Thursday blues event drawing big crowds
With attendance strong at this year’s Bikers Night Out/Blues Alley, the promotions committee is hoping for another good crowd of music lovers, bikers, and dancers this Thursday night.
Andy McMillon, president of the Holly Springs Main Street Chamber board of directors, said the crowd just seems to get bigger and bigger each week.
The crowd was estimated by some observers to be between 600 to 700 last Thursday.
“Last week was fantastic,” said Main Street volunteer Lisa Liddy. “We had about 30 bikers. The crowd and the music were great.”
The line-up this week, is 6:30 to 7:30, E-Camp; 7:30 to 8:30, Davide House Band; and 8:30 to 10, Brown Sugar.
Bring lawn chairs and enjoy the music, dancing and people watching. Food and drinks will be sold.
“The crowds have been warm, welcoming and supportive,” said Fannie Lampley, chairman of the promotions committee for Main Street. “Come on out and enjoy yourself. Listen to the blues and meet your neighbor.”
Thanks go to Harold Moncrief and Rust College for providing the stage and sound system.
