Taking the stage this Friday night will be the band Entice for the second installment of the Main Street Live summer concert series.
The band has lived up to its name in the past by bringing a wide array of music and getting the crowd on its feet by going out into the audience and bringing people on stage.
“We try and get the crowd involved,” said band member Eugene Ewing. “When that happens, it makes a better time for everybody. The crowd in McMinnville seemed to really enjoy it.”
From Nashville, the band consists of founding members Eugene, Renee and Derel Ewing, as well as Rodney Lawson, Kenny Phillips, Rod Allen and Myyah Lockhart.
Entice has performed at country clubs, corporate events, wedding receptions and universities across the United States in the past 13 years. The group has opened for The Gap Band, The Ohio Players, Dr. Hook, Midnight Star, Solo, Evelyn Champagne King, Bobby Blue Band, and many others.
The band has a vast repertoire of music going back into the 1950s up to today’s current sounds, including “1, 2 Step” by Ciara, “Aint too proud to Beg” by The Temptations, “Mustang Sally” by Otis Redding, “Brickhouse” and “Easy” by The Commodores, “Electric Slide” by Marcia Griffith, “I Wanna love You” by Akon, and “Play that Funky Music” by Wild Cherry.
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.
