High Point Market announces entertainment for fall market

Stars Under the Stars, the popular series of events at High Point Market, is offering two unique nights of entertainment at Fall Market, October 14 – 18, 2017.

On Sunday, October 15, one of the defining bands of 1970s Classic Rock, Grand Funk Railroad, will grace Center Stage. Grand Funk’s tenure at the top of the charts turned out 19 hit singles, eight Top 40 entries, and two number one smashes, “Locomotion” and the iconic, “We’re An American Band.” Now, with 13 gold and 10 platinum records to their credit, the group brings its high-energy, hard-driving, soulful sound to seasoned fans and lovers of contemporary rock around the globe.

On Saturday, October 14, Casey James will light up Center Stage with his rich collection of bluesy, smoky songs. Rising to popularity as he sang his way into the finals of American Idol in 2010, James continued his commercial success with the 2012 Top 15 country single, “Crying On A Suitcase.” The music James loves most, though, is the blues, as evidenced by his most recent album, Strip It Down.

Doors open for both nights at 7:00 p.m. at Center Stage, between the Transportation Terminal and Showplace.  Early entry for market-goers who have been issued a Buyer pass will begin at 6:45 pm.  Complimentary food and drinks are provided to all market-goers with a current Fall Market pass and photo ID.  No one under the age of 15 will be admitted.
