Midday Melodies Oct. 13, 20 & 27 at Heritage Park; Exit 105 Band, This Side of 49 & Leonard Houston set to perform
Fall is in the air and Midday Melodies is in Heritage Park! This music-at-lunchtime event will be held on three consecutive Wednesdays, Oct. 13, 20 and 27, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
On Oct. 13, the Exit 105 Band from Pace, Florida, will perform a variety of tunes, ranging from pop to sock-hop, country, and western swing. Line dancers are welcome. On Oct. 20, This Side of 49 will be performing original sounds with some classic favorites. Lastly, on Oct. 27, Leonard Houston of Fairhope will be performing on the keyboard and saxophone.
Midday Melodies is a safe, socially distanced event that will take place entirely outdoors near the fountain in Foley’s Heritage Park. Picnic blankets or lawn chairs are welcomed. Pick up a lunch from one of Foley’s many restaurants or bring your own. Or, take advantage of the food truck. The Chew Chew Truck will be taking orders onsite for a variety of stuffed grilled cheeses. With plenty of space in Foley’s seven-acre Heritage Park, there is room to spread out and socially distance.
Bring a friend and your lunch and enjoy great music and the outdoors for Midday Melodies (weather permitting). Free parking is available around the perimeter of Heritage Park (104 N. McKenzie Street) and just across the pedestrian bridge on Hwy. 59. For more information, visit visitfoley.org or call the city of Foley at 251-943-1300.
Pictured: (Above) Jack and Jim Randolph started the Exit 105 Band in 1997 and moved the band to Northwest Florida in 2002. Jack has had the pleasure of working with members of the Grand Old Opry, and also made Billboard with the song “Shadows of a Honky Tonk” in 1975. The band takes pride in being able to deliver music, from the 40’s, and 50’s, classic country, classic rock and the latest hits. (Below) This Side of 49 is made up of Josh Aarron and Jarred Ashley from right here on the Alabama Coast. Their influences range from gospel to classic rock, and they blend those influences with experience, passion and a respect for music in every piece they create. Their latest album is expected to be released later this year.
