Reedville Fisherman’s Museum Gets ‘Rivahdacious’

On Sunday, June 23, 6 – 8 p.m. the Reedville Fishermen’s Museum’s Summer Concert Series will begin, bringing exciting new sounds to their waterfront pavilion in June, July and August.  Jumbo Lump Daddy and the Backfin Boys will delight audiences with their infectious style.
Their concerts feature a genre-defying style of “rivahdacious” music that blends rock ‘n roll, blues, country, rhythm ‘n blues, and originals. A show by Jumbo Lump Daddy and the Backfin Boys is like taking a road trip down the music highway.  Bring friends and enjoy a summer evening in Reedville.
If poor weather requires it, the concert will be moved to inside Festival Hall. Guests may bring picnic suppers and chairs; beverages and snacks will be available for sale. Ample free parking. Tickets, $5.  For info or to ask about reserving a table, call 804-453-6529 or visit www.rfmuseum.org. The Museum is at 504 Main Street in Reedville.
