FRANKLIN GROVE, Illinois — For more than a decade, Franklin Grove’s historic H.I. Lincoln Building has hosted some of the music world’s best artists as a part of their third Friday “Blues & Bluegrass” and special Fifth Friday shows. Among the “best of the best” in this stellar lineup has been Franklin Grove’s own Jim “Mr. Friday Night” Wolber.
Wolber’s musical talents, both vocal and guitar, are recognized by music fans from Nashville to Chicago. His country meets rock ’n’ roll music style has an appeal that everyone can enjoy.
In 2014, a Fifth Friday and Halloween both occur on Oct. 31, a confluence of dates that won’t occur again until the year 2025. Certainly, in addition to great music, the situation calls for special prizes for: Most Original Costume; Scariest Costume; and Most Beautiful Costume.
Two action-packed shows will be at 7 and 9 p.m. Seating is limited. Tickets are available for a $10 donation by calling the H.I. Lincoln Building at (815) 456-3030 daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays, or stop by the H.I. Lincoln Building during the same hours.
Wolber’s shows are always sell-outs, so get your tickets early.
