The first band to participate in the Sunset Jams will be Rivermist.

Elizabethtown-White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Terri Dennison said when asked about the event, “We’re really excited. There’s been a resurgence of live music events. It’s good that it’s outdoors because of COVID. We’re hoping people will enjoy the nice weather at White Lake.”
