MINDEN, Nev. — The Douglas County Parks & Recreation Department invites you to join us for the final
concert of the 2017 GE Family Concert Series this Friday Aug. 25 from 6-8 p.m.
Spend an evening of music with family and friends at Minden Park enjoying the music of Rad Moon Rising. This concert is being co-sponsored by Rejuvenate Salon & Spa.
Concerts are free of charge due to the generous contributions of local businesses and organizations.
“Rad Moon Rising has been performing the sight and sounds of Creedence Clearwater Revival for over 6 years. Our mission is to satisfy a thirst for the basic rock and roll needs that can’t be filled by today’s music. If we are in an intimate club of 100 or at a re-creation of the original Woodstock Festival from 1969 in front of a crowd of over 5,000 CCR fans, Rad Moon Rising delivers a show that brings you back to those days.”
Concessions will available for purchase at the concert sponsored by Kiwanis Club of Carson Valley, Tahoe Douglas Elks Lodge #2670 and the Carson Valley Lions Club.
