The sounds of live music will travel streets in Corry during an upcoming Saturday afternoon thanks to local musicians.

Tyler McClain, 27, of Corry, submitted an event application to Corry City Council to have a truck with a musician-laden trailer drive on city streets. The request was approved at Monday's Council meeting. 

The event is being called Band on the Run.

While details such as date and route are still being hammered out, musicians and members of three area bands — Radioactive, South 40 and Refuge — have gotten together on two other occasions to bring music to isolated communities.

This traveling trailer of music has been seen recently in Jamestown over Easter weekend and in Union City on May 2. 

McClain said Jon Wilson Sr., of Jamestown, N.Y., started the initial "music parade" in Jamestown, which was received well.

"We did it in Union City, got a great response over there, too, and I wanted to bring it to Corry," McClain said.

The parade is contingent on good weather and schedules of musicians, but McClain said it will not be this Saturday and hopes to have it on May 30. A set date will be announced soon. 

McClain said residents can expect to see the musicians doing their country/rock performance for about two hours.
