Rivergate Festival returns with mix of music, favorites
From Southern soul to country sounds, music is the focus of 2011’s Rivergate Festival in downtown Tunica on April 15-16.
Ocean Street kicks off the festival Friday night with a unique blend of rock and soul in a live show that has livened up beach towns and colleges coast to coast. Their single “Till I’m Gone” has been featured on a sampler CD alongside Paul McCartney and Marc Cohen and new artists Josh Ritter and KT Tunstall. The band was hand selected by Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell to play a fundraiser last fall at his Georgia ranch.
