New Concert Series Coming to Covington's Roebling Point
A new summer concert series is coming to Covington's Roebling Point entertainment area.
River City Jam will bring national and local bands to a stage on Court Street for River City Jam. The series benefits Band of Helping Hands, a Covington-based nonprofit organization whose mission is “Providing Possibilities and Opportunities for Children and Young Adults through Education, Music, Art, Athletics and Personal Growth Experiences.”
Band of Helping Hands focuses much of its efforts in Covington, offering programs like “Change in Motion” for individuals who are working or going to school and need a vehicle.
Front man and founder of Band of Helping Hands, Greg Mebs, believes that music saved him from a life of addiction, and the band uses their live music shows to raise money for their organization.
Several students from the BoHH music program will perform at this year’s event. River City Jam and participating artists will donate a portion of proceeds to the organization.
The River City Jam Concert Series runs Saturdays from August 5 through August 29. Doors open at 7 p.m. with performances beginning at 8 p.m. All shows are free and open to all ages.
