    Cancelled due to inclement weather.

    The Riders love playing for an audience that is active, dancin’ and drinkin’. We love exploring classic country music, Americana music (John Fogarty, etc) and some classic rock. Our passion is learning and playing well songs everyone knows but rarely hear other bands play. Songs like King of the Road by Roger Miller, Glen Campbell’s Gentle on My Mind. Of course no Riders set would be complete without some Elvis. The band can likely be best described as playing everything from Buck Owens to the Beatles and back….. come on out and hear the band, you’ll be smiling!

    Mid-October, a pop-folk duo, based out of Urbana, IL, is the partnership between Jonathon Parrish and Therese Brown. The two met while putting together a band in Jonathon’s garage. For him it was love at first sight. For Therese, not so much. Through persistence and determination, from the beginning of that summer to the middle of October, Jonathon finally had changed her mind. She had fallen for him. After that, they paired their musical talents together and with beautiful, well-blended harmonies and fantastically written original love songs, are playing venues all over Illinois. They hope to remind their audiences that true passion and love can come from the heart and be put into music.
