We are counting down the days till the inaugural Moon River Music Festival, which is happening this Saturday, June 7, at the historic Levitt Shell in Memphis, TN. Headlining the gig will be none other than the Nashville-based Americana rock tenacity of Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors. Curated and presented by the Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors themselves, the band have invited an amazing lineup, featuring sounds of the south like Will Hoge, Holly Williams, The Dirty Guv’nahs, Judah & the Lion, Dwan Hill, Rob Baird, and Stax Muisc Academy Alumni, along with many others. So, if you are looking for food trucks, beer, and sun, along with an excuse to escape the CMA madhouse that is Nashville this weekend, then make the trek to Moon River Music Festival. Grab your tickets starting at only $25 here. Gates open and festivities begin at 11:30 a.m. Also, don’t forget to snag yourself some of that famous lip-smacking Memphis barbecue while you’re in the area.
Below, enjoy the Americana roots rock of “Good Light,” the title track from Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors’ new album, and find out where you can get more information on the fest!
