Furniture World Magazine


Market-goers will once again be treated to a Market week filled with music, entertainment and plenty of free food and drink thanks to a series of concerts and themed events sponsored by the High Point Market Authority. The nightly “Stars Under The Stars” event series kicks off Monday evening, March 26 under the Showplace tent with multiple food and beverage stations and the most successful duo in rock history, Hall & Oates. With more than 60 million albums sold, Daryl Hall & John Oates’ rich repertoire includes eight number-one singles, along with dozens of hits throughout the past three decades. Top singles include: “Rich Girl,” “Kiss On My List,” “Maneater,” “Private Eyes,” “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do),” “Sara Smile,” “She’s Gone,” “One On One,” and 2002’s “Do It For Love.” Their latest album, Our Kind of Soul, features timeless classics, as well as new material borrowed from their Philadelphia roots. On Tuesday, March 27, dinner under the tent will be accompanied by jazz, blues and gospel great Melva Houston, a North Carolina native and one of the most sought-after stars at renowned jazz festivals around the world. Market guests can then rock-and-roll with Eddie Money on Wednesday night, March 28, singing his ‘70s hits “Baby Hold On,” “Two Tickets to Paradise,” and “Take Me Home Tonight,” while sampling a variety of food and beverage stations, and enjoy dinner with Market-favorite The Cookie Band on Thursday. On Friday, it’s time for the slick look, cool attitude and funky sounds of Morris Day and the Time, lots more food and beverage stations to choose from, and a full dinner service on Saturday evening. “Once again this Market, we’re planning a jam-packed concert series with something for nearly every musical taste,” says Brian D.
