Jack and Silas Band & The River Arkansas – Nederland Summer Series

August 31 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm MDT

Free concert series in Nederland, CO!

The River Arkansas

A batch of Colorado’s finest musicians whose abilities shine throughout the golden hour that is Green Bridge. The four piece each skillfully showcases their craft while seamlessly bonding together as a band. Bolder Beat noted that, “Together, they give off a heartfelt and wholesome sound which resonates with the Colorado lifestyle of mountain life meets the pavement.”
Mike Clark (singer, songwriter) and Macon Terry (bass) formed The River Arkansas in 2014 after an impromptu studio session led to the release of their first album, Golden Light. The band picked up Robin Chestnut (drums) and Rachel Sliker (violin) for a month-long west coast tour that solidified the band’s friendship and led to their sophomore album, You Animal. The band has evolved from a more tender sound to heavier soulful country and blues rock with 3-piece harmonies and stripped guitar and violin solos. With the release of Green Bridge, The River Arkansas demonstrates just how much they’ve mastered the steady flow of their sound.
