Hello!
RRL Logo SMALL

We'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone who made River Roots Live a tremendous success over the weekend!  Thanks to all of our volunteers and sponsors in addition to everyone who came out and supported the festival. RRL isn't possible without each and every one of you!

 

We'd also like to take a moment to congratulate Bones BBQ, a Davenport based BBQ vendor, that won the people's choice award at the festival.  Bones BBQ is the first local BBQ vendor to ever win this award.  Stop into his place at 4707 Brady Street for a bite to eat and say congratulations!

 

The Nadas are one of Iowa's signature bands with over 125,000 albums sold and the group will hit the Redstone Room tonight!  Other RME shows this week include Friday Live at 5, As A Heart Attack, Franti Project, and The Devil Whale.   Jim The Mule and The Dawn's joint CD Release Show will rock RME on Friday night; get there early to catch openers Busted Chandeliers and Kerry Tucker Band.

 

The River Bandits are in action tonight and tomorrow before returning to Modern Woodmen Park on Wednesday.  Friday night is City of Davenport night at the ballgame in addition to Fireworks after the game and a Bandit Wedding.  Tonight marks another Thirst-Day Thursday and next Wednesday's game includes a Presidential bobble-head giveaway!

 

Join the Davenport Public Library through the end of the month as they display St. John's Bible.  A master calligrapher, Paul Herrera, will put on a free demonstration and lecture Monday evening.  Herrera has been lecturing and instructing in lettering and calligraphy for over thirty years throughout the United States and Canada.

 

The NASA Art Exhibition continues at the Figge and enjoy a film titled "When We Left the Earth" on Saturday.

 

See you downtown!
