Attendance grows for weekly blues event
The lineup for this Thursday evening’s Bikers Night Out/Blues Alley includes Brown Sugar, Funk Rhythm and Blues Band of North Mississippi and Stacy Marino of Memphis, Tenn., according to Holly Springs Main Street Chamber board president Andy McMillon.
Last week’s attendance at the event was the largest this season, according to promotions committee chairman Fanny Lampley.
“Thursday night was great,” she said. “We had over 850 people – a wonderful crowd. Davide House Band delivered and the crowd very much enjoyed them as well as local entertainer Brown Sugar.
“People are coming and they are enjoying the entertainment and fellowship.”
The music, dancing and attendance have been exceptional this season, said promotion committee volunteer Lisa Liddy.
“I sold out of (Main Street) T-shirts (last week),” Liddy said. “We had between 25 and 30 motorcycles and two food vendors.”
Bikers Night opens at 6 p.m. on the downtown square Thursday. Entertainment is set for 7 p.m. The event continues every Thursday night through September.
Admission is free. Bring lawn chairs for comfortable seating. This is an all-family entertainment event.
