Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront and its on-site restaurant Burger Theory are partnering to bring a new 16-week live music series to the hotel’s north lawn.
Music lovers are invited to enjoy Riverfront Live!, free to the public, on Friday nights from 7 – 10 p.m., beginning May 17 and running through August 30. Regional and local talent will be featured over the 16-week period.
“We have one of the best riverfront views from our patio and lawn, so it was time to add a signature live music event on these Friday nights,” said Claude Bacon of LinGate Hospitality.
Burger Theory already features everyday happy hour from 4 – 6 p.m. with $3 drafts and half-price appetizers, but Food and Beverage Manager Louis Hayes said they will offer burger, beer and bourbon specials on Riverfront Live! evenings.
Holiday Inn Owensboro Riverfront Director of Sales Ashley Aull said her the hotel has added a stage, lights, lawn seating, outdoor bar, photo booth, outdoor games, and more to the Riverfront Live! Event.
“It’s a great value added experience for our hotel guests and offering a free live music event for the region was also important to the hotel,” Aull said.
The Riverfront Live! announcement comes after the City of Owensboro decided to discontinue their Bluegrass on the Banks concert series with the opening of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and Museum. The City will still offer Live on the Banks, a free Saturday night summer music series at the Overlook Stage in Smothers Park.
