“BREAKFAST CLUB” to Perform at Clayton Town Square Concert on August 7

The original 80's tribute band, “The Breakfast Club” will perform at the Clayton Town Square Concert Series on Thursday, August 7 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Formed in December 1993, The Breakfast Club was the very first tribute band of its kind in the country. Created by Jerry Finley, who has worked with such 80's music legends as The Romantics and The Hooters, the band continues to be the most requested and widely marketable 80's tribute band in the southeast USA.

To date, The Breakfast Club guys have performed for British royalty, movie stars, rock legends, some of the world's top corporations, and more than two million of the most amazing fans a band of any kind could ever hope for.

The Clayton Town Square Concert Series is presented by the Clayton Downtown Development Association. All concerts begin at 7:00 pm and the final concert of the series will feature a Battle of the Bands on September 18.
Refreshments available at the Town Square will include pizza, hot dogs, beer, wine and soft drinks. Although folding chairs and blankets are encouraged for people to sit on, coolers are not allowed.

Sponsors for the concert series include Town of Clayton, Time Warner Cable, Clayton News Star, Novo Nordisk Pharmaceuticals, and Clayton Steak House. Contributing sponsors include Avent-Permenter Group Appraisals, Clayton Glass & Mirror, Hometowne Realty, Matthews Motors and True Line Surveying.

I hate that I'll miss this one-you're sure to get a big crowd for this one. You should have everyone dress up like the 80's and have a contest for the best costume!
