Rock Out at the Rockin’ on the Rivers Music Festival

Rocking out and having a good time are two things that go hand-in-hand in New Bern. This year’s Rockin’ on the Rivers music festival takes place on July 20th, rain or shine. Trent Cadillac is proud to be a sponsor of the Rockin’ on the Rivers music festival.

The Rockin’ on the Rivers music festival is the second concert in the 2018 Summer Concert Series. The New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce has partnered with WRNS 95.1 to make this event particularly special. As a result, Parmalee with Bryan Mayer and 3 Day Weekend will be performing live on the waterfront.

Tickets are $15 if purchased in advance and $20 at the gate. Children under 12 years old are admitted for free when accompanied by a paying adult. Ticket sales began on April 9th and can be purchased online at the New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce website. Alternatively, tickets can be purchased in person at Mitchell Hardware and the New Bern Area Chamber of Commerce office.

For those coming from out of town to attend the concert, you’re in luck. The DoubleTree has discounted rates for those planning on attending. You can take advantage of the discount by visiting their website.

We hope to see you at this year’s Rockin’ on the Rivers festival.

Celebrate Music with the Craven Concert Series

The Craven Concert Series has been providing New Bern and the surrounding area with the opportunity to experience live music for 34 consecutive years – and this year is no different.

For the 2018 season, the series has a number of concerts lined up. On Tuesday, March 20, you can enjoy the musical comedy of 3 Redneck Tenors. This trio are all classically trained, but like to bring some down-home laughs to their performance. Many say it’s like Duck Dynasty goes to the opera – and who wouldn’t want to see that? Even better, 3 Redneck Tenors were Finalists on America’s Got Talent, so you know they will definitely entertain.

If jazz and R&B are more your style, then you should see the Side Street Strutters performance, which is happening on Wednesday, April 11. Hear some of your favorites like Gershwin, Ellington, and, of course, Sinatra. The Strutters were awarded the Outstanding Musicianship Award by the International Association of Jaz Educators and awarded First Place at the Breda International Jazz Competition.

All performances within the Craven Concert Series are held in the Grover C. Fields Performing Arts Center and begin at 7:30pm on the date they are scheduled.

Enjoy some music this year and get your tickets for these performances now. Just order them online or at the box office before the performance. If you need a ride to get there, stop by Trent Cadillac.
