Hank meets Metallica on Friday
Looking for an enjoyable evening of music and fun in the beautiful North Carolina mountains? Join us Friday, Aug.16 as Holman Autry performs for the Friday night concert series on the square in Hayesville, presented by Clay County Communities Revitalization Association.
There will be food, beer and wine for purchase from Hayesville Brewing Company starting at 6 p.m. The American Legion Auxiliary will also sell hot dogs, popcorn and other refreshments. Remember that you are not allowed to bring alcohol on to the square as required by state law. Music begins at 7 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m. There is no charge for entrance to the concert; however, we do pass the red bucket for donations to help pay for the concert series.
Members of the Holman Autry Band grew up in the same county in Georgia, all graduated from the same high school and yet none of them ever imagined that they would start a band together.
It all began as each member began finding their individual love for music and as a couple of the guys started to jam together.
These self-taught musicians then turned jamming into practicing in hopes that concert bookings would follow. In 2006, after relentless hours of practicing, they began to receive bookings to perform live.
This band plays both original and cover songs representing a diverse selection of genres everything from rock to country rock. People have said, “Holman Autry Band is a little bit of Hank, a little bit Metallica and a healthy dose of southern rock and country,” all rolled into one dynamic performance. If you like Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band and Gov’t Mule, then you are sure to love the Holman Autry Band. Check out their new full-length CD, “Roots” that was released last month.
In addition to the red buckets, concerts are sponsored by private individuals, area businesses and organizations.
As you visit these local businesses, please thank them for their support in making this event possible. The Historic Hayesville Inc. Shuttle service will be avail- able to concert goers from designated parking areas, beginning at 6:15 p.m. and for return trips after the concert.
Look for the red shuttle signs, then catch a free ride to the square compliments of HHI.
If the weather should turn bad, the concert will move indoors to the Historic Clay County Courthouse at The Beal Center.
Should this happen, we ask that you leave your lawn chairs in the car and come up to the courtroom and enjoy the show. Pets are not permitted inside.
