Race Week at The Brewery just got better. John McGlocklin, Entertainment Director, just announced a revamped music lineup. Starting things off on Thursday night is the Marcus Boyd Band playing from 8:30 – 11:30. Then on Friday Below 7 takes the main stage from 9:00 – 1:00. Finally, on Saturday, Race Night, H.B. Beverly takes the stage starting at 10:00 to allow race fans a chance to get there.
As an added courtesy to their customers and race fans, The Brewery will operate a shuttle between their parking lot and BMS on both Friday and Saturday. Friday, the shuttle will operate from 1:00 PM thru 11:00 PM. Hours on Saturday begin at 9:00 AM and continue until after the race.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to hear Marcus Boyd, you’re in for a treat. Based out of Music City, this Southwest Virginia native grew up playing country, bluegrass and gospel music and then became acquainted with rock, blues and classical styles. His professional influences include Tom Petty, Garth Brooks, Vince Gill, Leo Kottke and Counting Crows. His music is a blend of traditional country, bluegrass, modern country and rock. Should be quite the entertaining show!
Below 7 is a rock band out of Saltville, Virginia. A very energetic band with a wide following, they will provide a nice contrast to Marcus Boyd when they take the stage Friday night. Then local artist H.B. Beverly will close out the weekend with his Americana style of music that has built quite the local fan base. He takes the stage at 10:00.
A nice lineup of different styles, Race Weekend at The Brewery will be the place to be.
