GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) — The first of five concerts as part of the Concert on the Common will take place this Thursday at Town Common in Greenville.

Jim Quick and the Coastline Band will headline Thursday’s event which will feature several adult food trucks and beverages served in the park. The concert begins at 6 p.m. at the Toyota Amphitheater on Greenville Town Common.

“Our concert series has grown every year and we are delighted to be working with the town to bring free live entertainment back to Town Common,” said Henry Hinton, chairman of Inner Banks Media, the radio station group which presents the series every year. “Our lineup this year is full of bands that have been requested and favorites from years past.”

The other four concerts are listed below. Each will take place on a Thursday with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. for the 6 p.m. performance.

No coolers are allowed in the park and there is no parking behind the amphitheater without a permit. Audiences are encouraged to bring beach chairs or blankets to sit on as there are no permanent seats at the amphitheater.

“We love doing this for the city,” Hinton said. “It’s a great family event in a beautiful setting, so we’re looking forward to another great year for our concert series.”
