The Bears Celebrate Independence Day in River Bend

The Bears in River Bend

The Bears, New Bern’s favorite oldies band, will celebrate Independence Day with a free performance in River Bend!

The Bears will perform on the Fourth of July in the gazebo River Bend Town Hall (45 Shoreline Drive), from 11:30am to 2:00pm. Bring a lawn chair, dress in red, white, and blue, and plan to have a grand old time!

The Bears play songs from the Golden Age of Rock & Roll, with harmonies, laughs, trivia, and high jinks galore. A show by The Bears is a nostalgic adventure, with the band’s Way-Back Machine set to fun!

Who are The Bears?

– “Yogi Bear”: River Bend’s own Pat Engeman sings and plays the drums.

– “Baby Bear”. River Bend’s own Steve Latimer sings and plays guitar.
