The Covington Parks and Recreation Department will be presenting a weekend of music at the River Rock Amphitheatre.
On Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., local band Moonshine Express will perform, with several members of local band On Common Ground joining them. They play a variety of country and rock and roll music.
Also, this will be the last performance of Moonshine Express, as the group recently announced they will be making some changes to the group and renaming the band.
“Come out and enjoy a evening of good music and wish them well after the many years they have been playing together,” said Allen Dressler, Covington Parks and Recreation director.
The music resumes on Saturday at 6 p.m. with the Fuzzy Duo from Roanoke taking the stage.
The duo is made up of members of the band Fuzzy Logic, who perform a vast array of musical genres.
At 7:30 p.m. the Vega-bonds, a quintet from Nashville, Tenn., will take the stage.
The Vegabonds, who got their start in Alabama in 2009, will provide a two-hour show of music which combines elements of Southern rock and country.
The Vegabonds also have five albums to their credit.
“So grab your chair or blanket and come out and join us for two evenings filled with great entertainment,” Dressler added. “The events are free and concessions will be available.”
