Hello!

Two performances by The Blind Boys of Alabama at River Music Experience tonight and tomorrow will kick this week off right!  These living legends of gospel music own five Grammy Awards.  The always popular Gaelic Storm will take the Redstone Room stage on Tuesday, too!  Also, don't miss out on the QC Rock Academy Concert during lunch on Saturday.

 

RME has yet another big band this week; BoDeans will be playing Wednesday!  Don't miss this rare opportunity to see the Bodeans in an intimate setting.  Other shows at RME this week include Reid Brooks, Friday Live at 5, Mike Cochrane, Revenge in Mind, and Strange Neighbors Reunion Show.  Tap your own creativity with Acoustic Music Club and Songwriters in the Round.

 

The one and only "Carlton" will make an appearance downtown tonight at Modern Woodmen Park!  Fresh Prince of Bellaire fans better not miss the game!  The Bandits will complete a 3 game stretch tomorrow with Friday night fireworks.  The Bandits will also auction off a specialty jersey made-up of photos submitted by fans.  The Burlington Bees will be in town for a three game series Saturday through Monday.

 

We're excited to announce that Mantra is now open!  Do you love Indian cuisine?  You're in luck!  Read their menu and stop in for lunch or dinner. The Kerker Lofts will be opening soon, too!  Check out this Quad-City Times article and stay tuned for more news regarding the Kerker Lofts grand opening next month.

 

St. John Some truly gorgeous artwork will be on display through September 1 at the Library.  Don't miss your chance to see the St. John's Bible Exhibit while its in town.  Down the street, catch Augustana College professor David Ellis speak at the German American Heritage Center about the First Servant of the State: Frederick the Great's Leadership and Legacy in War and Politics.

 

DaVinci's Cocktails and Dining is now hosting T.J. Cracker, an acoustic cover artist, every Wednesday evening.  Also, enjoy trivia night each Tuesday at Dam View Inn.  The final Music on the Levee event takes place Wednesday evening and will feature Davenport Central's Jazz and Marching Bands performing on the LeClaire Park band shell.

RRL Logo SMALLRiver Roots Live is next weekend!  We can't wait for Better Than Ezra, Tonic, and Keller Williams with the Travelin' McCourys to perform with 14 more talented bands!  Of course, there will be mountains of Ribfest BBQ, too! Stay tuned for more details next week.

See you downtown!
