Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation Concerts in The Village is BACK!
After a rain delay last week, the Annual Concert Series kicks off this Thursday, May 8th with the popular “Molly Ringwalds”. The World’s Greatest 80’s Experience. Hailing from Sheffield, England, this legendary quintet has been able to combine their individual and very formidable talents to create the true essence of the most radical decade to ever be called “The 80’s.” The Molly Ringwalds create an 80’s Experience by honing their abilities to apply make-up and tease their hair while showcasing all the musical genres of the decade. From their days of building a following at a pub located in a large portion of a big city near a small village located south of a place you’ve never heard of, to selling out large venues in the United States, The Molly Ringwalds are an indescribable act. Luck and circumstance brought these young lads together. The rest is the history of the 80’s.
The Mattie Kelly Arts Foundation’s Concerts in the Village is a 9-week series and Voted one of the “top ten things to do in Northwest Florida” by Florida Travel & Tourism Guide, featuring a different concert every Thursday in a variety of genres, including Motown, R&B, jazz, blues, classic and modern rock, country, reggae and golden oldies.
