The 2020 Riverboat Days and Summer Arts Festival has been canceled this year.
The Annual Summer Concert Series will be held at the Riverside Park Amphitheatre. The all-volunteer Yankton Area Summer Band boasts an average annual membership of 70-100 musicians ranging from students to professionals from Yankton and the surrounding communities.
Rehearsal begins at 6:30 p.m. for all-volunteer musicians (high school or older) interested.
With the health and well being of our organizers, staff, volunteers, vendors, attendees, and musicians in mind, Musica t the Meridian has made the decision to cancel the 2020 concert series.
Work has begun, to book bands for the 2021 season, and we are excited to see what next year will bring.
The Yankton Area Summer Band will reconvene for an annual Christmas Concert held at Yankton Summit Theater.
The all-volunteer band will perform some Christmas favorites at no cost to the public. A cookie and cider reception will follow in the high school commons provided by the Services Central Federal Credit Union.

Reverend Peytons Big Damn Band
With all the power of a freight train, the Big Damn Band is known for its live shows. Rev. Peyton delivers guitar pyrotechnics the old fashioned way — ten fingers, a 6 string and an amp cranked at full tilt. In the country blues style, he plays the bass with his thumb, while picking the lead with his fingers at the same time. When he lifts the guitar behind his head to play there’s nothing but skill and 16 gauge nickel strings to make the sounds coming out of the speakers.
Beside him on stage are just two other people. His wife, “Washboard” Breezy Peyton playing with all the nuance and percussive power of a New Orleans drum line, and keeping the train moving is Max Senteney on a lean drum kit including a 5 gallon maple syrup bucket. Together they play Peyton’s wildman country blues that’s as much ZZ Top as it is Bukka White.

J. Jeffrey Messerole & The Stone Horses will be opening the evening.
J. Jeffrey Messerole is a multi award-winning singer-songwriter from western Iowa. Messerole masterfully blends the sound of his guitar, with captivation lyrics, and harmonica to tell gritty american tales, bound to evoke emotion from all of his listeners. Each song is a poignant, and sometimes, painful, snapshot of the lives of old souls and modern folk alike. “Though he doesn’t sound like Dylan, Messerole definitely has a touch of the master.” – National Traditional Country Music Association
