Bud Light, in partnership with the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival, presents its free summer concert series featuring On the Border: The Ultimate Eagles Tribute Band, Friday, July 14, at 7 p.m. in Festival Park.
“This concert is expected to be our largest Fayetteville After 5 event,” said Sarah Suggs, marketing and events coordinator for the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival. “We have had On the Border before; they are an Eagles Tribute Band and a Fayetteville favorite.” Suggs said the opening performance would be Quilted Sky. Quilted Sky is a cover band and is local to the area.
On the Border is from Charlotte, North Carolina. They perform shows all over the United States at major festivals, music venues, casinos, theaters and other events. The band was crowned “The Greatest Eagles Tribute Band in the World” by AXSTV and Katie Daryl. The group consists of Tracy Maples, Tim Giovanniello, Bill Morgan, Andy Young, Scott Sobota and Bob Orazi.
The concert is a fundraiser for the Fayetteville Dogwood Festival organization. “We put on events throughout the year, and the purpose is to raise money for the next event so we can continue to put on these free concerts for the community,” Suggs said. “Fayetteville After 5 events were started three or four years ago and would take place on the fourth Friday. Now the events are scheduled for the second Friday of summer months.”
There is more than great music at Fayetteville After 5, though. The event will feature food trucks from My Daddy’s Barbeque, Brain Freeze Ice Cream, Hibachi Express, King Queen #1 Haitian Cuisine, Kona-Ice, My Boricua Kitchen, Queso Monster, Tropical Island Concessions, Flavapaloza, Ragging Rooster, Bowls on a Roll, Tony’s Concession and Babann’s Southern Fried Chicken. A concession stand will be on-site and beer will be sold. “We encourage people to get there early because we are expecting a large crowd,” Suggs said. “We look forward to great music, food and fun.”
Admission is free. Gates open at 5 p.m. No outside food or beverages are allowed within the park. The public is encouraged to bring blankets and chairs. For more information, call (910) 323-1934.
