FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
August 15, 2008
Downtown After Five - August Event
Forecast: SUNNY AND COOL WITH HOT TUNES!
The weather is looking to be absolutely perfect today for a delightful afternoon downtown with some free live music!
What could be better than a balmy summer's eve with some sizzling hot music playing in the back ground while you talking with your old friends and meeting new ones over a delicious icy cold beverage? We certainly can't think of a single thing that sounds better on a summer's night!
The back to school rush is almost over so come on down and treat yourself to a relaxing evening of mighty fine mingling with old and new friends alike!
One World will be joining us tonight and bringing some of the best vegetarian fare you've ever had! We'll have everything from BBQ to Lobster Rolls and Hot Dogs to Gyros and Homemade Gourmet Ice Cream and now some new mighty darn tasty vegetarian fare along with our extensive selection of icy cold beers and fine wines to sodas and our new certified Carbon Neutral produced water! Whew! We've got something for everyone and every taste!
The event starts at 5:00, just enough time to get your wristband (to help support Homeward Bound) and get situated before the music starts around 5:30 with Peggy Ratusz, Asheville's premier Blue's Chanteuse and her band Daddy LongLegs.
We'll shift gears into some beautiful and blistering tunes from " how did we get so lucky to have this kind of talent locally" musicians with the Shannon Whitworth and Jeff Sipe Band around 7:30. There are sure to be many magical musical moments tonight, Shannon was the lead singer of the Biscuit Burners and Jeff has toured with bands such as Susan Tedeschi, Keller Williams, Leftover Salmon, Aquarium Rescue Unit and Trey Anastasio.
Please remember to help support the Manna FoodBank this evening if you can by bringing a few canned food items for their food drive.
Downtown After Five is located just down the hill from the Civic Center on Lexington Avenue by the I-240 overpass, so c'mon down and celebrate yet another beautiful evening with us tonight in downtown Asheville!
