A flurry of musicians will be coming to Rexburg to participate in the 7th annual Rock the Block event at Hemming Village.
"We just want to come and bring the community together," Sam Schultz, one of the members of the group Culture Crew, told BYU-Idaho Radio. "The one thing I love about Rexburg, I also have experienced this at other Mormon schools like BYU in Provo, is you get all these different cultures...all these different types of people from different states and different, even countries, and they all come to this little town with one common goal."
The music duo "Culture Crew" will be hosting the event and say they are excited to be back in a place where they've built memories.
"We have ties to Rexburg, Idaho, you know we all grew up LDS, my dad used to actually work at Ricks College back in the late 70's, early 80's as a choir director," Schultz said.
The event is a combination of "music, message, and entertainment for a good cause," according to the event's Facebook page. Schultz says they'll be bringing along several performances including crowd-favorite James the Mormon, Pati, Allred, Preston Pugmire and the DJ Club.
"We got reggae, we got hip hop, we got pop, soul," Schultz said. "It gives a chance to come out, get rid of their fears of coming back to school, maybe it's their first year, but also just socialize, have a good time, listen to good music and get to know the community."
Schultz says the event is free and will be held at Hemming Village on September 15 starting at 7 PM.
