Pink Cadillac will be taking the stage this Friday night at 7 p.m. in the final 2015 installment of Main Street Live summer concert series. The opening act will be McMinnville’s Silver and Gold Band at 5:30 p.m.
Pink Cadillac band members met on Craig’s List and have been together since January 2010. This will be their second visit to the Main Street Live stage.
“I advertised on Craig’s List so everyone from this band came from that,” band organizer Mark Miller said. “We play on the weekends and really enjoy it. We play about three to four times a month. We’re looking forward to playing Main Street Live.”
Miller is a former member of the 1960s band The Grass Roots. The band performed on many national and local TV shows in the 1970s including “Midnight Special,” “Shindig,” and “The Dick Clark Oldies Show.” Hits include “Sooner or Later,” “Midnight Confessions,” “Temptation Eyes,” “Two Divided by Love,” and “Live for Today.” Miller was a semi-regular on “The Gong Show.”
Pink Cadillac has a wide array of songs in its set list including “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green, “Baby I Love You” and “Chain of Fools” by Aretha Franklin, “Pink Cadillac” by Bruce Springsteen, “Money” by The Beatles, “Rocky Top” by Bryant Brothers, and “Brick House” by The Commodores.
Rounding out the band’s other members are Mark Schaffel on keyboard, Sally Pledger on vocals, Cindy Shelton on vocals, Kasey McCormick on vocals, Joe Dorn on drums and tracks, Scott Steward on trumpet and vocals, Chris Dunn on trombone and horn arrangements, and Carl Melberg on bass.
McMinnville’s Silver and Gold Band will be taking the stage at 5:30 p.m. and will perform for approximately an hour. According to Neil Schultz, the band will offer a mixture of music.
“We’re going to offer a mixture of popular music,” said Schultz. “We hope everyone comes out and enjoys themselves. We’ll play approximately an hour, or until they kick us off the stage. There will be a lot going on as Pink Cadillac sets up so we’ll play until they need us to get off the stage.”
American Legion will be accepting non-perishable food for the Warren County Emergency Food Bank during this year’s Main Street Live events. Donations can be placed in marked boxes located next to the stage.
Because Main Street Live is a family oriented event, alcoholic beverages are prohibited and smoking is not allowed in the crowd. All animals need to be leashed and owners must clean up after their pets.
Pink Cadillac will take the stage and begin entertaining at 7 p.m. on the West Lawn of Security Federal.
There will be a variety of food and beverages available from vendors beginning at 6 p.m. Parking and admission are free. Bring a chair and enjoy the music.
