“Rock’n on the River is a project that I have been wanting to do for a few years,” Adair said. “It will be free music … and it will be a little smaller than Fayetteville After Five, but just as much fun.”
Adair envisions Rock’n on the River to be a family friendly venue where people can bring their own chairs and blankets and enjoy high-quality music under the stars. He has bands lined up and is excited about growing this event.
“I want to do this every third Friday, March through October,” he said. “The first one features the Guy Unger Band at 6 p.m. and Rivermist at 8:30 p.m.”
The area where the concerts will be held accommodates 400-500 people, but Adair is planning for a day when the Sol Rose Amphitheater is back in operation and the crowds swell to more than 1,000. “I have played several shows there as a band, and Campbellton Landing is a fantastic place,” he said. “It is a feel-good property. I have visions that include letting boats come to the dock and anchor there. I would love for them to be able to drive up and get food and drink orders, too. The shade there makes it different.”
The concert starts at 6 p.m. and runs until 10:30 p.m. No outside coolers or containers are allowed. The event is free. Parking is $5 per vehicle. Campbellton Landing is located at 1122 Person St. Search Rock’n on the River on Facebook to learn more.
