Charlottesville’s “Fridays After Five” Free Concerts

Charlottesville’s nTelos Pavilion, at the east end of the Downtown Walking Mall, is the place to hear live music from April through September.  The City recently began its 2013 “Fridays After Five” concerts.  Here’s the schedule through May:

April 19 : NO BS Brass Band with Grits & Gravy (Modern Funk  Brass Band)

April 26 : Cha Cha’s Cadillac with Erin Lunsford & The Smokey Bandits (Rockabilly Country)

May 3 : Groove Train with Bluestep (Return of Disco!)

May 10 : William Walter & Company with Special Guest DJ Williams with Tara Mill & Yankee Dixie (High Energy Rock and Twang)

May 17 : Abbey Road with The Currys (Beatles, Beatles & Beatles)

May 24 : Beleza with Morro Azul Samba School (Funkalicious Samba Soul)

May 31 : Turnpike Troubadors with Carl Anderson (Rowdy Heartland Americana)

For out-of-town guests:  these are local groups, some just playing for fun, and some hoping to make the big time like the Dave Matthews Band.  Enjoy their music — maybe one day you’ll see one of them on a national tour, or receiving a Grammy or Country Music award!
