Free music ends with a flourish this weekend at Moses Auto Group Live on the Levee with fireworks, blues and a taste of Louisiana.

The final event of the season for Charleston’s 15-week summer concert series is Friday at Haddad Riverfront Park. Charleston-based blues band Diablo Blues, the opening act, takes the Schoenbaum Stage first at about 6:30 p.m.

Headliner C.J. Chenier and the Red Hot Louisiana Band heat things up as the headliner for the evening at about 7:30 p.m. The band is known for its zydeco, a style of Louisiana music that typically features accordion and guitar.

After the concerts, fireworks will wrap up Live on the Levee, an event that supports five local charities with a strong emphasis on homelessness. This year's nonprofit partners are Roark Sullivan Lifeway Center, YWCA's Sojourners shelter, Covenant House, Samaritan Inn and Manna Meal.

WCHS-TV is the exclusive media partner of Live on the Levee.
