Andy Velo, Jordan Rager free concert postponed

BUFORD -- The free concert scheduled for Saturday at the Buford Community Center's amphitheater has been postponed due to weather.

Country singers Andy Velo and Jordan Rager will play June 15 to kick off the venue's first concert of the 2013 series.

"We are excited to have these two up and coming artists bring their high-energy performances to our community," BCC Director Todd Cleveland said. "We invite families to bring their chairs and blankets and come enjoy a fun concert under the stars."

Velo is known for his radio hits "Hank It Up" and "Southern Thing." He has hit the road with Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Trace Adkins and Kid Rock over the years.

Loganville resident Rager got his claim to fame by appearing on NBC's reality show, "The Voice," and ended up on Blake Shelton's team. Although he didn't make it to the top, he has shared the stage with Kip Moore, Casey James, Gretchen Wilson, Bo Bice and David Allen Coe.

The show starts at 7:30 p.m. with the gates opening an hour prior to the event. BCC encourages chairs and blankets to the concert, but no outside coolers. There are concessions on site for purchase.

To keep the young ones busy, there will be a kid fun zone on the lawn from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

BCC is located at 2200 Buford Highway in Buford. For more information, visit www.bufordcommunitycenter.com or call 770-945-6762.
