Summer Concert Series Begins this Weekend

June 18, 2014

Time is flying by, as we are already only a few days out before the start of Main Street Elberton’s summer concert series.

Debuting for the concert series will be the Mike Watson Band, based out of Atlanta, GA.

Assistant Director of Community Affairs Tiffany Mercer describes the type of music the band plays.

“They’re actually a blues band out of Atlanta; I went and checked them out because I like to hear the bands lives before we bring them to Elberton just to make sure we have some good music lined up. They really rocked it out and were impressive”, said Gibbons.

One perk about the concert series says Gibbons, is the chance local residents have to check out and utilize downtown Elberton.

“Make sure you come downtown and get a bite to eat, because it is starting at 8:00pm, so you have plenty of time to stop into Richards or check out Papa’s or anywhere in Elberton and get you a bite to eat, and get your belly full, and then get ready to have a fun evening”, said Gibbons.

The Mike Watson Band takes the stage on McIntosh Street this Saturday, June 21st beginning at 8:00pm and playing until 10:00pm.

There is no admission charge to attend the concert, as it is a free to the public event.
