The schedule for Troy’s weekly Wednesday night Rockin’ On the River concert series has been announced, and there are some changes.
Unfortunately, the changes don’t involve the tribute band mania which took hold of Rockin’ On the River last summer and apparently will still be raging throughout the summer of 2013.
The concerts in June and July will take place in the usual spot, the Green Island Bridge Parking lot just north of the Green Island Bridge. But the August shows will move to Troy’s Riverfront Park. All shows are rain or shine, and in the event of inclement weather, organizers will be erecting a huge tent.
All concerts take place at 5pm on Wednesdays. And of course, admission is FREE.
Here’s the 2013 line-up of performances for Rockin’ On the River:
THE GREEN ISLAND BRIDGE PARKING LOT SHOWS
June 19: Aquanett (80’s rock tribute band)
June 26: Start Making Sense (Talking Heads tribute band)
July 3: Separate Ways (Journey tribute band)
