New City Road

NCR POSTER 2018 - High Res

It’s high energy, it’s great county vocals, it’s a band that knows how to bring the party… Named after a county road that could probably tell some great stories, New City Road is what is right about a county band. The band loves mixing up the set list and enjoying the music as only friends can.

Take a trip down “New City Road” at the Macoupin County Fair Smoky Jennings Pavilion on Friday, June 28 at 8:30 p.m.
