9/5/2018 - First Friday Night Live set for September 7

Salina Arts & Humanities, in collaboration with downtown stakeholders, presents Friday Night Live---an arts and entertainment series for Salina residents and visitors designed to strengthen partnerships with local business owners in the downtown arts district.

Programming kicks off at 4 p.m. with First Friday events, including visual-arts receptions for Laurie Moravec at the Salina Public Library, Kami Olson at Prairieland Market, Kristi Nineke, Raymond Peterman, Rick Brown and the Rolling Hills Zoo at The Flower Nook, and Brooke Wallace at Connected - Fair Trade. Room 347 is playing music at Ad Astra Books & Coffee House at 7 p.m. and the Salina Community Theatre offers a ticketed production of The Music Man beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The First Friday Night Live sponsored event is Herringbone, performing at 7 p.m. in Campbell Plaza, 126 S. Santa Fe, next to Coop's Pizzeria. Lawn chairs are encouraged and coolers allowed, but NO glass bottles. This event is kid-friendly and admission free, supported by Friday Night Live.

Led by Taylor Kline and based in the Salina area, Herringbone was established in 2017. The band's influences range from "old country" such as Merle Haggard, to "jam rock" like the Grateful Dead, all the way to today's best contemporary music like John Mayer. With a growing catalog of original music, including the 2017 debut album "Man That's Never Alone," and a passion for all guitar-based music, Herringbone is bound to strike a rhythm that hits home.

Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about the rest of Friday Night Live and First Friday programming for the season. For more information, call Anna V. Pauscher at Salina Arts & Humanities at (785) 309-5770.
