Bikers/blues wraps up with good attendance
By SUE WATSON
The last Bikers Night in Blues Alley for the year drew a crowd of about 500 Thursday and 50 bikes.
Weather was good and the public enjoyed good music and dancing and food. Entertainment was provided by Mr. Sam (Sam Fallie, "Love Attack” album, Memphis), Will Easley (“Don't Ya Like It,” voted number one entertainer in Alabama), Funk Rhythm Blues band of North Mississippi, and Ms. Sheila of Memphis with Melvino Smith.
Other performers for the season were Holly Springs entertainers Duwayne Burnside, Cedric Burnside, the Davide House Band and Elvis Campbell, Lightning Malcolm from Victoria, Cameron Kimbrough of Potts Camp, Adam Gussow and AM Band from Oxford, and Reverend John Wilkins, gospel singer from DeSoto County.
“We want to thank all artists who performed free to the public this season and to thank Harold Moncrief with R&R Sound for providing the audio system, Donald Street for providing the stage and Danny “Little D” Lewis for serving as emcee,” said Rebecca Bourgeois, with the promotions committee.
“We definitely want to thank the city and the police and fire departments for blocking off the streets and providing patrol,” she said.
The Holly Springs Main Street promotion committee will begin meeting soon to organize and plan for next years Bikers Night Out.
