WACO, TEXAS — Based on audience response, tips, boosts on social media and invitations to return to play again, the Rising Sons 2016 Gulf Coast Tour was a huge success. The 16-year-olds will share stories and photos from the tour and perform Wednesday, June 15th at 8:30 p.m. on the Waco Hippodrome patio.
The trio — George Eichenberg, Spencer Davis and Jackson Anderson — returned to Waco early June 13th after performing seven shows in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida during their nine-day Gulf Coast summer tour, which kicked off in New Orleans the night of June 4th.
“It’s great to be home, but I did not want the tour to be over,” said George Eichenberg, Rising Sons bass player. “I’m looking forward to Wednesday night at the Hippodrome so we can tell our Waco friends, fans and family some stories about the tour.”
Before hitting the road, The Waco Tribune-Herald and ActLocallyWaco.com published stories about the tour. Staff members from the Wacoan magazine interviewed the teens by phone several days into the tour.
The Waco Hippodrome’s Casey Turner had the idea for the teens to perform following the tour. The Rising Sons asked to expand the event to include stories from the road and a photo slideshow. The teens dubbed the event, “Tales from the Road: Rising Sons 2016 Gulf Coast Tour.”
The public is invited to the free event.
