Meridian, Miss. Downtown Meridian came alive tonight with the fall premiere of live music in Dumont Plaza.
The Al Brown All-Star Band took the stage to kick off the season of "After 5 Alive." The live concerts are presented five Thursday evenings in a row in October and are free to the public.
Volunteer Will Hayes says it's a great event that appeals to all types of people, and highlights the regional music scene. "It's a family event, we're going to have children's activities, said Hayes. "We're going to have beverages. Coca-cola is a sponsor, and Bud Light is a sponsor as well. Live music, free admission, drinks and just family fun! So come on down, it's from 5:00 to 7:30 each Thursday night in October."
Next Thursday evening, the band "Stagolee" will be featured.
