2014 Kiki & Drifters“Kiki and the Drifters” light up the Overlook Stage tonight.  How do they describe their music? “We are here to have fun and hopefully entertain you all with our unique blend of rock n’ roll, country, bluegrass, and folk, done OUR way!” They plan on having a fun time and making sure you do too!  You’re gonna love them! One of the many amenities of the Smothers Park renovation is the giant overlook stage  at the foot of Frederica.  It’s about 2/3 the size of the RiverPark Center patio and overlooks both the Ohio River, the new waterfall feature and the Signature Fountain, designed by the same people who created the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas.  Don Moore Automotive team is our sponsor all season where we feature Owensboro’s newest talent!
