Get ready to rock like 1978! North Carolina’s own “Nantucket” will be kicking off Clayton’s 2007 Town Square Concert Series on April 19 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
The concert is a wonderful way to relax with the family and friends after work, according to Downtown Development Coordinator Bruce Naegelen. He added, “It’s also a great opportunity to have dinner at one of the great local restaurants and visit the other shops and businesses that are available downtown.”
Nantucket has issued five albums from 1978 to 1984 and songs like “Heartbreaker,” “Born in a Honky Tonk” and “Timebomb” are sure to evoke youthful memories for many. All but one of the original band members are still together: Larry Uzzell, Tommy Redd, Eddie Blair, Mike Uzzell and Mark Downing continue to play the music that made them famous. During their career Nantucket shared the stage with AC/DC, Kiss, Charlie Daniels, Molly Hatchet, Black Oak Arkansas, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Humble Pie, Cheap Trick, Jimmy Buffett, Ted Nugent, Elton John and many more.
The free concert is sponsored by the Town of Clayton and Downtown Development Association, with major support from Caterpillar, NovoNordisk, and Clayton News Star. Additional support comes from Avent-Permenter Group, Clayton Glass & Mirror, Hudson’s Hardware, Matthews Motors, McLaurin Funeral Home, Morning Glory Inn, and Trueline Surveying.
The Town Square is in downtown Clayton and sits between West Main Street and S. O’Neil and Fayetteville streets. For more information call (919) 553-1737 and for updates check the Downtown Clayton blog.
