Georgia Satellites free concert Saturday

Rushville Riverside Park summer concert series

RUSHVILLE — Southern rockers The Georgia Satellites will take the Rushville Riverside Park Amphitheater stage Saturday, June 15. This legendary band is best known for their Billboard hit “Keep Your Hands To Yourself,” along with “Battleship Chains” and “Hippy Hippy Shake.” This free event starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Riverside Park Amphitheater in Rushville, located at 100 West Water Street.

From their bar band roots to their chart-crashing megahits to their current tour of sold-out shows, The Georgia Satellites have kept the world moving to sweet, gritty, three-chord rock and roll.

Founded in 1985 by Rick Richards, Rick Price, singer Dan Baird and drummer Mauro Magellan, the Satellites quickly launched into stardom.

Critically acclaimed albums and mind-bending performances earned the boys a permanent spot in music history.

After a brief sabbatical following Baird’s departure, The Georgia Satellites returned with a vengeance in 1993. Led by Price and Richards and joined by drummer Todd Johnston, they have packed houses around the world with their blistering brand of Southern rock.

The Georgia Satellites were one of the most ferocious bands of the ‘80s, What set them apart from the other 10,000 groups that cranked their amps to 11 was that their wild riffs and tanked cries came from a quartet that understood its place in rock tradition and fought hard to solidify it with each recording.

As their current live act shows, they’ve expanded forever the limits and the promise of what a band can do with three chords (well, sometimes only two), played harder than ever before.

Riverside Park Amphitheater is an outdoor music venue located at 100 West Water Street in Rushville. The venue is a great concert destination annually hosting live music events and creating a great family-friendly environment.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs or blankets.

Snacks and drinks are available for purchase. There is a beer garden on-site for adults over 21 years of age; however, no alcohol is to be brought into the park and all coolers are checked upon entry.

Parking is conveniently available in gravel lots or in surrounding business lots with easy shuttle service to and from the amphitheater. Special handicap parking is also available.
