The Family Stone performs R&B classics at the Villages, July 31

This Saturday, July 31st, The Villages Amphitheater will be “dancing to the music” with R&B/soul pioneers, The Family Stone. In the late 60’s, they came on the scene with a unique blend of rock and R&B that spoke to the youth of that generation.

The Family Stone features original founding members and Rock & Roll Hall of fame inductees, Jerry Martini and Cynthia Robinson. They were part of the first inter-racial, inter-gender horn section in Rock & Roll history, and will be performing all of the hits of Sly & The Family Stone this Saturday at the Villages. Their performance at the original Woodstock is legendary, and often regarded as the highlight of the entire event. With hit songs that include, “Everyday People”, “Family Affair”, “Dance to the Music”, and “I Want to Take You Higher”, attendees will be treated to what is essentially a big dance party.

Appropriately enough, July 31st is also National Dance Day in America. The Villages is certainly doing their part to contribute. Amphitheater Director, Brian Wismer adds, “This is definitely a ‘get up and dance’ show. We are looking forward to a high-energy performance of some great music from the 60’s,” said Wismer.

Some tickets still remain and are available at the Train Depot and also via the website, www.VillagesAmphitheater.com.

Also appearing at the Villages later this summer is Grand Funk Railroad on August 28. The 2010 concert series is presented by Mercedes-Benz of South Atlanta.

The Villages Amphitheater is owned by the Downtown Development Authority and managed by the Main Street Tourism Association of Fayetteville.
