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.

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.
