The Color 7 and Loose Change Bring the House Down
The weather may have taken the event inside to the beautiful Capitol Theatre for the final concert of the 2016 season but it certainly did not dampen the talent of the bands nor the spirit of the crowd. A little more than 300 people throughout the evening listened to the opening act, local band, The Color 7 and headliner Loose Change who closed out the session with Rocky Top bringing the crowd to their feet. Our thanks go to Sound Studio Live, Road Show Mobile Stages, John Brown and the Capitol Theatre for pitching in to get us moved and set-up for a great evening of music. Thanks too to our food vendors Top Dog Hot Dogs and Creamy Cup for going with the flow. We appreciate everyone for their support.

The sun was out as were the people then the rain came and everyone scattered. They only went to their cars to wait it out. Once the sky cleared he concert went on with a small delay. Our thanks to Living Testament for their wonderful music and to Michael Jacobs who drove in from Murfreesboro to share his original songs with us.

The third season for Main Street Greeneville's summer concert series Lyrics on the Lawn started on Thursday July 7 in historic downtown Greeneville. With a break in the weather the outdoor concerts were able to go on as scheduled. Steve Brown opened this year's series to the delight of his hometown fans. My New Favorites from Johnson City, TN were a hit with the crowd of approximately 250 — 300. The rains came and cut their set way short. The fans hung in there but lightening ruled. Kudos to the band they tried to make the most of it by singing an on the spot original to the volunteers under the tents close to the stage and teasing the audience with "It Ain't Gonna Rain No More". If only that had been true.
Join us each Thursday evening in July on the lawn of the Dickson-Williams Mansion in the heart of historic downtown Greeneville, TN. Music starts at 7:00 pm.

Main Street Greeneville’s Second Concert Set for Thursday July 14th
Lyrics on the Lawn 2016 Summer Concert Series continues Thursday, July 14 at 7:00 pm. The FREE concert will be held on the lawn of the Dickson-Williams Mansion in the heart of downtown Greeneville, Tennessee. The concerts take place each Thursday evening in July. The opening act will begin at 7 with intermission scheduled for 7:45 and the headliner takes the stage at 8. In the event of inclement weather the concerts will be held inside at The Capitol Theatre of Greeneville located on South Main Street.
Since 2009, Living Testament has provided music for churches, city festivals, benefit concerts, and school/FCA events across East Tennessee, mainly in Greene County. The band plays a variety of musical styles, infusing worship music with a classic rock influence. They also appreciate the great hymns of the church and often perform some during their live sets or on their recordings.
Songs that speak truth — Some songs, like Collective Soul’s “Shine,” or Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Simple Man,” may not be traditional worship songs or hymns, but they do communicate truth, and have been known to show up in the setlist from time to time.
Band members include: Mike Smyth — Lead / Background Vocals, Bass, and Mandolin;
Chance Lamb — Background Vocals, Guitar; Jared Ramsey — Drums, Percussion; Alex Smyth — Lead / Background Vocals, Keyboards, Banjo, and Ukelele along with Mark Rothe – Guitar
Award-winning recording artist Michael Jacobs creates a compelling musical mixture of roots rock, pop, and folk. His songs will entertain, inspire and challenge you. His passion and insights into the "human condition" are obvious. And while the songs are fruits of a well-traveled soul, they do not reflect a jaded one.
Besides receiving numerous awards and nominations, Michael's music has been used in many documentaries and other video presentations. To date, Michael’s performed at over 250 colleges and universities in 45 states, besides numerous libraries, museums, pow-wows, festivals, fairs, house concerts and other gatherings across the U.S. and Canada. A member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, Michael’s an accomplished musician, and writing great songs remains his sole desire and fuels his ambition.

Main Street: Greeneville presents Lyrics on the Lawn Outdoor Concerts at the Dickson-Williams Mansion in the heart of historic downtown each Thursday evening in July beginning at 7:00 pm. No small undertaking this week with the threat of bad weather as organizers watched the weather pattern hour by hour.
