Covered Bridge Jams

ELIZABETHTON — The weekly free concerts at the Covered Bridge Park on the banks of the Doe River in downtown Elizabethton will continue on Saturday, July 24, when the band Retroville takes the stage at 7 p.m.

“We are expecting a large crowd to come out and enjoy this energetic group,” David Nanney, Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Department recreation manager, said.

Retroville formed in 2004 and has been going strong ever since. One of the unique things about the band is that it covers so many different musical styles. At most performances, they will cover material from the 1950s to the 1990s. The band’s main focus is the 1970s and 1980s.

Nanney said the band has 143 years of total combined experience. Band menbers are Wayne Kelley, lead vocals and guitar; Alan Links, keyboards and vocals; Mike Thacker, lead guitar and vocals; and Jerry Hanger, drums and vocals.

“We encourage everyone to be at the Covered Bridge Park on Saturday at 7 p.m. Bring your lawn chair, bring a friend or the whole family and enjoy a phenomenal night of music,” Nanney said.
