Soda Jerk for Floats
Kick off your Memorial Day Weekend with Monroe blues man Brian Sivils, All-American Coke Floats and the beauty of ELsong Garden at night Thursday, October 18 during the Biedenharn Museum and Gardens Moonlight in the Garden. Garden Gates open at 7:00; concert begins at 7:30.
Sivils, a popular performer at area nightspots and regional festivals, has roots in Gospel Music but opts for an earthier roadhouse Blues performance featuring humor and double entendre laden songs that have flowed from his own hand.
Sivils’ playlist is never set however concert attendees can expect a variety of Delta and Chicago Blues standards from artist like Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, Robert Johnson and many more. His original songs like “Dirty Lawman Blues,” "Designated Driver" and "Thick and Brown" which will certainly leave you laughing and toe tapping. Sivils will pay tribute to mentors with "Night Fishing" and "Voodoo Man.” Sivils covers these songs by friend and inspiration Bobby Rush, who encouraged Sivils to pursue a solo blues career.
Concert goers are encouraged to stroll ELsong Gardens under an evening sky while enjoying music and special treats, Museum Director Ralph Calhoun says, “Coke floats will be served. I expect some people will attend to stroll the garden, some will attend to enjoy the Brian’s music and some will attend for our famous Coke Floats. But I think folks will end up staying and enjoying all elements of this great evening.”
Admission to this special fall concert is $5; persons with Biedenharn Annual Passes are admitted free of charge.
