About This Event:
Join us for a musical sunset cruise.
Join us for a musical sunset cruise. Rue de la Pompe, from Lancaster, PA, is an all-acoustic string and reed band that blends vintage swing, contemporary American popular song, Latin rhythm, hot jazz, and French Musette. They are inspired by the elegant and romantic music of 1930s European string bands commonly referred to as Hot Club Swing. For this concert, core members David Francis (rhythm guitar), Bruce Campbell (acoustic bass) and Ken Gehret (lead guitar, accordion and violin) will be joined by guitarist Kevin Neidig.
Gehret, Campbell and Neidig were featured performers at the 2018 Susquehanna Folk Festival, and are on the festival lineup for 2019 as well!
The riverboat is docked at City Island in Harrisburg for happy hour and the concert which begins at 5:30 pm. Arrive early to get a seat!
Music continues on an hour-long sunset cruise from 7:30-8:30. Admission includes concert and cruise. A cash bar and à la carte grill is available.
