So with the football team returning back home, it's time for another installment of the McNeese block party concert series and it is going down this Friday evening. Best of all, it's free to attend and is open to all ages.

This Friday, the concert series will feature Gyth Rigdon and The Charlie Waye Band. Both artists are from the Southwest Louisiana area and are hometown boys.

Gyth was trusted into the national spotlight when he auditioned for NBC's The Voice and made it on the show landing on Blake Shelton's team. Gyth made it all the way to the finale of the show and finished as the runner-up of the show.

Charlie Wayne is a powerhouse singer whose original songs are getting major airplay on the radio. You will hear his hits like If You Showed Up, Lonely, Buzzin', and his current single Dance.
