Hallelujah! NashTones brought the music, while Warren County enjoyed a cool, relaxing evening filled with a wide array of jams.
“I’m glad they did this tonight and not last night,” said Richard Griffin, vocals and sax player for NashTones. “It’s significantly cooler tonight than it was last night.”
A severe thunderstorm moved through Warren County earlier Friday. While the numerous downed trees were not welcome, the front did cause a welcome dip in temperature. Noon temperature was 91 and climbing. By the time the concert started at 7 p.m., it was 10 degrees cooler.
NashTones did attempt to heat things back up by kicking off the first set with “Hallelujah, I Love Her So” followed by “Soul Man,” “Happy,” “I’ll Be Around,” “Stray Cat Strut,” “Knock on Wood,” “Sharp Dressed Man,” and “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” among others.
During this installment of Main Street Live, patrons were given the chance to save lives. Blood Assurance was holding a blood drive. One donation can save up to three lives. The donor bus was parked in the parking lot of Security Federal Savings Bank.
This Friday night is Caryl Mack. The Americana singer takes the stage June 24. For more information, see Wednesday’s edition of the Southern Standard.
