Bridge St. LIVE! Eclipse Edition

Location: Bridge St. LIVE! Entertainment District
Event Date: April 4, 2024

Hot Springs is adding a FREE public concert by blues artist Nikki Hill with opening act Gravel Yard Blues Band and presentations from NASA to kick off the weekend leading up to the phenomenon!

Nikki Hill is sweet seduction, sweeter threat, and smoldering energy. Overlapping soulful, sensual and bold vocal tones with powerful chrome-plated riffs and swagger, her voice finds a home in it – a soul singing, bar rocking, roots revivalist, that writes with frank self-reflection at a dancing tempo.
