Dan Hicks regrets that he must cancel his appearance at Rockin' the River due to health issues. We wish him the very best and hope to see him again another time. We also thank Steve Lucky and the Rhumba Bums, who have agreed to play for us in Dan's stead...truly a stroke of "Luck" for us!

About Rockin' the River
Rockin' the River--Community Concerts at the Guerneville Plaza is a high octane concert series at the historic Guerneville Plaza in the heart of the Russian River Resort area.
A family-friendly, dancin'-in-the-street party, Rockin' the River kicks off at 6:30pm on Thursday, June 18th with legendary Bay Area blues & soul singer, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood, and runs every other Thursday through September 10th when Zepparella, with their powerhouse all female Led Zeppelin tribute, closes out the season.
The wonderful Russian River Farmers' Market shares the plaza on concert days and runs every Thursday, May through September from 3pm to 7pm. The Rockin' the River Series delights locals and visitors alike as concert goers celebrate great music, a beautiful corner of the world and each other.
The brick plaza at Guerneville's town center makes for a quaint and picturesque concert venue. The plaza lies at the base of Guerneville's circa 1922 metal truss walking bridge and is adjacent to Guerneville River Park and a short stroll to Main Street shops and Johnson's Beach. Exuding small town charm, Guerneville is well known for its natural beauty, laid-back attitude, friendly population, good restaurants and proximity to wine-tasting, redwood forests and the spectacular Sonoma Coast.
Special thanks to the Russian River Recreation and Park District for taking a lead role in making "Rockin' the River" possible. And many, many thanks to all of our sponsors and friends of the series. It truly takes a village.
