The River just announced our River Summer Night Out artists and now the summer seems even further away! We cannot wait to see Matchbox 20 joined by The Wallflowers on July 24th at SPAC.
I had the pleasure of meeting Rob Thomas right before I joined the ranks at The River. I was working at WGY in the newsroom when I heard that Thomas would be performing in our studios. I never ask for special favors, so quietly approached Kevin and Shanna to see if it would be okay...to my delight, they said yes and next thing I knew, I was arm in arm with the guy! My silly school girl crush aside, what an amazing performer! I just know that Matchbox 20 is going to kill it this summer, but wait, there is more...
I just heard The Wallflowers for the first time live last year during the Empire State Plaza's summer concert series. It was the only concert that had to be moved inside due to weather. No problem, Dylan and crew packed them inside anyway and it was an amazing show! What a great way to kick-off the 6th Annual River Summer Night Out!
Are you as excited as I am?
