2022 Summer Music Fest: Riverstreet – The Arts Council
August 20 @ 8:00 pm
Get on your feet and dance to the classic rock sounds of Riverstreet! Founded in 1969, in Gainesville, GA, this Rock band includes Mike Terrell (drums), Dwayne Young (bass guitar), Dean Young (rhythm guitar), David Murray (lead guitar), Larry Vandiver (lead guitar) and Michael Bennett (keyboards).
“We were only a cover band, but we became…popular,” said drummer Mike Terrell, who joined the band in 1974. “We stayed on the road a good bit touring. We played about 10 states and as far away as Arkansas.” The band cultivated and maintained quite a following, not only in its home state of Georgia but all over the Southeast by extensively working the college and club circuits.
Over the years, Riverstreet has shared the stage with many notable acts including Greg Allman, Rare Earth, Steppenwolf, Guess Who, Headeast, The Tams and Badfinger. The band also performed with comedian/actor Martin Mull in Cocoa Beach, Florida, one of Terrell’s personal favorites.
Riverstreet has been performing a few, very select shows since getting back together in 2012, attracting audiences of two to four thousand a show. “To see a response like this is truly humbling,” Terrell said. The band is excited to perform again this summer at The Arts Council Smithgall Arts Center.
