Not everyone digs Country music, so if you are looking for a great act to see on Thursday night at Riverbend, consider the All-Star Band on the Unum Stage at 9:30 p.m. Packed with ten of the finest musicians anywhere, the All-Star band will entertain crowds of all ages. Complete with a three piece horn section (Actually the one from the 10,000 Maniacs show last summer), a Latin percussionist, drummer, lead guitar, bass guitar, keyboards and two of the finest vocalists out front, you will hear everything from Oldies like Same & Dave, to newbies from Here Come The Mummies and Adele.
As an added bonus, the band will be presenting a check to Orange Grove Center, bring their total to over $4,000 donated so far.
For those Jazz enthusiasts that say Riverbend doesn’t show enough love to that genre, two great acts appear on the TVFCU Stage tonight to prove you wrong. The Ben Friberg Trio plays at 6:15 p.m. and Rahsaan Barber & Everyday Magic play from 7:45 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. Rahsaan Barbber is a nationally known Sax player, having done stints with the Temptations, The Four Tops, and the Megaphones, amongst others. So, if you like Jazz, be there or be square.
See you there!
