Post Date:06/25/2021 1:16 PM
Riverside Sounds LogoThe City of Roswell's free Riverside Sounds concert series is back! Join us once again at Riverside Park, 575 Riverside Road in Roswell, on the first Saturday of the month from August through October. Concerts are from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.

"We are excited to bring back Riverside Sounds to our community and to introduce Roswell to the phenomenal original artists who are bringing live music back to the stage," said Beckie Hawkins, Cultural Arts Manager of the Recreation, Parks, and Historic and Cultural Affairs Department. "After the challenging year we’ve all had, we hope everyone can relax and enjoy the great mix of musical genres—including funk, soul, Americana, rock and country—that we have in store!"

Beer, wine, and sangria will be available for purchase at each concert, as well as various food and snack options (until sold out). Guests are also invited to bring their own picnic food and chairs.

The following are the featured artists for each month:
  • August 7 – Joslyn & the Sweet Compressions: A headlining favorite at regional clubs and music festivals, Joslyn & the Sweet Compressions deliver a hook-filled mix of funk and soul. Commanding the stage, Joslyn’s timeless voice glides through silky soul and funk grit, on a set of tasty and thoughtful original music.

  • September 4 – Flying Buffaloes: Fueled by their desire to deliver the organic energy of rock-n-roll coupled with the lyrical honesty of classic country, these Nashville-based alt-country rockers have found themselves opening for a range of acts, including iconic rockers Drivin N Cryin, as well as acclaimed Red Dirt Country artist Wade Bowen, in addition to headlining tours throughout the South and Midwest.

  • October 2 – Seth Walker: Seth Walker is often cited as one of the most prolific contemporary Americana artists on the scene today. He’s a multi-dimensional talent who combines a gift for melody and lyric alongside a rich, Gospel-drenched, Southern-inflected voice with a true blue knack for getting around on the guitar. He's released ten albums, broken into the Top 20 of the Americana Radio Charts, reached No. 2 on the Billboard Blues Album Chart and received praise from NPR, American Songwriter, No Depression and Relix, among others.
