Cyril Neville's Royal Southern Brotherhood will kick off Ocean Springs Live on Saturday.

Orgainzers with the concert series Ocean Springs Live will be moving Saturday’s show indoors as the threat of severe weather lingers in the area.

The show has been moved to the Trent Lott Performing Arts Theater in the Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center.

Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. Blackwater Brass will hit the stage at 5:30 p.m.

The show’s headliner, Cyril Neville’s Royal Brotherhood, will perform later in the evening.

Vicki Applewhite said seating for the show is limited.

“Seating will be limited to 330 people at the theatre. Admission will be completely free, but due to the limited number of seats available, we ask that everyone arrive when the doors open at 4:30, as seats will be first come first seated,” she said.

Applewhite said guests may bring their own unopened alcoholic beverage that will be opened, tagged and checked for them in the lobby.

“They may have access to their drinks at any time,” Applewhite said. “Tips go to the Rock U 2 Foundation as well.”

Non-alcoholic beverages will be available for sale in the lobby for $1 and all proceeds go to the Rock U2 Foundation.

Beverages may be consumed in the lobby at any time, Applewhite said.

No beverages will be allowed inside the theater unless being consumed from a souvenir Mary C. O’Keefe cup, with the lid securely closed. The cups are  $5 and will be available for sale in the lobby. All cup proceeds benefit the Mary C. O’Keefe Cultural Center.
