Music and a movie slated for Friday

There will be lots of family entertainment this Friday as a free concert and a free outdoor movie are both scheduled.
The Tyrone Regional Arts Council’s Fun Friday concert series continues in the downtown City Hotel Park with a special youth concert featuring local band “Left on Red”. The concert is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.
Comprised of area musicians, this exciting band plays a variety of original tunes, variations of current hits, and inspirational numbers. Lead singer and guitarist is Tyrone native Cory Jones. His brother, Cody Jones, plays drums with Andy Brisbin on guitar. Ben Gummo rounds out the band on the bass.
Although all four musicians have been members of various bands for several years, “Left on Red” has only been performing for the last six months. Plan to enjoy this special group’s emo-rock performance.
In the event of rain, the concert will be held in Joybeans Coffee Shop on Logan Avenue.
Following the concert, walk up the block and stay for Friday’s outdoor movie in the M&T lot next to Joybeans Coffee Shop.
According to a press release from TRAC, the featured presentation, which begins at dusk, is an animated film in which a true canine outcast becomes a heroic legend when he saves an entire Alaskan town with a little help from his friends.
Movies are provided through a special partnership with the Emmanuel Baptist Church Outreach program.
In the event of rain, the movie will be held in the Tyrone Community Players building on Logan Avenue.
Concert and moviegoers should bring blankets or chairs for seating.
Fun Friday Concerts are made possible by a grant from the PA Council on the Arts, a state agency, the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency and Tyrone Borough.
Celebrating its 20th year, the Tyrone Regional Arts Council brings to the Tyrone area, the Fun Friday concert series along with Summer Sundays at Reservoir Park and family outdoor movies at the M & T parking lot.
Summer Sundays at Reservoir Park’s amphitheater will feature the music of the big bands, Celtic Scotland, rock, folk and country. The first Summer Sundays concert is scheduled on July 10. The 18-piece big band “Keystone Society of Swing” will open the series.
