Scoot Pittman Band is “Grand Finale”

Published 10:48 pm Tuesday, September 23, 2014


After a successful second season of Top of the Grade concerts at McCreery Park in Saluda, Scoot Pittman will wrap up the season with his vigor and verve on Friday, Sept. 26, 2014, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. Pittman’s performance will be held on the Ella Grace Mintz Stage at McCreery Park and moved to the Pavilion in the park if rain is threatening at setup time.

It takes a professional to seamlessly blend booty shakin’ rhythm with lasting, meaningful lyrics, but that is exactly what Scoot Pittman is and it is exactly what he has done. Like mama’s Southern cookin’ sticks to your gut, Pittman’s music will satisfy that sweet spot in your brain and keep a smile on your face. Frequent performer at the Purple Onion, Pittman is a local favorite to celebrate New Year’s Eve with at the Onion and just the right energy and talent for the last outdoor Top of the Grade concert in Saluda. His music has been known to get his audiences dancing on tables.

Organizers wish to express appreciation to the people who attended and supported the first two years of this event, and to the many volunteers who helped by donating money, time and energy.

Top of the Grade concerts are coordinated by the City of Saluda’s Saluda Downtown Foundation (formerly Small Town Main Street) program and funding for the Friday night concerts has been through a community grant from Polk County Community Foundation. All concerts are free to the public thanks to a Free Community Events grant.

Concertgoers should bring their own chairs or blankets. Food, soft drinks, beer and wine and coolers are allowed. No food will be available to purchase at the park, but all of Saluda’s delicious restaurants will be open serving everything from hamburgers and pizzas to gourmet meals. Events are rain or shine and rain events may move to the Pavilion.
