River Series at the Harbor Town Amphitheatre Announces 2018 Spring Concert Schedule
The Sunday concert series returns with three shows in Spring 2018. Memphis and music lovers have the perfect opportunity to hear local and national artists sitting along a beautiful location on the Mississippi River.
This marks the fourth year of the River Series at the Harbor Town Amphitheater, a series of live music shows that benefit the Maria Montessori School. The on-campus amphitheater, an underutilized and truly beautiful event setting on the Mississippi River in Harbor Town, showcases and celebrates the school, the river, the Harbor Town community and the musical talent of Memphis and beyond. We ask for a $5 donation per person at the door. For more information visit riverseries.org.

2018 Spring Schedule
Coco Hames with Little Bandit
April 1, 2018
Nashville's Little Bandit, led by Alex Caress, and Memphis’ Coco Hames will join forces in Memphis at the River Series, where Little Bandit will also serve as Hames’ backing band.
Wreckless Eric with Alex Greene
April 15, 2018
WRECKLESS ERIC: With over 40 years of recording and touring behind him he shuns the dictates of nostalgia and doesn't do comebacks for the simple reason that he never went away. His 2015 album 'amERICa' was an urgent reminder of what he's about, and new album Construction Time & Demolition is a musically complex trawl through the psyche of a man with plenty to say and nothing to lose. It's always been that way: loud, dissonant, lyrical and gently melodic - cogent music for desperate times.
ALEX GREENE: Alex Greene has played music around Memphis since the 1980's, including stints with Alex Chilton, Tav Falco, Big Ass Truck, & the Reigning Sound. He currently performs with the Rolling Head Sextet, the Subtractions, and Lorette Velvette.
Los Cantadores with Mark Edgar Stuart
April 29, 2018
LOS CANTADORES: Memphis' best mariachi band, Los Cantadores has been an institution for years with their brand of authentic Latin and Cuban folk music.
MARK EDGAR STUART: A former session bassist who has become one of Memphis's best singer/songwriters, Stuart has a John Prine-like ability to deliver songs that feel poignant, witty and authentic.
