Derek Crider performs 6-10pm

August 27, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Join Us For The Return of Live Music at Sweetwater!

Derek Crider combines elements of country, rock, and soul, forging a sound all of his own. Hailing from the backwoods of Southern New Jersey, Derek started playing the guitar and writing songs at age 13 and was influenced by everything ranging from Motown to Country. After graduating high school, Derek spent a lot of time writing songs and playing locally in popular clubs and bars around Rowan, his college’s campus. “I would play a gig and be out till 4am in the morning and then I would have to go to class at 8am, I almost flunked out of college.” After graduating, Derek pursued his love for playing and songwriting and released his debut album “Lost & Found” in March 2015. Check him out online and then come check them out in person at Sweetwater Riverdeck!

Come early to enjoy Thirsty Thursday! $8 Drink Buckets, $10 Red Bull Drink Buckets and $2 Domestic Drafts between 4-7pm.
