Bikers and Blues off to great start
By BARRY BURLESON
The fourth annual Bikers Night in Blues Alley had a successful kickoff last Thursday night.
“It was great,” said Shanette Folsom, executive director of the Holly Springs Main Street Chamber. “I thought it was a big success, and I look forward to the rest of the summer. It’s only going to get better.”
Folsom said more than 35 bikers rolled into the downtown area for the festivities, plus a good crowd lined both sides of the alley for the music. The feature band, taking the stage around 8:30 p.m., was 5th Element Nation from Birmingham, Ala. Entertainment was also provided by Just Doing Something from Abbeville and Jeff Farese of Ashland.
As usual, there was plenty of toe-tapping, hand-clapping and dancing in the street.
Folsom emphasized that all artists performing at Bikers and Blues are doing so as a courtesy to Main Street, helping promote the blues and Holly Springs.
“They are not getting paid, and we are so very appreciative of all of them as they showcase their talents,” she said.
Bikers Night in Blues Alley is free to the public.
There are vendors on hand, selling a variety of food items, plus T-shirts are available for purchase from the Main Street Chamber table.
Bikers Night in Blues Alley will continue each Thursday, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., through September 26.
The entertainment lineup for this Thursday, July 18, includes Phase 2.
