For this week’s last Grass Valley Friday Market of the season, attendees will be treated to two musical styles – rock ‘n’ roll and bluegrass – courtesy of Hyperdrive and On The Loose, respectively.

On The Loose performs traditional and new bluegrass, and gospel. The band includes Randy Allen on mandolin, Penny Allen on guitar, Ron Gaynor on dobro, Craig Mozley on bass and Rob Shotwell on banjo.

Together one year, Hyperdrive favors rock ‘n’ roll covers by groups such as AC/DC, Led Zeppelin and Sublime. Band members are guitarist Steve Sprintz, drummer Manny Street, bassist Joe Baum and rhythm guitarist Bud Beebe. All perform vocals.

The free Friday Market is from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on Mill and Main streets.

Friday Market’s attendance this summer has been up 30 percent according to producer Ray Diggins, with more than 200 merchants, restaurants, farmers, artists and crafters participating in the weekly seasonal street festival.
