The McDuffie Arts Council is bringing back Eleventh Hour for a concert in Thomson. The concert is begins at 6 p.m. March 13 in the Depot. Although the group has performed twice in Thomson, this will be their first time in the historic Depot.
"It's a little more intimate setting, and I think they're the type of group that really will shine in that venue," said McDuffie Arts Council Chairman Marion Ivey.
Eleventh Hour's music is "eclectic, in the independent genre," according to lead vocalist Ilhwa Gallo. The band members hail from Ohio, West Africa, South Korea and Guam, but all currently live in the Central Savannah River Area as professional musicians. Mr. Ivey said they have added a keyboard and cello player since their last visit to Thomson.
"We're really looking forward to hearing them," he said, adding that the group will be performing songs from their debut CD, "Making it Real."
The arts council is offering a chance to win a pair of tickets to the concert through their website, www.mcduffieartscouncil.org., Mr. Ivey said.
Coolers are not allowed, Mr. Ivery said. Concessions will be available in the Depot.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Tickets may be purchased at the Thomson-McDuffie Chamber of Commerce office or the McDuffie Museum, both on Main Street, or Culpepper Ford. Seating is limited. Call 706-699-1804 for more information.
