SYLVANIA, Ala. — DixieLand restaurant in Sylvania is currently holding a southern gospel summer concert series. The series will last eight weeks. It began on July 1 and will feature the final concert on August 19.

Each concert in the series is free and will be held inside on the stage at DixieLand. The music and fellowship will begin at 6 p.m. The kitchen at DixieLand will be in full operation, serving their famous fried catfish.

Weekly headliners for the event will include Jordan’s Crossing, The Sharps, The 718 Project, Ole Time Christians, and other recognizable names. The Sharps will be headlining this Friday’s night of gospel music. The Sharps are Fort Payne natives and have been nominated for a Diamond Award.

DixieLand’s Manager, Cody Wilemon, organizes the weekly event. This is the first year they’ve hosted the event.

“We just wanted to give back to the community and most of the other restaurants, locations and even churches that have been hosting summer gospel concerts have quit, so we wanted to step up to keep it going,” Wilemon said.

“The first Friday night The Sharps played and we had a packed house, so we’re looking forward to the future of the DixieLand Gospel Concert series,” Wilemon added.

For more information, contact DixieLand restaurant at 256-638-1888 or visit them on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/DixieLandRestaurant/.

DixieLand is located on AL – 75 in Sylvania, just across from Horizon Bank.
