New Year's Eve Midnight on Main Greeneville TNDecember 28, 2015
Ring in 2016 in Historic Downtown Greeneville.
Bring Your New Year’s Resolutions To Greeneville’s Midnight On Main
Fun crowd interaction has been added to plans for Greeneville’s New Year’s Eve celebration, Midnight on Main.
In addition to enjoying live music, street dancing, and fireworks, downtown partygoers can sing Karaoke, snap a photo in the selfie booth, and share their New Year’s resolutions.
Midnight on Main kicks off at 7 p.m. with the Whiskey Sticks in the Lobby of the General Morgan Inn. On Main Street at 7 p.m., DJ Lance Waddell, also known as “The Karaoke Man,” will lead a family friendly dance party.
“We’re hoping a large crowd joins us to ring in the New Year, and if they get here early they can pick up a free party hat or noise maker,” said event organizer Amy Rose, Town of Greeneville Public Relations Manager.
In its second year, Midnight on Main will once again include a variety of live music at three venues – General Morgan Inn, Capitol Theatre, and Catalyst Coffee Co.
MUSIC & DANCING
The lineup on the Capitol stage includes High Culture at 9 p.m., Sunflowers & Sin at 10 p.m., and Shiloh at 11 p.m.
Mostly local youngsters High Culture are described as a group of very tired but very ambitious individuals who choose to use their talents for good instead of evil.
From rock, to folk, to “spooky doo-wop,” band members Kayleb Lowery, Hannah Stewart, Kaelynn Stewart and Dylan Kittrell share their own interpretations of songs they love that span a multitude of genres.
Sunflowers & Sin is the collaboration of three childhood friends, Kaitlin Casteel, Lorra Amos and Makenna Perry, who bring the music of the mountains to the islands of the low country with songs inspired by a wide range of Americana influences.
Many may remember Sunflowers & Sin from the Dogwood Park Summer Concert Series and other local performances. They promise to leave you with a little extra pep in your stumbling step.
Shiloh is a classic rock band with a blues twist that originated in the early ‘70s at Tusculum College, performed throughout the Southeast, reunited in 2012, and continues to rock.
Admission to the Capitol Theatre is $5. Doors open at 8 p.m. For more information, visit www.thecapitoltheatreofgreeneville.com.
The musical lineup at the Catalyst Coffee Co. has been expanded to start at 7 p.m.
Local musicians John Price, Josh Miller, and Zach Wampler will perform before Kris Karlson, of the Whiskey Sticks, will take the stage from 10:15 to midnight.
Beginning at 10 p.m., DJ Robbie Britton will entertain the 21 and older crowd with an ‘80s-themed party for a $10 cover charge on the General Morgan Inn Terrace.
Free admission to the street dance also includes viewing of a giant screen with video feed from various locations.
The music and dancing will stop just in time for the big fireworks show on Main Street.
MAKE YOUR RESOLUTIONS
Fireworks will be launched after a countdown to midnight, featuring a special presentation by the Greeneville Light & Power System.
The crowd will have the opportunity to write their new year’s resolutions and watch them be lowered during the countdown.
Food and drinks will be available at several locations, including Catalyst and the Capitol, the Top Dog Hot Dog Stand, and Brumley’s Restaurant in the General Morgan Inn, which opens at 5 p.m.
Alcoholic beverages will not be allowed on the street.
