Garner, NC– The Garner Revitalization Association (GRA) is pleased to announce the lineup and schedule for the sixth season of the Music off Main Downtown Concert Series. This season will feature a diverse mix of artists who all have roots in Garner and the Triangle area. Performances will include country and rock from Amanda Daughtry, rockabilly and reggae from MikeMickXer, Motown and r&b from The Band Heartbeat, dance and top 40 from Honey and Southern roots music and bluegrass from Old Habits.

The season begins on May 9 with Amanda Daughtry who grew up in the Garner area and now calls Nashville her home. Amanda performs a vast array of current and classic country music, classic rock, and mainstream pop alongside songs of her own to make up a show ensuring everyone has a great time. Amanda’s success has been validated with recent opportunities to open for top country acts like Chris Young and Justin Moore. For more information, visit

In addition to local performers, GRA will feature local artists, products and businesses in a new initiative, Market off Main, during each concert. Market off Main grew from last summer’s successful Art off Main project and the popular pop-up shop Main Street Market held during the town’s holiday events. Market off Main provides local businesses and artists who don’t have a retail presence an opportunity to show and sell their products in their own community. Bring your wallets and support the local economy by shopping during the show!

The concert series returns this season to the Back Lawn of the Garner Performing Arts Center. Parking is available at the Performing Arts Center main entrance at 742 West Garner Road and throughout the Avery Street campus located at 125 Avery Street.

Bring your chairs or blankets but no coolers, please. Family friendly food and beverage vendors will be on site. Come out and enjoy dinner and live music on the lawn. Concerts are from 6:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. and admission is free.

The Music off Main Downtown Concert Series is presented by The Garner Revitalization Association, Garner Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources and a number of generous local businesses. For more information, visit or contact the Garner Revitalization Association at 919-773-4402 or
