Don Moore Party Pier web  Don Moore Party at the Pier 

Tonight’s band, Old Salt Union puts the “Party” in “Party Pier.” Old Salt Union is known for playing music by their own set of rules. While the men who make up the group are not complete rebels, they are certainly focused on exposing people to a purer, more exciting, and more original form of music. Drawing influence from Bill Monroe, Sam Bush and Del McCoury, to jazz great Bill Evans and Composer Danny Elfman, it’s obvious the group has a unique and broad genetic make-up. What makes Old Salt Union special is their ability to further explore the jazz and blues roots of bluegrass in a mature and refreshing manner. With in-depth musical compositions, a catchy hook, and a high- energy metaphorical punch to the gut, they are truly front runners in the new generation of string music.Tonight’s band is staying over courtesy of our newest downtown hotel, Holiday Inn Riverfront, home of “Another Broken Egg”.Tonight’s party is free thanks to our season long sponsor Don Moore Automotive. Join us for the “Party on the Pier” tonight.   Great entertainment and just like Friday After 5, it’s free.   8:00pm-11:30pm
