Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Concert Series Returns with The Ultimate 90’s Experience, Gump Fiction

We’re kicking off the 2024 Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series in Downtown Statesville, NC.  Join us this Friday, May 3 June 14 (RESCHEDULED) at 6pm, to rock and roll with Gump Fiction, the Ultimate 90’s Experience. 

Gump Fiction is a high-octane, nostalgia-fueled time-machine with one totally radical destination: the 1990s. Known as the Ultimate 90s Experience, they will take you back to the days of dial-up internet, slap bracelets, Tamagotchi pets, and the music you forgot you loved. Gump Fiction is your chance to go back in time and rock out to your favorite A-side tracks, from Nirvana to Britney Spears, and everywhere in between.

You think Gump Fiction is just your everyday cover band?  As if! These four guys and a girl bring an obsession with all things 1990s and an ability to interest and engage each crowd in front of them.  Since 2012, the band has performed hundreds of shows across the world, from small, corporate events to high-profile, city-wide festivals for crowds of over 25,000. Gump Fiction is committed to take your Friday night to the next level through quality music, entertaining showmanship, and of course, your favorite hits of the 90s!

The Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series offers FREE entertainment to Statesville’s residents, neighbors, and visitors in Downtown Statesville from May through October and features music of all styles. The series is also made possible by the presenting sponsorship of Flow Automotive of Statesville. Whether you like the sound of decades past, Country, Blues or Rock and Roll, you’ll hear something you will enjoy dancing and singing along to!

 The concerts are held in Downtown Statesville on West Broad Street in front of Mitchell Community College from 6 – 8:30 pm. Beer, wine, spirits, soft drinks, water, and food will be available for purchase beginning at 5pm.  Bring your chairs and enjoy a great night of music, but remember no pets, outside beverages, or coolers are allowed.

This year, each Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 concert will support a non-profit organization, offering them a booth to share information about their program and collecting donations on their behalf. We are excited to announce that this week's event will be dedicated to benefiting Rainbow Kidz, a unique community resource provided by Hospice of Iredell County, dedicated to meeting the special needs of children and their families during grief or loss. Rainbow Kidz provides a wide range of services, facilitated by licensed clinical social workers, completely free of charge to families and schools.
