Laurinburg After Five returns in May

Staff report

LAURINBURG — This May will see the return of Smithfield Foods Laurinburg After Five.

This year’s line up will include performances by Carolina Beach/Shag bands: Jim Quick & Coastline, Hip Pocket, The Entertainers and The TAMS.

The first performance is scheduled for May 20 and will feature Jim Quick & Coastline.

“I want my music to be a bridge for many genres; a place where traditional and contemporary music can unite. But, I do love the pure emotion and simple-yet-deep concepts of country music,” Quick said. “I’m a Southern boy and it all hits home; the lyrics and roots of the music—from the melodies to chord progressions—seem to strike an ancestral nerve with me.”

Laurinburg After Five will continue with festivities on June 17 with Hip Pocket; July 15 with The Entertainers and will run until the finale with The TAMS on August 12.

Gates open at 5 p.m. Admission IS$2 (children under 12 are free) and organizers say coolers and pets are prohibited.

The event will be held at the James L. Morgan Recreation Complex. Vendors and concessions will offer food and drinks.
