Take the bus!

What a great series we've had so far this summer!! And bigger than usual crowds. Please see the exciting announcement from East Haddam Parks & Rec Director, Tiffany Quinn.

We have arranged for a shuttle bus on Monday in anticipation of the larger crowds this week to see the New Riders of the Purple Sage! Please consider parking at Eagle Landing on the Haddam side of the swing bridge and the bus will bring you directly to the Gelston House between 5:30-7 p.m. Return trips will be made as well at the end of the concert. Please do not try to walk across the bridge- this will only slow the traffic down. Thank you to Marie Nichols and Nichols Bus Service for helping us arrange this service for our concert attendees.

So if you don't want to deal with parking for the New Riders of the Purple Sage show on Monday night - take the bus!

Rain, Rain Go Away!

So far it's looking okay for the show to be held outside tonight. As a general rule, the show is moved indoors if there is a 50% chance of rain or bad weather after around 2:00pm. So it can rain this morning  but will need to dry out this afternoon.

Tiffany Quinn will  be discussing MOR on the radio around 9:00am this morning - here is the station information. She'll be interviewed on the Travel with Kal show.

Tonight's show is the U.S. Coast Guard Academy Dixie Land Jazz Band. Bring your dinner or buy some great food from the Gelston House & join us down by the river for a wonderful night of music!

Welcome to 2014!

We have another great line-up for 2014 Music On The River season! Thanks to all who turned out for our first concert of the season, B. Willie Smith. We had one of the biggest crowds we've ever had! A wonderful night of music to be sure.

The second show was a rain out on the river but a hot show at the high school. Thanks to all who showed up to support our local band, Bluesberry Jam. They were awesome! For those of you who didn't brave the weather, here is a great clip of what you missed. (You can see another clip of the show here.)

Hopefully we'll have great weather for Monday's show - Tom Rush. So bring a picnic dinner, buy some great food from one of our biggest sponsors Iso at the Gelston House & join us down by the river for our 3rd show of the season!
