Rhode Island Sound, Navy Band Northeast’s contemporary musical group known for performing everything from classic rock to rhythm and blues, will present a free concert at Bristol Tennessee’s Downtown Center on Thursday, April 6, as part of Tri-Cities Navy Week.

The band, based onboard Rhode Island’s Naval Station (NAVSTA) Newport, will perform from 6 to 8 p.m. under Bristol’s iconic country music mural. Those attending are invited to bring a chair. 

Tri-Cities Navy Week will bring about 75 members of the U.S. Navy to the region from April 3-9. In addition to the Bristol concert by Rhode Island Sound, planned events include volunteer projects with Habitat for Humanity, The Bridge Home No Kill Animal Rescue, and Second Harvest Food Bank; a display at Bristol Public Library; band performances at Volunteer High School and Sullivan East High School; and more. The week will culminate with activities at Pinty’s Truck Race on Dirt on April 8 and the NASCAR Food City 500 on April 9 at Bristol Motor Speedway.
