Historic Downtown Bolivar

Music On The Square

If you thought you had to slug your way through crowded roads to see live music in Memphis because you thought there wasn't any other place to see such entertainment, you'd be wrong. Every Friday night at 7:00pm, from April through October, Bolivar puts on its festive face and hosts Music on the Square right behind our gorgeous old courthouse.

You might hear "Elvis" or maybe one of our great bluegrass bands. Maybe you'll come by in time to catch some soul-stirring gospel choirs from the area. But whatever your pleasure or whenever you stop by, you'll be treated to a musical extravaganza. And the only admission charge is that you bring a smile.

But wait! The best may be yet to come every Tuesday when we kick off "Open Mike Night" which offers up and coming talent the chance to shine. Maybe one night we'll get one of those folks that didn't exactly make it to the finals of American Idol... or maybe we'll hear the next Tanya Tucker. But whatever it is, you can bet Music on the Square will be a hit every week.

If you represent an established band and would like to inquire about booking a session, please contact Calvin Howell at 901-485-0211. For Open Mic Night, talk to Steve Woods at 731-609-6693.
