Dancin’ in the District has given Nashvillians something to do on summer Thursday nights for years. Held on the banks of the Cumberland River, bands such as Better Than Ezra, Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and Cake, just to name a few, have graced the stage.

This year organizers, perhaps fed up with excessive street traffic on the West side of the river, and wanting to get more high-profile bands to play, have changed things around a bit – admission is no longer free but still a bargain at $3 and the show has jumped the river to the East side, near the the Coliseum, where the NFL’s Tennessee Titans play.

This year’s lineup kicked off with Collective Soul headlining, and a recent performance by Grammy winners Shaggy and Arrested Development (whose “Tennessee” was a crowd favorite) showed off an impressive reggae/hip-hop blend. After his 2000 album “Hot Shot” sold ten million copies powered by the singles “It Wasn’t Me” and “Angel,” the Jamaican-born Shaggy took on the reggae genre with “Lucky Day,” released in 2002. The mix of old hits and new musical frontiers delighted the audience. / Issue 32 - September 1725
