A Decatur-based country rock band nominated for the Nashville Music Industry Awards’ Country Group of the Year will perform at Riverfest, a two-day barbecue competition and music festival scheduled for Sept. 13-14 at Point Mallard Park.

The Shannon Woods Band is the first confirmed performer for the 25th annual festival hosted by Mosaic Mentoring of North Alabama. With Shannon Woods on guitar and vocals, Brett Ellis on guitar, Graham Miles on bass guitar and keyboard and Canaan Cook on drums, the band recently released their first single, “A Song You Can Drink a Beer To.” The song landed in the 12th spot on the top independent country artists’ chart.

Expect more entertainment announcements soon for Riverfest, which typically features four performers each day. The event will benefit Mosaic Mentoring of North Alabama.
