We set the summer night to music on the Party Pier with CALABASH! The super-charged fun band began as a collaboration between two aspiring singer/songwriters in the heart of America’s music city, Nashville. Having formed the group with a shared determination for performing original music, the duo of Paul Wiemeier and Jarod Heim returned calabash pierback to their home of Evansville, Indiana. As their music grew, so did the lineup. What was once a simple acoustic duo had become an onslaught of rhythm and melody. After years of gigging regionally and building up a fan base, CALABASH has risen to new heights and is ready to party!  Tonight’s band is staying over courtesy of our newest downtown hotel, Holiday Inn Riverfront, home of “Another Broken Egg”. Join the party tonight on the Don Moore Party Pier, our All-America City newest performance venues.  The “Party Pier” is right on the Ohio River behind our new Convention Center.  Just steps away, you’ll find Smothers Park where 2014 FA5 Aug 15 Brasher Bogue 309visitors fall in love with the new waterfall feature and the Signature Fountain, designed by the same people who created the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas.  Don Moore Automotiveteam sponsors the entire season where we throw a party every Friday of the summer.
