Concert at the Courthouse:  Gigi Dover & The Big Love 

Friday, March 6

7-9 PM

FREE EVENT

This Concert Series is being sponsored by Ray & Charlotte Jenkins, Brooks Insurance, Dallas Express Pharmacy & Gastonia Sheet Metal

The Gaston County Museum will be hosting a concert series located in the newly renovated Historic Courthouse in Dallas, NC. The series will focus on Americana style music being performed by some of the best artist in the region.

Gigi Dover creates music that is heavily influenced by a mixed-bag of genres including Funk, Blues, Folk, and Jazz. Happily devoid of clichés, her music is played with precision and filled with little nuances that make you smile. Dover’s vocals reflect the late 60s era of music. The Charlotte native, who recalls reading album lyrics for fun when she was a child, started taking guitar lessons and writing songs at age 13. Dover co-founded and performed with regional band Rank Outsiders for 10 years. She is now lead singer for Gigi Dover and the Big Love, and is married to fellow band member and guitarist, Eric Lovell.

Seating for the concert is first come, first served and the doors will open at 6:30pm. For additional information about this program, please contact Jason Luker, Programs Coordinator, at 704-922-7681 ext. 105 or at [email protected].
