Jim Quick & Coastline to continue “Rockin’ the Forest” Dec. 28

The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts, 405 S. Brooks St., will continue its 2018-19 “Rockin’ the Forest” music series on Friday, Dec. 28, at 7:30 p.m. with Jim Quick and Coastline.

Over 25 years in the making, Jim Quick and Coastline, like their namesake the Atlantic Coastline Railroad, have been traveling the "tracks" of the southeast, and connecting with the hearts of loyal "Coastline Crazies." Pulling from the threads of Soul, Blues, R&B, and Americana, Jim Quick and Coastline weave together their own genre of music known as Swamp Soul. Delivered with precision by front man Jim Quick and his band, this group captures the true, honest spirit of traditions born and bred in the small southern towns of America.

The band currently maintains an average of 250 tour dates per year, with an ever-growing fan base that is as diverse as the music of the band itself.

Advance tickets are $10 each plus tax and can be purchased online with a Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover credit card at www.wakeforestrencen.org/event/rockin-forest. Advance tickets may also be purchased with cash, check or credit card at the Renaissance Centre Box Office, 405 S. Brooks St. On the day of the concert tickets can be purchased at the door.

Assembling some of the top musical acts in our area, the Rockin’ the Forest music series will feature a variety of popular beach music and cover bands that play rock and roll covers from classic to modern rock, with a little funk and original music thrown in.

Each Rockin’ the Forest concert will also include a cash bar serving beer and wine.

Designed to offer local audiences first rate performances that previously required area residents to travel to Raleigh, Chapel Hill or Durham, Rockin’ the Forest will take place inside the intimate comfort of the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre.

The next “Rockin’ the Forest” concert will feature The Legacy Motown Revue on Friday, Jan. 18, at 7:30 p.m. To view the complete 2018-19 “Rockin’ the Forest” concert schedule, visit  www.wakeforestnc.gov/rockin-the-forest-music-series.aspx.
