Kick Off 4th Of July Weekend With Some Fun!

Kick Off 4th Of July Weekend With Some Fun!

1) Fridays on the Plaza: Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts with Extra Gold - Depot Square

July 1, 2022 / 5:30pm to 9:00pm / FREE

Ryan Chrys & The Rough Cuts bring forth new energy to music fans who love the heroes and outlaws of old. Influenced by the songs and personalities of legends like Waylon and Willie, they drive their sound with blazing guitars and a rock n’ roll attitude. The band pays respect to classic styles, but anyone can tell from their overdriven sound that they’re far from traditionalists. Recommended for lovers of both classic country and 70’s rock n roll.
