Valdese, NC – Valdese Family Friday Nights Summer Concert series will feature Jason Lee McKinney this Friday, June 23, beginning at 7:00pm located in the Town Parking area.

Jason Lee McKinney is a two time nationally signed recording artist, powerhouse vocalist, and songwriter. McKinney blends a snarling musical underbelly full of equal parts, soaring sing along hook melodies, with lyrics that are raw and raucous, reflective and radiant; simultaneously weaving a narrative that is both uniquely his and everyman’s story.

McKinney’s live shows are fast paced, dynamic events that leave audiences exhausted, yet longing for more. His smooth and charming stage presence aligns himself as one of the guys, without losing the distant aloof rock star vibe.

Concessions will be for sale during the concert series and different civic groups will offer 50/50 raffles every Friday. Season lineup cards will be available for pick up at the concession trailer and will feature special offers and discounts from participating merchants.

Checkers, Tic-Tack-Toe and other games will be available for public use.

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 Summer Concert Schedule go to or call 828-879-2129.
