Here it is! Our 2016 First Friday line up. Downtown Dublin comes alive this year with a great mix of talented musicians. Presented by Pitts Toyota, this year's bands showcase the very best in blues, rock and roll, funk, and party music. All First Friday concerts begin at 7:30 p.m. at Market on Madison where lawn chairs and coolers are welcome. Even better, load up your family and friends and come tailgate with us. We'll mix it up throughout the season with some fun for the kiddos and festive food, so be sure to follow @downtowndublin on FB, Insta, and Twitter for all the details.
May 6th: Robert Lee Coleman & The Night Owls
A Macon music legend, Robert Lee Coleman shared the stage with the "Godfather of Soul," James Brown, from 1970 to 1973 and continues to entertain crowds with his own mix of southern Georgia blues and funk.
June 3rd: MASTERPIECE
This nine-piece party band delivers major entertainment with front line choreography, hot, soulful horns, and a rhythm section that grooves. MASTERPIECE will have you dancing on the lawn with the very best of R&B, Pop, Motown, Classic Rock, Golden Oldies, Country, and Big Band Era Shag.
August 5th: Main Street
Hailing from Savannah, GA, Main Street is a high energy dance and party band that aim to please. These four talented musicians entertain crowds of all ages, covering favorites from the 1960's to the 90's.
September 2nd: The Dirty Doves
The Dirty Doves are a blues-infused psychedelic rock band that transports you back to that 1970’s vibe - when rock and roll embraced the roots from which it sprang. Born out of the muddy waters of central Georgia, the Dirty Doves are a musical mixture of young, but seasoned players that blend original tunes with a few covers of some of their musical influences thrown in for good measure.
October 7th: Days After
Days After kicked off the very first First Friday in Downtown Dublin five years ago, so it's only fitting that we close out the season with our "house band." They're giving us a re-do because of the crazy weather we had in April, and because everyone deserves to see these guys play the Market stage. With a stylish mix of homegrown rock and roll, this group of music super talents will have you swaying and singing along to favorites from the 70's to the 90's.
