If you are a music lover make plans to visit us in the summer. On Friday nights you can catch one of our local concerts in Gastonia or Belmont. Then on Saturday night you can head over to the U.S. National Whitewater Center for the Saturday night River Jam. Also keep an eye out for the "Blues Out Back" Concert at the Gaston County Museum of Art & History. Live bands can be found on a regular basis at Friends Sports Bar & Grill in Belmont.
