Downtown Corning's only outdoor entertainment venue, Market Street Social, will officially launch its live music concert series for the season on Thursday, July 16th from 6 pm to 9 pm with fan favorite Doc Possum. Market Street Social LIVE, as it's called, presents an array of local musicians, from acoustic solo artists to full bands, outside on the patio on Thursday nights. In addition to some of the hottest local acts, Market Street Social LIVE also offers the historic Gaffer District locally-inspired cuisine and libations – with new State guidelines enforced to provide for guest distancing and comfort.
"We're excited to re-energize Market Street with live music," said Ken Knowles, Director of Food & Beverage at the Radisson Hotel Corning where Market Street Social is located. "Good food, drinks and tunes outside under the summer sun!"
On July 16th, Doc will be performing his catalog of "songs you will remember and ones you will never forget" – featuring music from the artists that have inspired him over the years along with a few favorite Possum tunes thrown in along the way. The registered BMI artist has been performing professionally for over 25 years in various formats including original music which has ranged from grunge rock to family friendly tunes. Most recently, Doc has found success performing songs from the artists that have inspired him including but not limited to Elvis, The Beatles, and Tom Petty.
