The Maxx band will be featured at the next Downtown Live concert, set for Thursday, July 11, 2024, at 7 p.m. on the East Main Street stage.

The Maxx comes to Statesboro on July 11. The six-member group performs classic oldies along with hot songs from today's pop music. The group plays 125 shows per year, and they tailor their set lists and choreography to every performance.

The seventh show of the series is set for Aug. 8 when The Fantasy Band takes the stage. Known as "The Carolina's Most Entertaining Party Band," the group will perform a variety of beach music, Motown, funk, soul and smooth R&B. They have played together for more than 20 years.
