Main Street Live will move from Heart to rhythm and blues in this week’s installment of the summer concert series. Entice will take the stage at 7 p.m.
From Nashville, the band consists of founding members Eugene, Renee and Derel Ewing, as well as Virgue Ewing, Ron Ballentine, Rick Ward and horn players Chris Harris and Karl Wingruber. Six to eight members play a show.
Entice has performed at country clubs, corporate events, wedding receptions and universities across the United States.
The band is not a newcomer to the Main Street Live stage. It has played Main Street Live twice, including opening for the series in 2010 and attracting more than 1,000 visitors.
“We always have a good time performing in McMinnville,” said Eugene. “We always try to get the crowd involved. When that happens, it makes a better time for everybody. The crowd in McMinnville seems to really enjoy it.”
In order to get a crowd on its feet, the band plays songs like, “Bad Girls,” “Boogie Oogie Oogie,” “My Girl,” “Aint to Proud to Beg,” “Back in Love,” “Billie Jean,” “Brickhouse,” “Brown-Eyed Girl,” “Electric Slide,” “Get Down On It,” “Give it to Me Baby,” and “Mustang Sally.”
There will be a variety of food and beverages available from vendors. Parking and admission are free so bring a chair and enjoy the music. Come early and stake out a good spot.
Entice will take the stage and begin entertaining at 7 p.m. on the West Lawn of Security Federal. Food and beverage vendors open at 6 p.m. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Smoking is not allowed in the crowd.
