5/23/2018 - Friday Night Live set for May 25

Salina Arts & Humanities, in collaboration with downtown stakeholders, presents Friday Night Live --- an arts and entertainment series designed to increase attendance and participation in arts-related events and to strengthen partnerships with local business owners in the downtown arts district.

Friday Night Live is excited to announce an FNL featured performance by Cheryl Rutz & Lewis Street Soul on May 25th at 7 p.m. in Campbell Plaza, 126 S. Santa Fe, next to Coop's Pizzeria. Rutz's music has been described as "blues with an attitude." This local group of highly talented players has performed multiple years at the Festival Jam, at the 2017 Smoky Hill Museum Street Fair and is a main-stage act at the 2018 Smoky Hill River Festival.

Cheryl Rutz & Lewis Street Soul play the rock 'n' roll, blues and American-roots hits of the good ol' days. With powerful lead female vocals and the expert backing of an organ, drums, bass and electric guitar, the band is sure to get the audience out of its seat. This is an all-ages event and is free admission. Lawn chairs are encouraged and coolers allowed, but NO glass bottles.

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