Music on Main event set for Friday

The Downtown Special Events Organization will host “Music on Main” at 7 p.m. Friday on Main Street between Second and Third avenues.

This is a monthly event that features outstanding musical entertainment. Friday’s event will feature three bands from the Pine Bluff and Southeast Arkansas area — The Brian Austin Blues Band, Band 357 and The Platinum Blues Band. The music will range from blues, blues rock and jazz, featuring hits loved by all as well as original music.

There will be concession stands and food for sale prepared by Harold Terry and his staff at Terry’s Home Cooking Express Restaurant.

The event is free and is family-oriented. Participants are asked to bring a lawn chair, and come out for a great evening of music.

Music on Main takes place on the first Friday of each month (weather permitting). This event is held to bring the citizens of Pine Bluff an evening of talented musicians sharing their music. The event was started in 2011 by a group of small business owners in the downtown area, as well as interested volunteers, with the idea to bring Pine Bluff residents back to the downtown area. There will be an added Music on Main event on Aug. 30.
