RiverSharks members — Mike Shannon, lead vocals and guitar; Roger Deal, lead guitar; Kenny Deal, vocals and keyboards; Greg Campbell, vocals and bass guitar; and Dale Barnard, drums — recently returned from their second weeklong engagement at the world-famous Hog’s Breath Saloon in Key West, Fla.
The RiverSharks is a country-rock band based in Roane County.
Shannon, the band’s founder, said the best part of the engagement was “all our fans from Tennessee who traveled to Key West to hear us play."
