Thursday June 5th — The Thursday Cruise Nights begin in Depot Town

Friday June 6th — The first of the Crossroads Summer Festival Concerts on Washington Street. This week features Martindales a typical post-Jeff Beck-Jimmy Page-Eric Clapton electric blues band with plenty of covers and long, extended blues jams, with the keys sometimes sounding like a B-3 organ, at other times like an electric piano. They seem like a perfect band to watch while sipping a beer on Washington Street.


Kentucky Chrome This is a great very busy band from Ohio which labels themselves Rockabilly they seem like they will be a great time.
