GREENVILLE, N.C.— Freeboot Friday, the official pep rally of home football games, kicks-off Family Weekend with music by The Legacy Motown Review. This alive-at-five event features live music, children’s’ activities, grog, food, and more! Thanks to the generous support of Wells Fargo, Freeboot Friday is FREE to all ECU Alumni, students, and fans and is filled with Pirate Pride.

Paying homage to the music that molded multiple generations, and gave Detroit a claim to fame other than cars, The Legacy Motown Review takes you back to the days of The Drifters, The Coasters, The Jacksons, Earth Wind & Fire, The Temptations, and so many more legendary icons! Featuring talented performers that dance and sing, plus an amazing six-piece horn band, you will be transported back in time to one of the most influential periods in American Musical History.

Uptown Greenville welcomes Pirate Nation to join in the celebration at Five Points Plaza and cheer on the home team!
