First Town Square Concert A Success...Despite Weather!

Between 300-400 Nantucket fans showed up in downtown Clayton for the kick-off concert of the Town Square Concert Series last Thursday night. The place would have been packed with double that number of people had the weather forecast been more favorable. But the crowd was enthusiastic and loyal, even as it began to sprinkle shortly after Nantucket took to the stage.

Before that, Raleigh-based Groove Pilot (left) took the stage,with their mix of classic rock to high energy, rock edge dance. There was a bit of a Clayton connection: band member Joe Fox owns Olde Town Supply on E Main Street in downtown Clayton!

Headliner NANTUCKET took the stage shortly after 7 pm and put on another great show, even as the rain began to fall. They put on a great show with frontman Larry Uzell, Tommy Redd (guitar & vocals), Larry Uzzell (vocals), Mike Uzzell (keyboard & vocals), Eddie Blair (sax, keyboard & vocals), Glen Edwards (drums & vocals), and Bennie Dellinger (guitar & vocals).

You are getting a reputation as a rain maker at this point! You may be able to take the crown from Chris Johnson afterall!
