The past several shows we've included teen band. The Doorknobs kicked this show off with a bang:
These guys were very talented, and brought a nice contingent of supporters to the show.
Next up was Speakerboxx. Rock-n-Romp was rocked in a way it has never been rocked before.
And everybody did this:
The next band, the Parkington Sisters from Cape Cod, Massachusetts, were lovely in every way. Their haunting mix of sophisticated folk, enchanting vocal harmonies, and gorgeous strings put a spell over us all.
Even though it was crazy hot, the kids managed to stay cool with all sorts of sprinklers and water slides:
Levitt Shell for having us again. Also thanks to the Memphis Grizzlies for bringing their big inflatable slide, and to this show's special sponsor, the Memphis Music Foundation. Check the MMF out-- they do great things for music in this city. Thanks again to this season's other sponsors, Whole Foods and Central BBQ. Also thanks again to our wonderful volunteers, who make life bearable for the RnR Board, and who make the shows run that much more smoothly. Pshew, I'm all thanked out.
Oops, no I'm not. Most of all, thanks to YOU folks for coming out. We're always flattered by the support we get. See you guys in September 25th for a cooooooooooler show at the Mid-South Maze!
