Hometown CelebrationThe 4th annual Hometown Celebration, slated for Saturday, April 22nd has made a few big changes to the event. After many requests, the event has been moved from fall to spring to avoid the blistering heat and take advantage of Georgia’s beautiful spring weather. The event is also being held on Saturday, instead of Friday evening, allowing more time to enjoy the block party. The party will begin at 2 pm and last until 10 pm.

Live entertainment will be provided during the entire event. Taking the stage at 2pm will be the Scott Little Band. The Scott Little band takes you on a ride through small town American life, leaving you feeling like you were wrapped in a musical blanket. Crafting songs into stories that take the listener through all life’s traps and freedoms. This storytelling four-piece band has more than succeeded in their goal of making real music. Pulling from influences such as Haggard and Parsons, they make music the old-fashioned way, they live it...then they play it.

Taking the stage at 4pm will be The Majestics. The Majestics are also Milledgeville natives and will keep the crowd entertained with classic rock from the 60s, 70s, 80s and some Country. This four-piece band is local to Milledgeville and have played all over town. 

Headlining the Hometown Celebration will be Blind Driver. The group of skilled classic rock artists play 70s and 80s music. Think of the guitar driven rock bands of the 70's and even the hair bands of the early 80's and it’s easy to see where they get their inspiration. From Bad Company and Bachman Turner Overdrive, the harmonies of the Eagles and the Doobie's, the folksy and funky blues of Creedence Clearwater and Delbert McClinton and harder rock of AC/DC and Van Halen, they pick songs that they love, from memories of high school years until today's rock infused hits. Blind Driver will take the stage at 7pm and will close out the night at 10pm.
