Junk FM - Various genres remixed in a fresh way
Tickets available starting on Sunday, August 9
Based out of Minneapolis, Junk FM is a cover band like no other...
Through genre-bending mashups and juxtaposing styles, Junk FM delivers an infectious, high energy show. From Garth Brooks to Lady Gaga in one slamming step, and others like Bruno Mars to Keith Urban are just a few artists to which they pay tribute.
Church of Cash
Tickets available starting on Sunday, August 16
Church of Cash, as the Midwest’s best Johnny Cash Tribute band, will be performing a multitude of hits starting with some of Johnny’s earliest work! Originally formed in Honolulu in 2009, bandleader and Minnesota native, Jayder Kalk brought together a range of talented musicians to create the best tribute band and traveled throughout the islands before returning to Minnesota.
They bring an energetic and vibrant vitality to the stage and will have you on your feet by the end of their show. Their songs will bring you back to the 1950s and bring Johnny Cash alive for the younger generation. Elk River Parks and Recreation is excited to welcome them back!

Community Concerts in the Commons will replace the popular Riverfront Concert Series for 2020 due to COVID-19 safety issues as decided by Elk River City Council on July 6, 2020. The concert series is for Elk River residents only due to the limited number of people allowed at an outdoor event and the space limitations of Rivers Edge Commons Park which holds less than the 250 maximum when following the social distancing rules.
Participants are responsible for following all MN Health Department and CDC guidelines in regards to COVID-19 prevention measures, such as hand washing and social distancing. The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public places especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain. The city reserves the right to make changes to the seating structure if guidelines are not observed or as may be required by the Governor’s Executive Orders.
