Friday Night Live Features The Boscoe France Band

fridaynightlive 300 2MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/11/13) – Madisonville native son Boscoe France and his band will be the featured act for the summer monthly free festival, Friday Night Live, July 12 in downtown Madisonville.
 
After graduating Madisonville-North Hopkins High School, France left home for Music City Nashville, spending 15 years playing guitar for big names like Los Lonely Boys, Tim McGraw and Trisha Yearwood. He also worked as a stage manager for Montgomery Gentry and head lighting technician for Brooks and Dunn.
 
Moving back to Madisonville to be with his young son, France formed the band, The Library Trio, finding stead work at places like Lamasco Bar and Grill in Evansville, Ind. Later he formed The Boscoe France Band.
 
France gained national attention when he won the Guitar Center Battle of the Blues in August. As one of the six finalist at the Guitar Center's 2012 Battle of the Blues held at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, he performed "Amazing Grace," and "Rock Me, Baby," for the win. He was awarded $25,000 cash, studio sessions with Grammy winner Pete Anders, music equipment and endorsement deals.
 
Prior to the Boscoe France Band's performance beginning at 8:30 p.m., Larry Grisham & The Beat Daddys will perform at 6 p.m., and Brad McCrady as "Elvis," will perform at 7:45 p.m.
 
Other activities include the Madisonville-Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce Beer Garden, Madisonville Fire Department Kids Obstacle Course and a motorcycle cruise-in.
 
All activities are free and open to the public. Food vendors will be selling concessions.
