This holiday is the first full weekend that the Big Four Bridge is open bringing music fans from Louisville to Jeffersonville.

"I love the (Louisville) Crashers," fan Barbie Richey said. "They're wonderful and they play great music." The ever popular band the Louisville Crashers and special guest Eight Inch Elvis kicked-off the free summer concert series at RiverStage.

Mike McAfee of Eight Inch Elvis said, "The Big Four opening is huge for us and we're all excited because we're a Jeffersonville band so this is something that we've all been waiting for."

Some fans love the music and the high quality sound system so much, they got to the event hours before it started to plant their lounge chairs.

Music fan Mark White said it's never too loud despite having seats near the stage, "Not for us," he laughed, "we're old rockers!" 

White's wife Marlaine agreed RiverStage will be packed at every event, "It will be a hot spot this summer."
