      Hi Jackie,

      It’s been a multicultural crowd every time I have gone. The bands are listed here, but you might have to do a little Googling to find out info about the individual performers.

    we come to the rooftop party almost every Thursday! love it! just noticed that you list this week’s party as July 14(which is a Friday?) I did look at band(Waker) that was playing and their schedule says thurday July 13 at Peabody. so I guess it’s Thursday as usual? just trying to make sure because we bring a big group and drive about an hour to get there. could you let me know?

    • Holly Whitfield says:

      Hi Bobby! I’m glad you love the Rooftop Party (I do too!) It is just Thursday as usual for the July 13th party – thanks for catching my typo 😉
