Main Street Murfreesboro‘s final 2018 “Friday Night Live” concert series in downtown Murfreesboro will feature a heavy dose of True Blue energy.
Middle Tennessee State University is one of the sponsors for the Friday, Sept. 7, event from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the Rutherford County Courthouse square. Featured performance will be by the soul band Everyday People.
The free, public event is also part of MTSU’s Connection Point, a campus program that spotlights certain events to get students more involved in the life of the university. A Connection Point table will be set up at Friday Night Live where students can use their mobile devices and swipe in with their myMT event pass QR code to get credit for their attendance.
MT Athletics will have giveaways and the MTSU Office of Alumni Relations will also have a tent set up. Athletic Director Chris Massaro will provide brief remarks before the featured act to remind the crowd about the Saturday, Sept. 8, home football opener against the University of Tennessee-Martin Skyhawks. Kickoff is at 6 p.m. at Floyd Stadium.
Presenting concert series sponsor is Wilson Bank & Trust with National Dance Clubs and Medicare Health Benefits joining MTSU as the September concert sponsors. Bring your lawn chairs and dancing shoes!
According Main Street Murfreesboro, Everyday People was started by Wendell Bigsby-Church and Katrice Donaldson in 2011. Wendell “Bizz,” eldest son of Nashville legend Jimmy Church, has opened up for James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Lil Richard and many more. Donaldson has sung backup for Yolanda Adams on the Dove Awards, BeBe Winans, Kirk Franklin and many other elite artists.
Their band “hosts dynamic talents from Nashville natives and all-American transplants who have dedicated their lives to their craft,” according to Main Street.
