First Fridays is Oct. 5

Musical Renaissance Man Kent Anders of Polo is the nerve center of First Fridays. He is not only a skilled sound engineer to guarantee that the on-stage performers sound their best – he also excels on the guitar and banjo to support his own vocal talents. Photo supplied

Launching Oregon’s Autumn On Parade from five miles away – on Friday, Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. - at the Mt. Morris Moose Family Center may not be the official launch, but it works for musicians.

Once again the Moose Family Center will host the popular open stage music show.

Musicians will draw for time slots at 6:30 p.m. and performances will begin at 7 p.m. and continue until all musicians, even late arrivals, have had their turn on stage.

A jam session will follow until it is time for the traditional closing with “Will the Circle Be Unbroken.”

The musical styles vary widely including country, bluegrass, folk, blues, light rock, and eclectic blending of multiple genres.

The musicians will be supported by a professional sound system engineered by Kent Anders.

Music fans are encouraged to arrive hungry and thirsty as the Mt. Morris Moose Club offers a food and beverage service.
