With temperatures unusually high this time of year, Main Street Live organizers are hoping to cool things off with a trip to the beach. Taking the stage this Friday night will be Four on the Floor.
The band is back by popular demand. It is the most requested Main Street Live band thus far, says Main Street McMinnville executive director Carla King.
“They have a huge following and are always a crowd pleaser,” King said. “We want to encourage everyone to wear their most colorful Hawaiian shirt and get ready to party.”
Four on the Floor is a five-member band from Fayetteville – Dwight King, Pat Sloan, Rusty Reeves, Jim Sloan and Joe Widner. The band will be playing a beach party theme.
 Since 1986, the band has played everything from public to private parties, and made several appearances at Main Street Live.
“We just enjoying playing at these kinds of events,” said King. “We always have a good crowd in Warren County. We can’t wait to return.”
King says the band loves playing at events where they can get close to the audience.
“I’ve played at events where we are on a stage and the audience is kept away. It’s not a good set up. The best places to play are those where you are right next to the audience.”
When it comes to Main Street Live specifically, King has praise for the concert series.
“Carla really knows what she’s doing,” he said. “Other Main Street programs could learn a lot from her. She has a wide array of bands offering different styles of music. There’s something for everyone.”
Four on the Floor plays a vast array of music from the soulful sounds of the ’50s and ’60s to the pop, disco and dance tunes of the ’70s and ’80s.
Songs include “867-5309” by Tommy Tutone, “Brick House” by The Commodores, “Footloose” by Kenny Loggins, “Get Down Tonight” by KC & the Sunshine Band, “Hurts So Good” by John Mellencamp, “I Feel Good” by James Brown, “Mustang Sally” by Wilson Pickett, “Pretty Woman” by Roy Orbison, “Earth Angel” by The Penguins, “Lovin’ Touchin’ Squeezin’” by Journey, and “Caribbean Queen” by Billy Ocean.
River Park Hospital is working on cooling things off even more with a visit from Channel 4’s Snowbird. The mascot will be holding a meet and greet just prior to the band taking the stage. 
A hula hoop contest will heat up the evening during intermission. Also, beach balls will be popping through the air in the crowd, according to King.
“We are also trying to arrange for the volleyball net from McMinnville Parks and Recreation,” said Carla.
There will be a variety of food and beverages available from food vendors. Parking and admission are free, so bring a chair and enjoy the music. Come early and stake out a good spot.
Four on the Floor will take the stage and begin entertaining at 7 p.m. on the West Lawn of Security Federal downtown. Food and beverage vendors open at 6 p.m. Alcoholic beverages are prohibited. Smoking is not allowed in the crowd.
