Valdese, NC – Valdese Family Friday Nights Summer Concert series will feature Gal Friday Band this Friday, July 15, beginning at 7:00pm, located in the Town Parking area.

Gal Friday is a country trio of sisters. Lauren Wilson, Ashley Min and Melissa York provide the vocals for the band, singing in a three-part harmony. Min also plays the keyboard. They are joined by Dan Hood, electric guitar and mandolin, Andy Burger, acoustic guitar and banjo, Stacey Leazer, bass, and Ryan York, percussionist.

Wilson, Min and York were raised with a love of music, and have been performing live for over nine years. They perform a mixture of country and southern rock to enthusiastic crowds all over the country. Hailing from Matthews, North Carolina, the sisters write original songs that are derived partially from their own life experiences. They sing of love, hope and rebellion, and deliver their soulful songs with passion.

Gal Friday has opened for several popular country artists over the last several years. In 2015, they opened for Keith Urban, Martina McBride and Garly Allen, Wynonna Judd, Travis Tritt, and Kristian Bush from the band SugarLand. They have showcased their talent at country music festivals in North Carolina and Florida.

According to Lesa Browing from Music Mix Daily, “these ladies know how to rock and roll…cowgirl style!”

Concessions will be available and provided by the Valdese Merchant’s Association. Myra’s Cruise In will begin every Friday night at 6:00pm and downtown shops will remain open later.
