POMEROY — The annual Rhythm on the River music series will begin at 8 p.m. on Friday at the Pomeroy Riverfront Amphitheatre.
The Pomeroy Blues & Jazz Society will host six musical performers during the Rhythm on the River Summer music series on the Pomeroy Riverfront Amphitheatre.
The Athens Jazztet will preform this Friday. The Jazztet evokes the classic two-horn quintet sound of Miles Davis and Horace Silver, while encompassing elements of music from across the spectrum of jazz repertoire. From blues to hard bop, from Latin to New Orleans funk, a Jazztet performance has something for everyone — whether or not they consider themselves jazz fans. The Jazztet features valve trombonist Ernie Bastin, saxophonist Matt James, guitarist John Horne, bassist Terry Douds and drummer Guy Remonko.
All Rhythm on the River shows are at the Riverside Amphitheater in downtown Pomeroy, start promptly at 8 p.m. and are free to the public. Coolers and picnicking are permitted during the Rhythm on the River events.
The series will begin on June 29, with additional concerts on July 6, 13, 20, and Aug. 3 and 10.
Johnny Rawls will perform on July 6; The Gas House Gorillas are scheduled on July 13; Clarence Spady will sign on July 20; the August 3 performer will be Gizzae; and the series will close on August 10 with Grady Champion.
