Wind up the work week listening and dancing to the best in musical entertainment! This week’s feature performer is True Blues, a Greenville and Upstate South Carolina mainstay.
True Blues has become a Greenville and Upstate South Carolina mainstay since its inception in 1990. They started as a power trio with Joey Gunter on guitar and vocals, Pete Cash on bass, and Pete’s brother Joe Cash on drums. In 2003, they added Bill Pappas from Athens, GA on keyboards and guitar.
Members of the band write about half of the material they play, which ranges from straight-ahead blues, to rockin’ Texas style blues, to jazzy blues, to songs that can be categorized only as original “True Blues”. In addition, they cover songs by B. B. King, The Allman Brothers Band, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and others.
This weekly music series on Main Street at NOMA Square continues through Sept. 25, 2015. The event site opens at 5:30 pm and closes at 9:30 pm, with bands playing two sets at 5:50 pm and 7:40 pm. Main Street Friday features a variety of music, including jazz, blues, oldies and soul music.
In addition, the Kids’ Zone features fun-filled inflatables and activities add to the family fun.
