First Friday brings the ‘Sounds of Spring’ to Milledgeville


The April installment of First Friday is all about live entertainment and fun as locals prep to celebrate the sights and sounds of spring. 

Events kick off at 6 p.m. and last until 9 p.m. Starting off the night will be Hott with Hairy Leggs playing from 6 to 7 p.m. outside Capital City. Beginning at 7:30 p.m. the band Rapanui will finish up the evening.

Joining in the musical theme of the night will be the Sounds of the South music tour. The Sounds of the South lineup includes Bloodkin, The Electric Sons, Downside UP, Shook Foil, Dana Swimmer, Saint Francis, Baby Baby, All the Locals, Gold-Bears, and Dank Sinatra. 

“This is the second year the Sounds of the South concert has joined with First Friday, and we think it only adds to the enjoyment of the night,” said Milledgeville Main Street Director Carlee Schulte.  

The event will begin at 10 p.m. after the completion of First Friday activities. All proceeds will go to benefit the Children’s Miracle Network and downtown Milledgeville. The Sounds of the South bands will perform in various downtown bars and restaurants. Wristbands can be purchased for $7 the night of the event to enjoy drink specials for the whole night. 

Other events for First Friday include a community art project unveiling at Digital Bridges, the ORMC Kid’s Corner, and an Outdoor Recreation Expo sponsored by Z97.7.  

Stories Through Art, a community project sponsored by Digital Bridges, will showcase work created during creative workshops held every Saturday thrughout February. The community arts workshops included poetry writing, storytelling, collage making and mural creation. All participants worked together, with the help of artists, to create collaborative works that tell a story of the community of Milledgeville. 

The ORMC Kids Corner will give local youth a chance to create music shakers to help them become part of the live entertainment happening around downtown. Z97.7 will kick off its Outdoor Recreation Expo earlier in the day. There will be a number of boats and recreational vehicles for viewing. On Saturday, the Old Capital Car Club will host a ‘Show and Shine’ in conjunction with the boat show. The event will be held downtown on South Jefferson Street and in the Mary Vinson Library parking lot. 

“We look forward to sharing with everyone the sounds of spring through so much wonderful talent and music,” said Schulte.
