The 2023 Piedmont HealthCare Friday After 5 Summer Concert Series resumes in Downtown Statesville on Friday, August 4, with the Southern rock sounds of Dani Kerr & the Skeleton Krew.

Kerr was recently featured on “America’s Got Talent” and impressed the judges and audience with her talent. She will return for the live shows this fall.

Dani Kerr & the Skeleton Krew is an electric, high-energy group that creates a unique blend of soul-powered Southern rock-and-roll. The Skeleton Krew will take you on a nostalgic ride of raw music influenced from Southern rock, hard rock, soul, blues, funk and jazz.
