Tonight is the kickoff for this summer’s concert series in Statesville called Friday After Five. It runs from 5:30PM to 8:30PM. There’s beer, wine, soft drinks and food available for purchase. See more information and the entire summer schedule HERE.
Tonight’s band is the legendary Catalinas. I remember that name from back when I was still in high school. Back then, if you went somewhere that the Catalinas were playing, you knew you were in for a good time. Have not seen them in a long time. There have been a few personnel changes since then. I doubt that a bunch of 70 year olds can party down for that long at a time. I know that back then I played tenor sax in a local beach music band know as the Just Six band (although we eventually fudged and added a seventh player). We could start at seven and play until midnight before we were worn out. Now, I’d say a spirited half hour would probably finish us off.
Check out downtown Statesville. Got some neat things happening there.
