Popular Nashville band The Cold Stares and Midwest favorite CALABASH will perform live Friday September 1st at the outdoor Beer Garden & Concert overlooking the Ohio River at Tropicana’s Outdoor Events Plaza. A $10 Evansville HydroFest™ Admission Wristband admits attendees ages 21 and up into the event which runs 6:00 pm to 12:00 midnight.
Concertgoers can expect a genuinely great music experience. “Authenticity” is a word frequently used to personify The Cold Stares. Band front man, Chris Tapp, explains, “We’re not just a blues band, or just a rock band, or anything other than who we are.” According to The CALABASH website, “A flowing mix of rock, blues, reggae, and folk is carefully woven into each musical composition.” In addition to music, the Beer Garden & Concert will offer affordably priced ice-cold Anheuser-Busch products and other libations, along with hamburgers, hot dogs, and snacks.
The $10 Wristband also admits those ages 13 and above into all three days of American Power Boat Association hydroplane racing on Labor Day weekend. Ages 12 and under are free. Admission Wristbands may be purchased at all six Evansville-area Schnuck’s stores, nine Heritage Federal Credit Union locations, the Evansville Museum of Art, History and Science, and SWIRCA until Thursday, August 31st. Beginning Friday, September 1st, Admission Wristbands will be available for purchase at the following Admission Gates on Riverside Drive: Court Street attended by SWIRCA, Main Street attended by CASA, and Cherry Street attended by the Evansville Museum Guild. For each $10, the non-profit organization earns $2 to further their good work in our City.
During the three-day event, Evansville HydroFest™ will host the American Power Boat Association’s Eastern Divisional Championships on Saturday, and North American Championships on Sunday for 14 classes of Inboard Boats. To date, dozens of teams from across the United States and Canada have committed to compete. For event schedules and more information, please visit www.evansvillehydrofest.com.
