AmadorArts: TGIF Concert in Plymouth features Slade Rivers - Fri July 19

The site of the July 19 free TGIF concert will be the Plymouth City Park at 9406 Main St., in the middle of downtown Plymouth, where the gazebo is and the weekly farmers’ market. From the Highway 49 roundabout, go west onto Main St. If you go east, you’ll be on your way to the Shenandoah Valley. There'll be no TGIF concert on July 26, because we'll see you at the Amador County Fair.

AmadorArts will be featuring the popular Slade Rivers Band which has been based in Amador County since 2007. The SRB has seen a number of personnel changes over the years but it has comfortably settled into the following line up. Steve (Slim) Doss, upright bass and vocals; Bill Griffin, electric mandolin and vocals; Slade Rivers, guitar and vocals. Don't forget your chairs and picnics.

The music is influenced by the legacies of Hank Williams, Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzel, and Willie Nelson. At any given time you’ll hear a mixture of old school honky tonk, western swing, maybe a little rock-a-billy and, and a fair share of original music.

The band plays county fairs, cowboy festivals, street dances, street festivals, private parties, and just good ol’ honky tonks.

Just like our hit song says, “You get your head to bobbin’ and your arms to flappin’/ pretty soon you got the whole dance floor clappin’ to the chicken butt shuffle.” Just good time music with a shuffling beat!
