Friday Night Live 91319

Birchler is a well-rounded entertainer. Area residents might know him as the producer and emcee of Downtown Farmington’s outdoor, summer concert series and its weekly, lunchtime concerts. He’s also the co-producer of Friday Night Live. This night, the singer-songwriter side of Tom will take the stage.

Tom’s focused on entertaining the audience with his energetic guitar-playing and wide-ranging vocal abilities. His originals are built on strong melodies, touching on the joy and heartbreak of love and the healing stability of family. He’s adept at covering American Standards as well as Elvis, Bob Seger, The Beatles and Motown classics.

Opening the evening is Bobby G, who’s at home with any genre of music. While he performs with Dr. Pocket, Emerging Soul, and Powderfinger (Neil Young tribute) he always enjoys playing solo. Bobby recently released an original-music EP and is currently working on a full-length album.

Friday Night Live focuses on singer-songwriters. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available in advance at Eventbrite.com and at the Farmington Civic Theater box office or at the door for $15. Cash only at the theater.

The Farmington Civic Theater, is located in downtown Farmington at 33332 Grand River Avenue. Additional concert information is available on the theater’s Facebook page.
