    High temperatures dominate Clarksville’s 2014 Riverfest Festival opening day

     

    2014 RiverfestClarksville, TN – The opening day of Riverfest was summed up in one word, hot! I was sweating from the moment I arrived at 5:00pm, until I left at 11:00pm. A chance of rain had been forecast but thankfully did not appear, or it would’ve made it even more humid.

    Crowds begin trickling in shortly before the 5:00pm opening, and things picked up steadily through the evening. Turnout was lower than expected but that was likely due to people avoiding the heat, and the forecast showers.

    Clarksville, TN2014 RiverfestOn Friday, September 5th, the Jon Royce band will be headlining Clarksville’s Riverfest Festival this weekend on the Miller Lite Stage starting at 10:00pm. I was fortunate to get a moment to sit down with Jon Royce and Mark Alan from the band to talk about the band, and their up coming show.

    With a clear crisp sound that blends a fusion of country, rock, and pop the band’s music has something for everyone. Strong vocals driven by a powerful beat with honest straightforward lyrics the Jon Royce Band can’t help but to stir the crowd in to a frenzy.
