KURE BEACH, NC (WWAY) – For the first time since the pandemic closed concert halls across the country, live outdoor concerts will return to Pleasure Island with a mini music festival on June 13 in the area Fort Fisher Recreation Center.
Organizers wanted to do something exciting to mark the lifting of most of the restrictions of the pandemic era, so they planned a family concert to kick off the summer music season.
“We have a number of live music events throughout the summer,” explained Steve Shuttleworth, one of the co-founders of the Pleasure Island Productions event coordinator. This Sunday’s performance features a New York-based band called “Donna the Buffalo”.
Shuttleworth says the band has been around for a long time and has an eclectic vibe. “Americana, bluegrass, a little bit of zydeco, just a fun, upbeat bunch,” he said. “They play great music and we are delighted to welcome them.”
The doors to the recreation center will open at 12:30 p.m. Justin Cody Fox will perform at 1:00 p.m., followed by Rebecca Todd at 2:30 p.m. and Donna the Buffalo at 4:30 p.m. Admission is $ 35 for adults. , $ 50 for children aged 12 to 16 and free for children under 12.
No coolers will be allowed, but food and drinks will be available for purchase on site.
