At a Riverside concert....

-can expect a band that shows up on time, can provide their own quality sound if necessary, and provides clear expectations up front.
Riverside started as an idea for a recording back in 2016.
Banjo player and vocalist Jesse Burdick wanted to work on this project with his bluegrass music heroes, and in the fall of 2017 began working on doing just that. One year later: Hops & Spirits was published and released on February 16th.
After a brief stint with Travers Chandler and Avery County and showcasing with them at the IBMA Wide Open Bluegrass festival in Raleigh, NC, Jesse decided to move forward with a more progressive sound and a fresh lineup.
Forming Riverside Bluegrass Music Services LLC as a cohesive business venture, the band is now utilizing every opportunity they can to grow in the genre. Expert leadership, quality sound, and endorsements from Deering Banjos and Ear Trumpet Labs have lended themselves to the production of a sharp outfit.
Riverside is the band you want.
