our monthly showcase at Bluetick Tavern! Free to the public, kid friendly. This time we will be honoring Roy & Alma Garrett, former owners of Roy's Record Shop that used to be in the Bluetick building for all they did for local music. The band for the evening is fantastic local bluegrass band Misty River! Misty River’s current repertoire consists of traditional and crossover tunes, material by regional songwriters and a few of Misty River’s own original compositions.
The band’s focus is strong vocals accompanied by hard driving instrumental arrangements. Although Misty River’s roots stay true to the Bluegrass sound, their repertoire includes tunes that lien toward diverse genres such as Americana and Country Music. Each band member of Misty River may prefer their own style of presentation, but those individual preferences complement each other when the band steps on the stage to play for their audience,
In the past 25 years, Misty River has specialized in performing for private industry functions or conventions, weddings and private parties. It allows the band the opportunity to work closely with the client in customizing the occasion to meet their expectations for a successful event. Some past and present clients include: Blackberry Farm, Friends of the Smokies, John Deere, Exxon, Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, BB&T Bank, Tennessee Land Conservancy and the University of Tennessee.
