Late Night Special kicks off Thursdays Live

Art, Concert Series, Events, News

MoRA’s Thursdays Live, presented by Edge City Brewery, is launching the 2022 season with one of our favorite bands—Late Night Special!

Live Music

Fronted by electric singer-songwriter Fred Heintz, Late Night Special delivers a soulful groove of rock, pop, and funk. This homegrown band is a national act performing in Idaho, Utah, Michigan, and Pennsylvania this spring. You won’t want to miss their perfect sound (or Fred’s hair.)

Kids and adults can test their skill at the football toss, basketball shootout, and axe (inflatable!) throwing games. The Big Air Street Team will have inflatable games set up around the patio and parking lot area for you to enjoy.
