Troy Events Alert --Aquanett Kicks Off Rockin on the River:

  80's Hair Tribute band, Aquanett kicks off the 2013 Rockin on the River schedule tomorrow night,June 19, beginning at 5 p.m., down under --the Green Island Bride that is! Rockin on the River is another great way to Enjoy Troy each and every Wednesday evening. Free music, great atmosphere, and a well managed, trouble free event, equals a great time. Sit on the decks at Ryans Wake, or Brown's Brewing Company for a cold drink or some fine food, overlooking the Historic Hudson River. Or stop into Jose Malones for some Mexican fare, or one of their incredible frozen Margarita's. There's also a beer truck on site in case you just want to wade through the crowd, or just sit in a lawn-chair. 
    Aquanett is an incredible group of musicians, covering the classics of the 80's & 90's, with dead-on precision and accuracy. I've done numerous shows with them over the years, and they never fail to please. The weekly series is managed, and put together by the Troy Downtown Business Improvement District, with Executive Director Elizabeth Young, and her staff doing an outstanding job in developing the series into a must see, destination event. So join us tomorrow for the kick off to another great season of Rockin on the River. 
   One more thing --Troy has quite a few other bars and  fine restaurants. Take the time after the shows to explore everything Troy has to offer.
