Chairmen Of The Board

The Sanford Arts & Vine Festival at the Mann Center is thrilled to welcome the historic Funk and Beach Music icons The Chairmen of the Board to the Mann Center Outdoor Stage. The Chairman of the Board are scheduled to help kick our beach music festivities into overdrive when they take the stage at 4:30 pm!

Chairmen of the Board was one of the hottest funk bands in the 70’s with classic hits such as “Give Me Just a Little More Time”, which sold over a million copies! “Give Me” was the foundation of the group’s excellent debut album, which also featured the infectious “(You’ve Got Me) Dangling on a String”.

Over the years, the Chairmen of the Board were among Soul Music’s most consistent hitmakers, scoring big with “Pay to the Piper,” “Finders Keepers,” “Chairman of the Board,” and the blissful “Everything’s Tuesday.”.

Though originally founded in Detroit, Michigan the Chairmen have found a special place in the hearts of the people of the Carolinas. Their music is adored by soul and beach music lovers alike. and in 1999 Chairmen of the Board were inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame. And in the past few years, The NFL Carolina Panthers have featured the group in a video, and a Half Time Performance and continues to play their music during home games.

Make plans to join us and The Chairmen of the Board, at the 2018 Sanford Arts & Vine Festival at the Mann Center, Saturday, May 12. It’ll be a full day of arts, crafts, food, beverages and beach music, right in the heart of downtown Sanford.  See you there!
