Rooftop Riot at Central City Park Stage

The Cherry Blossom Festival is one of the happiest times of year here in Middle Georgia. We really seem to come together as a community and celebrate who we are. So, being the opening band for the nightly concert series in Central City Park must be quite an honor for Warner Robins-based band Rooftop Riot. A little more than a year old, one of this band’s first shows was at last year’s Cherry Blossom Festival. They went on to become one of three semi-finalists in the Gorilla Music Battle of the Bands in Atlanta. Now, they bring their rock-out good times to the 2013 Cherry Blossom Festival. 6:30 p.m. Free admission. $10 parking.

Kraig Parker -- Elvis Tribute Artist at Central City Park Stage

“The King Lives!” Who doesn’t need a little more Elvis in their lives? The Cherry Blossom Festival assured me that they contacted Elvis’s manager about playing the festival this year, but he wasn’t able to make it. So, they hired the next best thing: Kraig Parker is an award-winning Elvis tribute artist. From the voice to the clothes and the moves, you’ll swear you’re seeing the King on stage. So, put on your “Blue Suede Shoes” and bring all your friends down to Central City Park for a swinging good time! 8 p.m. Free admission. $10 parking.

Greenhouse Lounge at Roasted Cafe and Lounge

This is an exciting show. Greenhouse Lounge is a three-piece band that lays its foundation with the electronic production of a DJ and then adds rock guitar leads and live drums. This experimental electronic music produces grooves for the dancer as well as impresses the conductor and arranger in us all. 18 and up. 9 p.m. Free.

The sunDollars at the Rookery

Wanting to get out and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with some fun live music? The sunDollars deliver a good time, every time.
