The Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts presents the Lloyd Carter Band on Friday, April 14, 2023, from 7-9 p.m., in the Turner Center Art Park, located at 605 N. Patterson Street. The concert is sponsored by Greater Valdosta United Way and is free to the public.

Community members are invited to bring their blankets or lawn chairs to this family and pet-friendly event, and relax in the park while enjoying the music. King of R&B and The Southern Cellar will be the on-site food and beverage vendors for this event.

Having roots in South Georgia, the Lloyd Carter Band is comprised of skilled musicians that are accustomed to performing in front any sized crowd—large or small. Mixing their original music with traditional country and party favorites, LCB members have shared the stage with many national touring acts ranging from gospel, country, and rhythm and blues. Their vast cover playlist and originals from Lloyd’s 2020 well-reviewed album titled “Nothing To Lose” leaves nothing short of pure entertainment. Carter has been received as one of the most respected voices in independent Country Music and was nominated the Country Male Vocalist of the year by the Josie Awards in Nashville, TN, at The Grand Ole Opry, and nominated Male Vocalist of the year with The Georgia Country Awards.
