Looking for something fun and free to do Friday night? Then come down to Bill Woods Park for the Williamsburg Main Street program’s second block party of the summer.
Lexington-based band “Off the Clock” will be making their second appearance ever at the Williamsburg summer block parties, and are scheduled to perform from 8 – 11 p.m.
“They really are good. They play the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s style that everybody likes,” noted Williamsburg Main Street Manager Nannie Hays.
“Off the Clock” also performed in Williamsburg on April 23 as part of the grand finale for the city’s 200th anniversary celebration.
The block parties are free and open to the public, but are bring your own lawn chair events.
“Come on out. Enjoy it. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy some good music,” Hays added. “It is good socializing time.”
“Familiar Faces” band will play on July 6. The Nashville-based band with a Motown sound lives up to its name having played at Williamsburg block parties for the last 12 years.
On July 20, the Louisville-based “Usual Suspects Band” will be making their Williamsburg debut.
The nine-piece group features five rhythm players, a four-piece horn section and a vocalist. They cover a wide range of music from the 1970s, rock, R&B, Motown, jazz and swing, Hays said.
“I am looking forward to having this group,” Hays noted.
In the event of rain, the block parties will be moved to the Williamsburg Tourism and Convention Center.
