Clinton, S.C. – Main Street Clinton is bringing beach music back to The Depot, as the city’s traditional Thursday Night Town Rhythms returns this week, June 23, from 7 to 9 p.m.
The classic beach music sounds will be performed by The Barker Duke Band, which is a subset of the popular and large North Carolina-based Catalinas.
“I know it’s been awhile but we are going back to Town Rhythms at The Depot,” said Main Street Clinton Manager Joe Timmons. “I know the weather can be unpredictable, but the band will be performing under The Depot, rain or shine. We hope that people will go to our Clinton restaurants and buy some supper and bring their lawn chairs to enjoy their food and the music.”
There’s also the grassy area in front of The Depot which is a common dance space.
Timmons said this is the first of three summer concerts planned for Clinton.
The Barker Duke Band is a group of four or five of The Catalinas, which has received awards for their beach music performances.
“They’ve gotten a lot of awards and this is a nice beach music band,” Timmons said.
Town Rhythms in July will feature Phazar, a band which plays rhythm and blues music from the 1970s through the ’90s. The concert will be from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, July 28.
“The August Town Rhythms will coincide with the Welcome Back to PC party, so it will be from 5 to 9 p.m. and the music will be karaoke style,” Timmons said.
Timmons said other options for residents and visitors are opening up in Clinton.
The Axe Craft Depot is already open in the old Industrial Supply Building, and by late July the Cigar Bar will be open as well.
