“Ernie Smalls Blues Band” rates among the best performance groups ever brought to Friday After 5. The band has been entertaining the Bowling Green community with a blend of blues, rock and jazz for over 33 years. Randi Womack is the current singer and she brings an incredible voice and presence to the stage. One of the longest performing bands in the region, the Ernie Small Blues Band has played every local venue and for nearly every event that has included music. See you in tonight!” Thank you Kentucky Wesleyan College for tonight’s party! 6:30pm-10:00pm
Atmos Energy Courtyard
Lacy Jean & Ryan. Lacy Jean gets around. But after two decades of traveling North America, violin bow in hand, the Owensboro native seems settled in back home with weekend gigs on the fiddle and a daily presence at Owensboro Music Center. She doesn’t mind talking about her one-night stands, probably because they included back-up work on stage shows with Glen Campbell, Dionne Warwick and the Moody Blues. She’s also been a regular with the Owensboro and Bowling Green symphonies. Stop by and bring you date! 7:00pm-10:00pm
Don Moore’s Party at the Pier
Spiritual Rez – “The craziest Reggae dance party you’ll ever be a part of.” They are a high energy performance band that tonight’s Party Pier crowds will find contagious. It’s a soul-funk fusion that besides being incredibly infectious is dance inciting! The “Party Pier” is right on the Ohio River behind our new Convention Center. Just steps away, you’ll find Smothers Park! Friday After 5 is Where the Weekend Begins! 7:30pm-11:00pm
