The 2018 Tribute Band Concert Series at The Cottonwood Cove

The best live music in the Midwest comes from the riverfront stage at our RV Resort & Marina on the Missouri River . Most musical acts perform songs from a variety of popular bands, and sometimes even a few songs of their very own. This summer, throughout July and August, The Cottonwood Cove has an incredible lineup of tribute bands to entertain you every Saturday.

They are one of the few Bon Jovi tribute bands that have had the opportunity
