It’s going to be another great music weekend at the Brewery. Syren plays Saturday night, bringing their high energy rock show to the Tri Cities.
This band simply says: “We come to bring the Rock!” Quite the simple statement but boy, are they right. Whitney Collins is the voice behind the great vocals and she is joined by Jesse Pitcock- Guitar & Vocals, Brian Foster- Guitar, Todd Mccoury- Bass and Chris Ritchie on Drums. Cover is only $5 for this rock-out performance.
Need a place to hear great music on Friday night? The Brewery is still the place to go. Wise Old River is on the main stage. Wise Old River blends a variety of influences and instruments that combine tradition with originality. The group features vocalist/guitarist Jamen Denton (formerly of Virginia Ground and was recognized as best male vocalist by the GOTRICITES MUSIC AWARDS in 2005). Jeanne Denton provides well-crafted harmony vocals and occasional percussion. Steve Marshall provides a solid foundation on the “dog house” bass. Jim Denton adds acoustic lap steel, 12 string slide guitar, and bouzouki. Their sound has been described as “Eclectic-Americana.”
Both of these bands give wonderful live performances, so head on out to Holston River Brewing this weekend – I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. Add in the good food, great beer, delicious cocktails and fan-friendly atmosphere and you have the makings of a couple great evenings. And don’t forget Ladies night on Thursdays – everything is half off for the gals from 5:00 – 8:00. See you out there!
