Contact: Stacy Ash 785-309-5770


(Salina, KS 07-16) Salina Arts & Humanities, in collaboration with downtown stakeholders, announces the next Friday Night Live concert event on July 22. Friday Night Live is a series of arts and entertainment programming for Salina residents and visitors designed to increase attendance and participation in arts-related events and to strengthen partnerships with local business owners in the downtown arts district.  Each week, a free-admission Friday Night Live concert will feature music and poetry in restaurants, bars, outdoor plazas and other venues.

       This week’s Friday Night Live event is a double performance by local band A.M., and McPherson band From Dust to Beating Hearts. Salina’s A.M. is an alternative group with
a charismatic and unique approach to the blending of R&B, soul, jazz and hip-hop. A.M. played this year’s Festival Jam and was featured at Street Eats and Beats in May.

From Dust to Beating Hearts is an independent rock band with a sound that is both melodic and edgy. Their lyrics engage the audience with themes of life, love and the difficult changes many endure. Influences include bands such as From Indian Lakes and Tiny Moving Parts. Lovers of alt or indie rock will enjoy this band’s lilting rifts and rock’n’ roll flow.

        The show is from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at Campbell Plaza, 123 S. Santa Fe. Admission is free. Stay tuned for upcoming announcements about the rest of Friday Night Live programming for July and August. For more information, call Stacy Ash at Salina Arts & Humanities at 785-309-5770.
