FREE: Bands Announced for Troy’s Rockin’ on the River Concert Series
Rockin’ on the River is returning to Troy’s Riverfront Park again this summer with a line-up of 10 free concerts including the indie, adventurous sounds of Deerhoof and Saintseneca. There’s an emphasis on homegrown Local 518 musicians, not just as opening acts, but also as headliners. And of course, there’s the usual array of tribute bands, too.
The concerts take place at 5pm on Wednesdays, and the series kicks off on June 7 with perennial faves Almost Queen and concludes on August 9 with another tribute band, Rumours.
Admission is free.
Here’s the complete schedule of concerts for the 2017 Rockin’ on the River series:
JULY 5: The British Invasion Experience
AUGUST 9: Rumours: Fleetwood Mac Tribute
