Rockin’ at the River
Please join us for the first concert of the 2024 season on Thursday, June 13th, for the City of Pontiac’s Rockin’ at the River concert series! This concert will take place at the Humiston – Riverside Bandshell from 7PM – 9PM. We will be featuring the Chicago-based cover band, Brass from the Past – a band featuring a 6-piece horn section, 4-piece rhythm section, and 3 singers who will perform all kinds of music across the 60s, 70s, and 80s!

Our platinum sponsors for this season includes Boldt Home Improvement, Heartland Community College of Pontiac, and Country Financial-Marlon Eilts.

More about Brass from the Past:
Brass from the Past is one of Chicago’s best cover bands. Featuring Chicagoland’s top-tier touring and studio musicians, the band offers an unstoppable 6-piece horn section, tight 4-piece rhythm section, and 3 powerful singers who command the stage. This is no ordinary band!
Brass from the Past performs the music of your soul and brings you back to the 60s, 70s, and 80s — a playlist no other band can touch. The classics of Motown, R&B, funk, soul, and rock are our specialties. We cover the music of Stevie Wonder, Four Tops, Temptations, Michael Jackson, Chicago, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, BS&T, Pattie Labelle, Bruno Mars, Chaka Kahn, O’Jays, Tower of Power, Prince, Tina Turner, Bee Gees, and many, many more.

The diverse selection of music will match the elegance of any occasion, energize the crowd, project a concert-like stage performance, and fill the night with contagious fun.

Rockin’ at the River Concerts are family-friendly, free, and open to the public. Food vendors will have items for sale, or you can bring your own picnic! Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets to sit on; a small number of chairs will be available if you did not bring your own.

In the case of inclement weather, the concert will be moved to The Eagle Performing Arts and Conference Center.
