Friday night’s installment of Main Street Live will have a band that is back by popular demand, as well as a humorous first in the history of the program.
Thunder Creek will be taking the stage Friday night for the fourth installment of the summer concert series. Intermission will include a comedy skit from Matt Edwards.
“We are looking forward to it,” said band member Nick Bouldin. “It’s supposed to be really hot, but we are hoping for a huge crowd.”
The band has eight members – Bouldin on guitar and vocals, Brian Vinson on vocals, Lisa Davis on vocals, Billy Wood on drums, Steve Harvey on guitar, congas and vocals, Dale Davis on keyboard, Alec Davis on bass, and Weston Davis on guitar.
The local band played Main Street Live last year. Bouldin says the crowd’s reaction was more than what was expected.
“It went well,” he said. “We got a good response from the crowd. I don’t like to brag, but we are pretty good. We aren’t conceited, though. When it turns out really good, we are still shocked and ask each other, ‘Did that just happen?’ We just can’t believe it.”
Thunder Creek is a classic rock band that performs music from The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, among others.
“Lisa does a great rendition of Carole King’s ‘Natural Woman’ song,” said Bouldin. “Everyone seems to really like it.”
Edwards, the first comedian to take the Main Street Live stage, will offer a comedy skit approximately one hour into the two-hour show.
“I’m really looking forward to Main Street Live,” said Edwards. “I’ve been doing standup comedy for about six years. I work mostly in night clubs and bars. The most recent was at the VFW.”
Main Street McMinnville executive director Carla King says she has considered adding comedy to the show for the last few years and thinks it will be a crowd-pleaser.
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.
Thunder Creek 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.
