NOARDA_RhythmontheRiverfront_FBeventphoto_GregHydeJoin us for the July edition of Rhythm on the Riverfront. This month we’re featuring Gregory Hyde. Gregory is a Chicago-based Singer/Songwriter who crafts inventive, intelligent, bombastic songs – often with a menacing edge. His tunes are riddled with nuances of slick pop hits, blues, classic rock, and even a Southern sensibility that creeps in from his formative years living on the outskirts of Tulsa, Oklahoma.

NOARDA’s fun, free, family-friendly concerts are held on the 2nd Thursdays in June, July and August in North Aurora’s Riverfront Park from 6:30-8:30. Our events are BYOB. There’s plenty of space in this great park, so invite your friends and neighbors, bring your lawn chairs or blankets, and stake out your perfect listening spot.

Raimondo’s Pizza & Pub will be selling slices of pizza and drinks.

Parking is available at Village Hall and across the street at Island Park.

Concerts are sponsored by Riverfront Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
