Summer Concert Series Presents the Etowah River Band,  Sunday, July 10th from 7 to 9 PM

 Tightly woven harmonies, warm  acoustics and fabulous comedic chemistry make The Etowah  River Band more than just a local musical duo. Although they like to call their music "Coffeehouse Country", this band embraces a cornucopia of genres-Pink Floyd meets Tricia Yearwood, The Cars and Emmylou Harris. The Etowah River Band is a force to behold onstage! 

After-dinner light food and beverage service available compliments of Fusco's Via Roma Restaurant.  Tickets $12 online, $15 at the door.
