First Thursday Night Out in Cooper Young is when area independent business owners stay open late and dish it all up. Live music can be found at the Neighborhood Gazebo located at the corner of Cooper Street and Young Avenue and in other restaurant venues up and down the street. Browse and enjoy refreshments at local antique and retail shops while you are here. Chat with local artists selling their wares on the sidewalks. Be sure to sign up for drawings and giveaways starting at 5:00 pm. The antique and retail shops are open until 9:00 pm and the restaurants and bars usually stay open until well past midnight. It is a guaranteed good time for your family and friends!
We are excited to announce that The Candy Company will perform at the First Thursday Night Out on June 7 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Members include Billie Worley on guitar and vocals, Patrick Miller on guitar and vocals, Terrence Bishop on Bass, Jeremy Stanfill on Drums, Nashon Benford on Trumpet and Blair Montgomery on Sax.
The Candy Company were born out of the Memphis summer heat, bringing Rock N Roll back to its Memphis roots: Bass, Drums, Guitar, and Horns. With catchy melodies, lyrics, and beats that’ll hook you, the Candy Company are a throwback to a happier time in Rock. Hard working and full of energy, it’s about good times and good friends with this band.
