When the weather starts to warm up, the live outdoor music in the Quad Cities follows closely behind. That’s right, it’s time to start up the River Music Experience Friday Live@Five!

Since 2010, the River Music Experience (RME) has hosted this free summer concert series in the RME Courtyard on 2nd Street in Davenport. All ages are welcome and the shows are every Friday night at 5 p.m.

This Friday Jun 8 is the RME’s 14th Anniversary Block Party. Celebrate RME’s past 14 years with live music from Desert Noises (from Nashville), King of the Tramps and The Winter Blues All-Starts. 2nd Street will be blocked off from Main to Brady for this awesome party!
