Real Good for FREE: Rockin’ On the River

The schedule of bands for the summer-long Rockin’ On the River concert series in Troy has been announced, and once again Wednesday evenings will be filled with rock & roll echoing through the Collar City. The series runs for 11 weeks from June 18 through August 27, and as usual the focus is squarely on tribute bands.

The free outdoor concerts take place from 5-8:30pm on Wednesdays. The June and July performances will be held at the Green Island Bridge Parking Lot, while the August concerts move over to Riverfront Park.

Here’s the schedule for the 2014 Rockin’ On the River series:

    Wow they’ve really got their finger on the pulse of people of Troy. Are the people booking these gigs from outerspace? Of course there is that statue of Zac Brown (who?) in the Pidgeon Park so we are all awaiting that tribute with bated breath….clueless…..

  2. J Hunter says:

    My question is this:

    Who are Eastbound Jesus going to do a tribute to? Eric Clapton, maybe?

  3. hopefully they will sing all blind owl songs
