This Saturday’s Covered Bridge Jams Concert will feature Retroville. “We are expecting a large crowd to come out and enjoy this energetic group,” stated Recreation Manager David Nanney.

Retroville: The band formed in 2004 and has been going strong ever since! One of the most unique things about the band is they can cover all musical styles. At most performances, they will cover material from the 1950s to the 1990s. Their main focus is the 1970s and 1980s. The band has 143 years total combined years of experience. Band members are Wayne Kelley, Lead Vocals, Guitar; Alan Linkous, Keyboards, Vocals; Mike Thacker, Lead Guitar, Vocals; and Jerry Hanger, Drums, Vocals.
