The 7th an­nual in­stall­ment of the Rockin’ on the River event held at the Wil­son Point Men’s Club on Sun­day, Au­gust 26 brought out crowds of thou­sands who were ready to rock and en­joy the warm sum­mer day.

Lo­cal bands Kanye Twitty, Red Dirt Rev­o­lu­tion, Crush­ing Day, The Damn Con­nellys, The New Ro­mance, and Awaken all pro­vided live mu­sic as peo­ple posted up lawn chairs along the wa­ter­front.

The con­cert was orig­i­nally sched­uled for June 3 at Con­rad’s Ruth Villa in Mid­dle River but it was post­poned due to rain. Those in­volved with the Rockin’ on the River still promised that the event was go­ing to be big­ger and bet­ter than ever de­spite this setback af­ter the Men’s Club stepped up and of­fered the venue.

The money raised from the event ben­e­fits lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tions such as the Back River Restora­tion Com­mit­tee, which was in­te­gral in mak­ing the event hap­pen.
