CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WCHS/WVAH) — Everyone gets in a funk now and then. Two local bands performing at Live on the Levee this weekend can help put things back in the groove.
Beggars Clan, a funk and reggae band from Charleston, will be the headliner Friday, Aug. 10, at Moses Auto Group Live on the Levee.
The group, which is releasing its first album that features the single “Beautiful World,” will take the Schoenbaum Stage in Charleston about 7:45 p.m. to begin its set.
Opening act The Settlement, a funk-fusion jam band from Huntington, will get the music started about 6:30 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.
The following is the schedule for the remainder of the Live on the Levee concerts this season:
