well as its next one, “Flirtin’ With Disaster.”

A tumultuous couple of decades for the band was followed with its resurrection in the late 1990s and the release of several new albums, including “Justice” in 2010. Lead guitarist Dave Hlubek is the only original member of the six-piece band.

The Charlies, begun in 2011, includes Justin Peterson on rhythm guitar, drummer Matt Martin, Char Bailey on bass and lead guitarist Matt Dickson.

Peterson is a songwriter who records in his home-made Red Rose Studio in Mukilteo. Martin owns a business in Mukilteo and has played drums in church much of his life. Bailey, also with a church background, lives in Mukilteo. Dickson, who joined the band in 2012, hails from Bellevue.
