Jazziando at Bond Brothers Eastside

8-10 PM | 602 E. Chatham Street | Tickets

Local band Jazziando seems like the perfect fit for this growing and diverse hot Latin scene in the Triangle area. The band performs as a 5 to 7-piece and is bringing an agile and unique sound to the scene. Breaking away from the traditional “salsa” formulas, the creative Latin Jazz ensemble is making music that is both relaxed and hot!

Performing instrumental Latin Jazz, along with some Brazilian infused rhythms, allowing you to just sit back enjoying their sound, or get on the dance floor moving to the mambos.

Baozi Food Truck at Cotton House

5-9 PM | 307 S. Academy Street

With vegetarian, Asian fusion and southern options on the menu, the Baozi food truck will be serving up their local Carolina-style steamed buns this Friday evening. The truck will be on-site at Cotton House Craft Brewers in Downtown Cary from 5-9 PM.

Kelley & The Cowboys at Koka Booth

Koka Booth Amphitheatre | Gate opens 3 PM | Show starts 4 PM | Tickets

A native of NC, Kelley Breiding has been hailed by many as “the new queen of country music” and this “girl with the big voice” is ready to open up the new, month-long series called Pickin’ in the Pines at Koka Booth Amphitheatre.

She and her band, Kelley & the Cowboys formed in 2005 and they will be kicking off the month-long Pickin’ in the Pines series. With a firm grasp on the old country standards, Kelley enjoys writing songs in that same tradition and whether she brings new or old songs to the jukebox, they all have that hypnotic, timeless sound.
