More Concerts/Events at The Carrington pavilion

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

This is a petition to show support for an effort to bring more concerts/shows to Danville Va. The citizens of Danville would like to have more than 3 or 4 A & B names a year with more of a variety of music genres. Instead of just Country & Southern Rock.
Although we are a southern town, not everyone likes Country or Southern Rock n Roll alone. Most of us enjoy many different styles of music & entertainment. We crave Hip Hop, Metal, Punk, R&B, Beach Music, Alternative Rock, 80s, 90s & Stand-up Comedy!!
Tons of these acts pass us by while they play surrounding venues such as The Blind Tiger in Greensboro NC,The Harvester in Rocky Mount Va. or Phase 2 in Lynchburg Va. All which have a capacity of 1,000 or less & are booking multiple significant names to perform at their venues.
The Carrington Pavilion is a beautiful venue we have on Craghead St. in our downtown River District. It has a capacity of 5,100 & is capable of hosting shows from March through October with the proper support! Mainly the support of the citizens of Danville.
This is solely a petition to show the City Council of Danville that it's citizens would fully support more concerts/shows being brought to our city.
We ask that Council adds this in their upcoming budget for a trial run & establish a diverse board or person with diverse music interests to head the recruiting & promotion of these acts.
This is in no way is an attempt to discredit the Harvest Jubilee Concert Series. That board has & will continue to faithfully provide this city with great entertainment hopefully for many years to come! We look forward to the shows they bring to us in the future!
