The Stones River Pilots, Charlie Davidson, Norris Hall, Rodney Wright, Melvin Cunningham, Debbie Ritter and Alan Daigre, are ready to rock at July’s Friday Night Live, held this Friday on the Square.
The second episode of Main Street Murfreesboro’s monthly concert series, Friday Night Live, is set for tomorrow night with a performance from the Stones River Pilots.
As part of the bicentennial celebration, this event is part of several music events planned for the month of July with the City of Murfreesboro.
With a return appearance on tap for Friday Night Live, the Pilots are planning a show that is friendly for all.
“We have developed a show that has something for everybody. Everybody that likes the “oldies” that is. Classic rock, blues, R&B, Americana... even a pinch of country,” Pilots drummer Norris Hall said about expectations for Friday night.
“We hope everyone will be able to find their socks after the show, because we plan to rock them off!”
If by chance you’ve paid attention to any of the community events around town, then you’ve probably seen the Pilots name on the bill. Recently, they’ve played Bunganut Pig, Coach’s along with Wilson Bank’s Summerfest.
They are also on schedule to perform at this year’s Taste of Stones River in August as well.
“It’s a true joy to play these community events. We look forward to every one of them with enthusiasm. We consider it an honor,” Hall said.
The group has progressed since their early days, which are only a few short years ago, not only musically but also in the way they read each other as a group.
They now have a lineup that consists of Rodney Wright, Melvin Cunningham, Alan Daigre, Charlie Davidson and Debbie Ritter, along with Hall.
“The biggest improvement has been our vocals. Along with our lead vocalist Rodney Wright, singer Debbie Ritter recently joined us. With keyboardist Alan Daigre and lead guitarist Charlie Davidson backing those two up, it has given our vocals a much richer sound,” Hall said about the band’s recent additions.
“That’s four out of six of us that sing, bassist Melvin Cunningham and myself keep the train running without lending our voices.”
The Pilots have much in store, even a small number of free T-shirts for the crowd.
If you plan on making it out tomorrow night, then bring a lawn chair and a good time as the show begins at 6:30 p.m. on the Square.
