Two singers from Sister Hazel will perform as the headlining act Sunday during For the Fans Entertainment LLC's acoustic show.
In addition to Ken Block and Drew Copeland from Sister Hazel; Chris Young, the season four winner of Nashville Star ; Doug Jones from Cravin' Melon; and Jim Perkins will play at the Columbia County Amphitheater for the second concert of the Music Evolution Series.
"Acoustically in that venue, it's going to sound great," said Sean Frantom, a partner of For the Fans Entertainment.
Despite bad weather on the night before the March 16 concert featuring Bo Bice, the first concert brought a crowd of about 800, he said.
"My expectation is that there will be more than 800 people there, even though it's Masters Week," Frantom said.
He hopes the concert attracts out-of-town guests who want to try something different on a Sunday evening.
"We just felt like we needed to do a Masters show," Frantom said. "I really want to show off the venue to the outside (visitors).
"Of course, I want the locals there. This is built on the locals."
The concert begins at 5 p.m., but the gates open at 4 p.m. Frantom said he expects the show to conclude by 9 p.m.
The event will be catered by French Market Grille West.
The crowd seemed to enjoy all of the performances at the opening concert, Frantom said. He expects the acoustic show to be another crowd-pleaser.
"Bo was great to the fans, and I think people are going to see at this show, these guys are going to be the same way," Frantom said.
The next concert is set for April 27 and features Luke Bryan; Charles Kelly and David Haywood of Lady Antebellum; and 17 South.
"We want each show to get bigger," Frantom said.
Tickets for both concerts cost $25 at the gate or are available for $20 in advance at Wild Wing Cafe, Columbia County Community Events Building B, Merle Norman Studios in the Augusta area, and online at www.etix.com and www.forthefansentertainment.com.
