FFN Summer Concert Series Kickoff: Too Much Sylvia on May 17, 2024, 7 p.m.

Temple Field - 400 Main Street West Valdese, NC 28690

The Town of Valdese presents the Family Friday Night Summer Concert Series!

Too Much Sylvia -

Celebrating their 33rd year in 2023, Too Much Sylvia (2MS) has played over 3500 shows from DC to the Caribbean. 2MS was inducted into The Carolina Beach Music Hall (CBMA) of Fame in 2019. And one last fact that stands out - it’s been the same 4 guys since 2000 . . . 23 years! 2MS has added a 9’ LED video wall and a state-of-the-art sound system that takes the production up to another level.

Steve Long, the primary lead vocalist, also plays guitar. In 2020 & 2023 he won the prestigious Male Vocalist of the Year w/the Carolina Beach Music Association.

Eddy Howie covers the bass guitar duties and because of his natural high singing abilities, he’s able to sing the songs from the Jersey Boys to Journey!

Drummer Don Leonard works the solid groove with Eddy, while he flashes a smile, providing a great feel to keep the audience moving.

Rick Lee is the keyboardist who steps out front occasionally to get the crowd involved and sing a few R&R songs. Individually, he has been honored w/4 Songwriter and 5 Producer of the Year Awards from the Carolina Beach Music Association

Their vocal blend and harmonies are, really . . . a major part of the 2MS sound.  Combine all the above, with their tight, tasteful musical arrangements and it’s a presentation that is appealing to dancers and listeners at a comfortable sound level for everyone. 

The event is held on Temple Field located behind the Old Rock School. Bring a lawn chair & your dancing shoes! Concessions will be available for purchase. There are numerous opportunities for dinner at the local restaurants downtown. Activities for all ages will also be offered such as corn hole, ring toss, giant Jenga & more! Make your plans to join us in Valdese this summer.
