VALDESE — The town of Valdese will celebrate with a season finale of its summer concert series with The Tim Clark Band, which is a Valdese crowd favorite.
Since its inception, The Tim Clark Band has been wowing audiences wherever it appears. Not only did it quickly become the top-drawing band in its hometown of Myrtle Beach, S.C., but it also is recognized as one of the most popular and versatile bands touring the southeast.
Fronted by Tim Clark, the band is known for adding its own flavor to favorite hits of the 1970s, ’80s, ’90s and today. Clark has been entertaining audiences up and down the East Coast for nearly 20 years. As lead singer for the immensely popular Charlotte band Sugarcreek, Clark honed his unique brand of showmanship, displaying a natural gift for winning over an audience. He is both a talented singer and entertainer, and now he has assembled an good group of players who compliment his style and raise The Tim Clark Band to another level.
“We are excited to offer the community a season finale celebration,” said Morrissa Angi, community affairs director for the town of Valdese. “This year, we have had an entertainment-packed season full of crowd favorites. We appreciate the continued support of our community group volunteers, mayor, town council, sound company, and our local merchants who help us offer this great season to not only our local community but the surrounding area.
“This event continues to grow and grow, and I am excited to start planning next year’s season.”
The 2019 season finale will begin promptly at 7 p.m. and continue until 10 p.m. in the Wells Fargo/town parking lot. Attendees are invited to bring a chair and enjoy free music in a family-friendly atmosphere.

A 50/50 raffle also will be presented, and proceeds from concession sales will go toward Valdese Lakeside Park. A cruise-in at Myra’s Diner will begin at 6 p.m.
Concert attendees are encouraged to visit local restaurants in Downtown Valdese and check out the retail shops while they are visiting.
“The summer concerts have become a favorite for visitors and locals alike,” Angi said. “I am proud to be a part of the celebrations that make Valdese a Friday night destination for all to enjoy.”
