Whitaker Music Festival Concert – The Cree Rider Family Band
It’s officially summer in St. Louis when each Wednesday night hundreds pack a picnic and head out to the Missouri Botanical Garden for a free concert. If carrying picnic baskets and coolers isn’t your thing, there are plenty of food, beer, wine and soda options for purchase on-site.
Music act: The Cree Rider Family Band
The Cree Rider Family Band is rooted in a country music sound, with elements of folk, americana and rock n’ roll. One part Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris, one part Neil Young and Crazy Horse, the Family Band stays true to its own instincts to create a modern honky-tonk country sound that is rooted in tradition but firmly planted in the here and now. Vocals and harmony are a focus, but the full band expertly compliments each song. Known for their energetic and engaging live shows, the Cree Rider Family Band has been called a “subversive country band that wears its heart on its sleeve. You’ll dance, cry, laugh, and sing along.” Cree Rider Family Band has had songs placed episodes of Justified, True Blood, Bloodline, John Leguizamo’s Comedy Special Ghetto Klown, as well as other television shows and independent films.
