the crewThey have also been a favorite at local nightclubs, country clubs, weddings and private corporate events. Of course there have been a few name changes throughout the years. The group started out as Hansom Ranson, then shortened the name to Ranson, and now they are simply known as The Crew. In the past several years they have directed their musical interest to the legendary classics of the 60’s and 70’s. Today they continually expand their sets with salutes to more great artists, including classics of the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s. Their main focus when performing is to provide great music and a good fun atmosphere. Whether you are into toe-tapping, shoulder swaying, a blast from the past, or dancing like nobody’s watching, this band will deliver.

The Valdese Merchant’s Association will have concessions for sale during the concert series. Myra’s cruise in will begin every Friday night at 6:00pm and downtown shops will remain open later. For further information about events in Valdese and the full Family Friday Nights Concert Schedule go to
