Memorial Day Weekend concerts at Freshfields Village

Men of Distinction hit the stage on Friday, May 27

Kick off the summer and honor America’s military men and women at Freshfields Village’s Memorial Day Weekend Concert Series. A free, nightly concert will be held at the Village Green from 6 until 9 p.m. on May 27, 28 and 29.

The nation’s first Memorial Day was celebrated in Charleston in 1865, and now guests can head out to Freshfields for a long weekend of music, family and patriotism.

  • May 27: Men of Distinction - Back by popular demand, Men of Distinction live performances offer one of the most diverse repertoires in the industry. On any given night you will hear them perform Beach Music, Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Country, and Big Band/Swing material. One of their specialties is audience participation. Through careful song selection and skits, they allow the audience to become a part of the show.
  • May 28: Congdon & Company - The group is led by John Congdon, and they perform a variety of tunes from pop, rock and roll, rhythm & blues, jazz and beach music.
  • May 29: The 69 Ramblers - Formed by David Toma, longtime Charleston musician and native, this band pays homage to three of the main, American musical genres—blues, rock and Americana.  They promise a powerful stage delivery and exciting blend of music. 

Food and drinks will be available for purchase, with Taco Boy's mobile truck serving tacos. Bring a beach chair or blanket to this family friendly event. The Town of Kiawah presents the Memorial Day Weekend Concert Series.
