Concerts are informal, intimate and comfortable for guests. No one has to squeeze into an auditorium seat, no one has to stand and no one has to spend a fortune for a beverage! Riverdog is not a business...we sell no food or beverages and guests may bring in whatever they like. Suggested donations are used to support the artists.
Since no profits are taken or expected, all resources can be focused upon obtaining the highest quality of music. Riverdog is now being sought out by some of the country's finest Americana talent.
We periodically send out email newsletters announcing new concerts as well as last minute reminders. To receive e-newsletter updates, please make a request to be put on the list click the "Contact" tab at the top.
Our newsletters serve as an invitation to attend our shows and guests may bring friends or family along for the fun.
