HOT SPRINGS NATIONAL PARK, Arkansas — The popular band Memphis Soul Revue returns to Hot Springs’ Bridge Street Entertainment District Friday evening (September 24) for a free public concert that will be preceded by a display of electric cars.
The Soul Revue’s performance and the electric car demonstration are part of the Bridge Street LIVE! series that began in June. The free concerts and entertainment events are sponsored by Visit Hot Springs.
Also on hand will be DJ Terrence, the local radio host from community radio station, KUHS, spinning old-school house music.

The district, including the electric car display, will open at 5 p.m. DJ Terrence will perform from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and the Memphis Soul Revue will perform from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.
For nearly 30 years, Memphis Soul Revue has performed thousands of events from wedding receptions to private parties to corporate events to fairs and festivals. The show band rocks the crowd with their polished choreography, dazzling costumes and dynamic vocals. The band consists of male and female lead vocalists, drums, bass, guitar and keyboards. All members sing backup and harmony.
The electric car display is sponsored by the Arkansas Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA), Adopt a Charger and Entergy Arkansas to celebrate the installation of four Level 2 – 240-volt electric vehicle charging stations at the nearby Hot Springs Visitor Center in Hill Wheatley Plaza. Those chargers are available to the public. Hill Wheatley Plaza is a short one-block walk from the Bridge Street car display.
Adopt a Charger, a nonprofit organization that installs electric vehicle charging stations, was awarded a grant from the Entergy Environmental Initiatives fund to enable the project.
Spencer Rhoden and members of the AEVA will be on hand to answer questions about electric vehicles and give the public the opportunity to look inside the vehicles and ask questions of owners.
The demonstration is designed to reach out to people to come explore the downtown area and support local shops and restaurants.
The entertainment district guidelines allow patrons over 21 to freely walk the district with beer, wine or spirits. The Bridge Street LIVE! concert events are confined to an area immediately surrounding Bridge Street that does not include the west side of Central Avenue. Food, drink, arts and community vendors will be on site
