EVENT Next Rock'n On The River concert set for June 18 by AUDREY HOGUE With the beginning of summer and people looking for outdoor entertainment, the Rock'n On e River summer concert series is the perfect opportunity to hang out with friends, enjoy food and drinks, and dance the evening away. On June 18, all are invited for live, free entertainment from local Fayetteville band Reflections II and North Carolina band Trial by Fire. Reflections II is a widely known local Fayetteville band of three pro- fessional musicians. Bringing a vari- ety of music to the table from pop to Motown and the oldies. Known for their entertaining performances, the band will kick off the evening at 6:00 p.m. and it is sure to be a show you won't want to miss.
