Two guys, two guitars and two souls will play a unique blend of rock and country. With a sound as big as their hearts, they play it like they feel it, sing it like they mean it, and perform it like they wrote it. No apologies, no excuses. Lee Fowler and Michael D. invite the public to come out and have an “US n GUS” time.
All performances will be held on center stage from 6:30- 8:30 p.m. at McCreery Park in the area that was previously the skateboard park.
Bring chairs or blankets.  Food, soft drinks, and coolers are allowed. Events are held rain or shine, so attendees might need to bring an umbrella if rain is in the forecast. In some cases, rain events may move to the Pavilion. The events are free to the public and donations are always welcome and are tax deductible.
The Top of the Grade concerts are organized by the NC Small Town Main Street promotions team to carry out the vision of Saluda becoming a four season destination for both local residents and visitors.
The Saluda Business Association is a major sponsor of the event.
“The mission of the Saluda Business Association is to promote and preserve Saluda’s artistic culture, and we feel this is a community event that the SBA needed to provide some seed money to get the concerts off to a good start,” said a spokesperson for the SBA.
To help underwrite the concerts, organizers invite anyone who would like to sponsor an event to contact them.
