CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — Everyone “working for the weekend” in the Kanawha Valley can look forward to another free night of music down by the river, featuring a Charleston-based band that takes pride in its nontraditional style.
Qiet – a group known for its unclassified sound that blends rock, jazz, gypsy, funk and more - is the headliner for Moses Auto Group Live on the Levee concert on Friday, June 22.
The summer free concert series takes place on the Schoenbaum Stage at Haddad Riverfront Park in Charleston.
Opening act Short and Company, a blues and Southern Rock band, will get the music started about 6:30 p.m. Qiet takes the stage about 7:45 p.m.
Live on the Levee is a free concert series that offers entertainment on 15 Fridays from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. This year’s lineup features 20 first-time performers, 10 national touring acts and seven returning favorites.
Eyewitness News is the exclusive media sponsor of Live on the Levee.
The concert series serves as a fundraiser for five local charities - Covenant House of West Virginia, Manna Meal, the Religious Coalition for Community Renewal, Roark-Sullivan Lifeway Center and the YWCA of Charleston.
Every Friday night, representatives from one of these organizations sell tickets for a 50/50 raffle. Proceeds from the raffle are collected throughout the season and divided among the five charities at the end of the year.
