International Tours
Rocky River's 1997 International Tour included performances in San Diego & San Francisco (USA), Alnwick, Southleigh & Hull (UK), France, Germany, Denmark and Holland. We toured Europe again in 1999, this time playing in Poland as well. The Band made quite an impression in its travels, as well as lots of friends in other parts of the World.
In 2001 Rocky River toured Europe for the 4th time and returned again in 2004, playing at maritime festivals in The UK, Germany, Brittany, Denmark & The Netherlands.
