“Rock the Square,” an outdoor concert and street dance, will be held Friday, Oct. 2, at 7 p.m., on Franklin’s Town Square Gazebo, weather permitting. The award-winning CSquare performs vintage hits recorded by Motown music legends Ray Charles, The Temptations, Stevie Wonder and others, along with golden oldies dating from Elvis and The Everly Brothers to Billy Joel and The Doobie Brothers, plus a little classic country. Band members are keyboardist Lionel Caynon, vocalist Bobbie Contino, and vocalist/ percussionist Mike Contino.
The gazebo is on the corner of Main and Iotla Streets, across from the Macon County Courthouse. Attendees should bring a lawn chair. This event is sponsored by the Arts Council of Macon County, with support from the Grassroots Arts Program of the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
