Entertainment Announced – The Skirts
The Chase County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that The Skirts will perform at the 2017 River Suite dinner on the bridge. River Suite is an unforgettable Flint Hills experience held annually on the eve of Symphony in the Flint Hills.
This year’s enchanting event will take place on Friday, June 9, on the historic Cottonwood River Bridge overlooking the waterfall in downtown Cottonwood Falls.
Surrounded by the unforgettable jewel tones of a Kansas summer sunset, guests will be drawn to the white peaked tents and the aroma of a well-mastered selection of Flint Hills inspired delicacies inviting the senses to partake in the breathtaking experience of fine dining on the charming bridge.
Guests will be treated to a mouthwatering dinner thoughtfully composed of a 12-ounce Ribeye Steak, Spinach Salad, Amaretto Carrots, Twice Baked Potato and Homemade Rolls, finished with a selection of Fruit Cobblers and Homemade Ice Cream.
Along with the amazing meal the event offers a Cash Bar of Beer and Wine. Buckets of Beer and Bottles of Wine will be available for purchase.
Following the dinner, The Skirts will entertain patrons with their unique acoustic folk music.
The Skirts, composed of six band members, hail from Chase County Kansas. The Skirts were born when former Elexa & The Hitchhikers members Elexa Dawson and Melissa Tastove joined with their friend Sarah Bays, who had recently taken up the upright bass in the summer of ’09. Emily Wilson was quick to join them on mandolin. Rachel Allai was added the night before she recorded “Many Moons”, The Skirts’ first full-length studio album with her fiddle. These women continue to grow and evolve as a group, keeping originals as the core of their repertoire, but throwing in their home-made renditions of popular rock and folk songs.
This magical event will begin with a social hour at 6 p.m., followed by dinner at 7 p.m. The concert by The Skirts will begin at 8 p.m.
