We’re proud to announce the rescheduled date for The Will McBride Group is April 27, 2024. This rescheduled concert will follow a traditional format with tickets being show-only rather than a “Party Package.” An extended intermission "meet the band mingle" in the Studio and Lobby Bars is planned where an excellent selection of beers, wines and other beverages will be available for purchase. The Arts in April Music Festival is an annual event offering a blend of free and ticketed live music happenings in downtown New Bern. Don't miss The Will McBride Group and other fantastic live music April 27th. The Will McBride Group is a North Carolina based band with the vibe of Steely Dan (only funkier), John Mayer (but jazzier), Santana (with more vocal), and Stevie Wonder (except edgier). It's guaranteed good time groove. Since 2009, songs from their four studio albums have been in rotation on 120 FM/Internet stations worldwide and listened to over 175,000 times. They’ve opened for ZZ Top, Styx, Eddie Money, Leon Russell, Steve Miller Band, Mother's Finest, Delbert McClinton, and more. Their fifth studio album (Oct ’23) is now on all music outlets and already receiving critical acclaim from veteran North Carolina radio hosts. Doors open for seating at 7:00PM with the concert starting at 7:30PM. All tickets $24.00 (including fees).
