A couple of fun musical events will be happening today, Friday, July 28, 2017 – one in Southport, NC and the other in Bald Head Island, NC. The popular, local Mike’s Garage Band will be playing at the Rescues United Furr Jam from 5:30 PM until 9:30 PM at the Woodlands Park Amphitheater in St. James for a good cause. There is a cash fee of $10 for this event and money raised will benefit Southport-Oak Island Animal Rescue, Paws Place Dog Rescue, and the Brunswick County Sheriffs Animal Protective Service medical fund. You can still purchase the required $10 wristbands at Paws Place and SOAR during business hours. You are invited to bring your own picnic and beverages or to purchase food from vendors who will be available at the concert.
The Bald Head Island Friends of Music concert for July will be presented this evening at the Village Chapel. This free concert, which features the Watermark Ensemble, will begin at 7:30 PM and is open to the public.
