The Greenville Arts Council in partnership with Delta Children’s Museum and Delta Symphony Association will be holding the second annual Beats at Bass; an annual concert held on the lawn at the E.E. Bass Cultural Arts Center on Main Street. The concert will be on May 5, 2012 at 1 PM following the YMCA Cotton Classic 10K and 5K event in downtown Greenville. The featured band will be Jason Fratesi & the Dirt Road Jam Band.
Jason Fratesi & The Dirt Road Jam Band is a band out of the Leland, that plays a wide mix of country, southern rock and blues. The band specializes in stripped down acoustic sets accompanied by mandolin and spoons. The typical DRJB experience starts soft and ends hard as they rock out to numerous southern rock favorites like “Green River,” “Hard To Handle” and fun songs like “Voodoo Child” , and “Wagon Wheel” and “What’s Up.”
“One of the best things to do in the Delta is to be outside enjoying the company of people and great music. Beats at Bass is all about that! Come out bring you family and friends and enjoy some good music,” stated MacKenzie Stroh, Executive Director of the Greenville Arts Council.
The concert is free to the public and will take place on the front lawn of E.E. Bass. Feel free to bring lawn chairs and enjoy music and sunshine. In case of rain the event will be moved to the Jake and Freda Stein Hall.
