Clarksville, TN – The weekly Clarksville Parks and Recreation Department Recreation Report provides Clarksvillians with a glimpse at the activities and events that are available from the Parks and Recreation Department for them to enjoy together as a family.
This weeks highlights include:
“Backroad Brigade” to perform at Jammin’ in the Alley
The City of Clarksville and U.S. Bank will soon be jammin’ once again, Friday, September 21st in downtown Clarksville’s Strawberry Alley. This month’s free concert will feature four good ole boys from the backwoods of Clarksville, Tennessee.
Don’t let that fool you, because they know how to rock! Their band, Backroad Brigade, is like no other bands of their generation. Instead of power pop or death metal, they keep the sound of good, old-fashioned rock and roll alive.
Free concerts take place every third Friday of the month thru October and begin at 7:00pm. In addition to the live music and market vendors, downtown restaurants will offer outdoor dining for Jammin’ in the Alley and night market patrons. Come ready to eat, dance and shop!
