DETROIT -- The 2009 Rockin’ on the Riverfront summer concert series, sponsored by Andiamo Detroit Riverfront and in partnership with Detroit’s Classic Rock Station 94.7 WCSX-FM, is ready to rock the ‘D’ by setting the Riverfront Plaza’s scenic stage with some of classic rock’s most unforgettable bands. The concert series kicks off July 24 and will make the spectacular Riverfront Plaza THE Friday night destination for food, fun and FREE concerts.

Rockin’ on the Riverfront will feature seven sizzling Friday night shows from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., July 24 through September 4.

Rick Derringer will headline the series on July 24. A seasoned musician and entertainer, Derringer has recorded four blues CDs, numerous jazz hits and has produced and written albums for the World Wrestling Entertainment. He is best known for his big hits, "Hang on Sloopy" (performed with his former band, The McCoys) and "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo."

Additional Rockin’ on the Riverfront performers include:

July 31 – Leon Russell
August 7 – The Rock Show & The Who Show (Journey tribute band and The Who tribute band)
August 14 – Classic Rock All Stars
August 21 – Foghat
August 28 – Edgar Winter
September 4 – TBA

Local bands and performers will open each of the seven shows.

“Summer in Detroit wouldn’t be the same without the Rockin’ on the Riverfront concert series,” said Andiamo President and CEO Joe Vicari. “The beautiful riverfront creates an ideal backdrop to enjoy these free classic rock concerts. We invite everyone out to join us on the riverfront for a memorable experience."

Admission to the concerts is free and no advance tickets are necessary. Viewing space will be on a first-come, first-serve basis and people are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs and blankets. In addition, boaters on the Detroit River are invited to anchor near the riverfront and enjoy the view of the stage from the water.

Andiamo Detroit Riverfront will provide refreshment and food concessions at several locations on the plaza. Outside food, beverages or coolers will not be permitted. Andiamo Detroit Riverfront will accept dinner reservations before and after the concert and invites guests to take advantage of its gorgeous outdoor patio overlooking the Detroit River.

Convenient parking is available for $5 per vehicle at the GM surface lot at the intersection of St. Antoine and Atwater, adjacent to the GM Renaissance Center. Valet parking is also available at the GM Ren Cen North Lobby on Jefferson Avenue.
