Riverfront Nights continues on Saturday, August 17th with Desert Noises. Opening for them is The Power Players Show Band.

Desert Noises makes music for shouting into canyons, jumping into rivers, and getting married to the wide-open road. With a strong maturity in their songwriting, they conjure the majesty of the American pastoral landscape.

Featuring some of the region's best musicians, The Power Players are a train-horn blast of a band that packs a sonic funk-punch.

All shows are child and pet friendly. Beer sales begin at 6:30 PM. Local opening bands start at 7PM and headliners hit their first notes at 8 PM sharp, playing until 10-ish. The Riverfront Nights Concert Series offers free admission to all.

Healthy lifestyles, sustainable development/business practices, and an intense love of outdoor recreation have made up the "three-legged stool" that's made our town the envy of the Southeastern U.S. 

No other venue provides the now legendary vibe of this unique musical series that aims to please all people, all the time.
