Community River Rock at the Amp The crowd at River Rock

River Rock at the Amp is a summer full of classic rock concerts in Warren, Ohio. The concert series is located in the beautiful city of Warren, OH near the historic Courthouse Park. We had the opportunity to sponsor the event on June 10, 2017. We invited our friends and family to the event to enjoy food from Vernon’s Café and Sunrise Inn while listening to the bands Southern Whiskey & 7 Bridges. The amphitheater has ground seating but allows lawn chairs and blankets to be brought for convenience. Many food and beverage options are located around the theater to be purchased. Free parking accommodates all attendees. We shot out many SERVPRO t-shirts to the crowd in between bands. We had a great time and are looking forward to sponsoring again next year!
