CHESTER, Vt. – The Green Mountain Booster Club will be hosting some very special guests Thursday, March 14 at 7 p.m. at Green Mountain Union High School. The Harlem Rockets, a talented group of basketball entertainers who combine incredible showtime basketball skills and family-friendly comedy, will face the GM Dream Team in a game benefiting the Green Mountain Booster Club

Having played over 2,500 games in 16 years without a single defeat, the Harlem Rockets offer something for everyone to enjoy. Sports enthusiasts will be intrigued by the athleticism and size of the Rockets.

Basketball aficionados will be dazzled by the long range accuracy of “General Electric” Junie Sanders. Satiated by the extraordinary tricks and ball-handling skills of Solomom Bamira, a former Harlem Globetrotter. The building will be rocking with the thunderous dunks of the high-flying “Jet Blue” Cliff Malone.

And since this is comedy basketball, the Harlem Rockets present to you the “All-Time Funny Man” and one of show basketball’s greats: James “Speedy” Williams, who was featured in the movie “Above The Rim,” starring Tupac Shakur and Duane Martin. Speedy was also one of the “Original Nike Free-Style Ballers” in Nike commercial. Speedy also performed live at the MTV Music Awards while Jay-Z did his thing. Better known as the “Crowned Prince Of Laughs.”

The Harlem Rockets incorporate the audience, especially children, into the show and are always available to meet the fans and give autographs at halftime and after the game.

In this special event to raise money for the Green Mountain Booster Club, the GM Dream Team has graciously agreed to face the Harlem Rockets.

Tickets for what promises to be a fun-filled evening for the community are available at Chester Town Office, Green Mountain Union High School and Main Street Scoops or at the door.
