    The GlidesDistrict Stage, 7-10pm

    Original Alternative Rock Band
    The Glides perform a brand of music that can best be described as alternative, retro, groove. The Phoenix, Arizona band consists of vocalist Travis Kenny, guitarist Mark Harrison, bass guitarist Paul Perron, and drummer Rikki “Stixx” Rodinis. Whether it’s playing shows, in five cities, in five nights; or zipping up to the high country of Flagstaff to play into the wee hours of the night, these four Renaissance men are always on the move.

    The Glides not only know where they are going, but have a rock solid history that put them here today. With two feet solidly in indie rock, the band seamlessly juggles elements of dancehall, blues, punk, grunge, and a taste of retro 50’s rock to create their alternative, retro, grooves.
