2nd Fourth Friday concert to feature Sumter-based Elijah Bradford

Posted

Tomorrow is the fourth Friday of the month, which, during the summer in Sumter, means downtown will be rocking.

Elijah Bradford and the Valentinos will put on a live show on North Main Street from 6:30 to 9 p.m. for the second rendition of this year's Fourth Friday Concert Series. Admission is free, and there will be beer, wine and food for sale in addition to downtown restaurants remaining open.

The Sumter Optimist Club sells snow cones and gives free books to kids during the event, and the Sumter Sertoma Club sells beer and wine while Ronnie Jefferson has a food truck with fried fish, sausage dogs and French fries. Todd Touchberry of Sumter Cut Rate will also be selling food.

After kicking off last month with Too Much Sylvia, next up is Elijah Bradford and his Sumter-based group, known for its gospel rock sound and Temptations-style choreography. They performed twice in March at The Apollo Theater in New York for "Showtime at the Apollo," finishing in the top three.

Fourth Friday concerts this year feature a Kids Korner with free face painting, cornhole and sidewalk chalk.

Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs. Coolers are not allowed.
