“We’re excited to offer local artists a platform to share some of their phenomenal music” said Tides General Manager Joe Gregory. “This area is full of so many talented musicians, and we hope this weekly series can provide a brief escape for fans who are looking to add some entertainment at the end of their week. We’re thankful that our friends at HyVal Industries partnered with us to present this exciting opportunity.”

Jack Up The Volume Concert Series will be featured each Friday night at 7 p.m. on the Tide's Facebook page.
