The final installment of this year’s Friday Cheers will have you reaching for some sweet tea and hankering for some delicious barbeque as two roots-driven country artists hitch their wagons along the James.
The penultimate week of this year’s series will feature two exciting electronic artists who have been making digital waves in the vast ocean of self-produced artists that has only swelled in the age of Youtube and Spotify.
The Friday Cheers lineup the week before the summer solstice really brings the heat with the blistering yet danceable garage punk of Gauche and the hot indie rock spotlight that seems to be following NYC band Parquet Courts.
This year, Friday Cheers will be partnering with “Festival of the River;” a three-day music and arts festival celebrating the James River and the Chesapeake Bay. Both of this week’s artists will perform alongside the Richmond Symphony Orchestra in a can’t-miss musical extravaganza.
Nelly, a multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning rap superstar, entrepreneur, philanthropist and actor, has continually raised the bar for the entertainment industry since stepping on the scene in 2000 with his chart-topping album, Country Grammar.
While the warm weather on June 1st might have us staring out the window looking outside, the music at Friday Cheers will have you looking inside yourself as two introspective singer-songwriters hit the big stage.
