It may be Monday, but it’s not too early to start planning for the weekend, particularly when there will be free music down by the river.

Moses Auto Group Live on the Levee kicks off another free concert season Friday at Haddad Riverfront Park in Charleston

The opening act will be M.F.B., and the headliner is DeRobert and the Half-Truths. Music on the Schoenbaum Stage will begin with the opening act about 6:30 p.m. The headliner usually starts performing about 7:30 p.m.

Fireworks will wrap up the evening’s entertainment.

This marks the 14th season for Live on the Levee, which will feature 15 weeks of free Friday night concerts at Haddad Riverfront Park. WCHS-TV is the exclusive media partner of Live on the Levee.

A 50/50 raffle is conducted during each concert with half of the proceeds going to the winner and the other half to designated charities.
