Classic rock will take center stage this Friday night when the Main Street Live summer concert series continues with the Joe Harvey Band.

The band is raring to go, so expect a high-energy performance.

“We’re coming out of quarantine like a caged animal,” said Harvey, with a laugh. “Our last performance was November of 2019. We were set to play Main Street Live in 2020, but the series was canceled the week we were supposed to perform. I’m at a loss for words to accurately express how excited we are about Friday night.”

Rain could be the only threat.

“We’re hoping for the same type of weather the last two acts had,” said Harvey. “It was perfect weather for an outdoor concert venue. We have our fingers crossed, because we want this concert to happen.”

Formed in 2002, the Joe Harvey Band also has members Kevin Harvey on bass, Lee Carr on guitar, Evan Gross on drums and Andy Wilhite on guitar. Together they offer a combination of classic rock, blues, alternative rock, and modern rock.

The Vietnam Veterans of America Royce Davenport Chapter would like to remind music listeners to bring a nonperishable food item. 

“We’re having a pretty good year and we hope it continues,” said VVA president Mark E. Livengood of the collection effort. “People have been very generous. We appreciate it.”

Members collect nonperishable food items during the concert series. On June 18 and June 25, a total of 211 items were collected. Donations are delivered to Warren County Emergency Food Bank. Collection sites are located on both sides of the stage and are clearly marked. 

Events are free thanks to sponsorship by Dr Pepper Bottling Company, the Law Offices of Galligan and Newman, Security Federal Savings Bank, Ascension Saint Thomas River Park Hospital, Middle Tennessee Natural Gas, Ben Lomand Connect, city of McMinnville, Peg Broadcasting and the Southern Standard, your source for local news.
