“Rockin’ the Forest” concludes with The Magnificents Band March 27

The popular beach music band, The Magnificents Band, will headline this year’s final “Rockin’ the Forest” concert on Friday, March 27. The performance gets underway at 7:30 p.m. at the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts, 405 S. Brooks St.

The Magnificents Band was formed by several students at Walter Williams High School in Burlington NC in 1964. Later becoming Willie T and the Magnificent's, the band quickly made a name for itself, eventually becoming one of the most sought-after R&B bands on the eastern seaboard. As music styles evolved the band went through several name changes before returning to its original name several years ago.

The perfect party band, The Magnificents Band has a wealth of live playing experience in varied styles of music, including Classic Soul, Beach, Motown, Top 40 and dance hits. The band is sure to please any crowd due to its diversity of high energy music and motivation to get people dancing.
