2017 Leesburg Day

 

LEESBURG DAY

Saturday, September 9th

9am to 3pm

Antique Cars & Tractors, Free Inflatables for Kids, Register for Door Prizes!

Opening Ceremonies will begin at 9am with the Invocation, National Anthem, and Crowning of Miss Leesburg. Door Prizes will be given out throughout the day.

Entertainment

Local Artist and 2017 Voice Contestant Savannah Leighton will be kicking off our Leesburg Day Celebration by singing the National Anthem and then performing some of her favorites from 10-11am.

Following Savannah, we will have Matthew Scott with TCB Ministries performing Tribute to “Elvis” (11am-12pm).

Matthew began listening to Elvis Presley at a very young age. He loved Elvis music and began memorizing the songs singing them over and over. He performed in his high school years and performed in church as he began to sound more and more like Elvis. Matthew Scott is one of the most authentic and closet sounding voices to the legendary Elvis Presley. Matthew has performed with the Jordanaires and the Blackwoods in Pigeon Forge, TN. Matthew was chosen as one of the top 10 ETA’s to perform at the International Showcase in Montreal, Canada. Matthew’s show is very energetic, fun and soul stirring. Matthew performs in facilities, church, private and public events traveling through 9 states in the southeast.

After Elvis, South of Heaven will perform from 12-2 with Savannah Leighton joining in on a few.

A “Southern Rock Revival”. That’s precisely what this group of young guns are trying to accomplish. With a sound that transports an audience back to a time where music hit a crowd’s soul, South of Heaven sounds more like a slice of heaven.

Hailing from southern roots in the Georgia red clay, this group of youngsters are ready to take the country by storm. Pairing the smooth unique vocals of frontman TJ Lyle and shredding guitar licks of lead guitarist Riley Couzzourt was an easy decision. Once the kick drum hits and the crash cymbal clangs from Bristol Perry, there is no doubt a party is in store.

Slapping the bass line is Zach Everett, while Logan Tolbert keeps the rhythm going with his 6-string.

South of Heaven delivers a show that people from every generation can enjoy, and when it’s over they will leave the crowd wanting more every single time.
