Music on Main Street Keeps Lilburn an Entertainment Destination

Lilburn CID stakeholders Scott and Alicia Mecredy have owned and operated Music on Main Street (MOMS) in downtown Lilburn since May 2011 when they purchased the 1895 historic home at 113 Main Street. After a few months of interior renovations, they started offering music lessons, and it was obvious they were filling a community need. But they set their sights beyond music lessons – they saw an opportunity to grow local talent and offer the experience of live concerts by world-class artists.

To make their vision a reality, the Mecredys had to make property improvements to allow for a variety of music-related activities. Using the gentle slope of their spacious backyard, they built an outdoor stage for artists, fundraisers, weddings, summer youth camps and others with emerging talents. They also remodeled their attic to accommodate a recording studio that doubles as a small concert hall in the winter months. Thanks to their hard work and business savvy, MOMS is now a thriving hub of musical activity all year long, with sell-out weekend concerts and young musicians anxious to display their skills. The Lilburn CID wishes MOMS continued success as a first-class entertainment destination.
