"A gathering of Angels appeared above my head They sang to me this song of hope and this is what they said, They said, "Come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me lads"

Absolutely a beautiful night in Bay City for the Dow River Roar's Concert attraction on Saturday, June 25, 2011.

Scott Baker and Finding Clyde opened the great evening's concert draw in Veteran's Memorial Park in Bay City for this year's headliner STYX.

It was a record number, as Styx fans filled Vet's Hill and VIP area was a Sold Out Crowd! Everyone sailed away back with the 70's band who now includes: James Young - Vocals, guitars, keyboards, Tommy Shaw - (Vocals, guitars, mandolin, autoharp, talkbox) Todd Sucherman - (Drums, percussion) Lawrence Gowan - (Vocals, keyboards, guitar) and Ricky Phillips - (Bass guitar, backing vocals)

River Roar Concert Promoter Chad Cunningham, pleased the River Roar Concert crowd once again this year.

Styx is an American rock band that became famous for its albums from the late 1970s and early 1980s. The Chicago band is known for melding the style of prog-rock with the power of hard rock guitar, strong ballads, and elements of American musical theater.

The band is best known for the hit songs "Lady", "Come Sail Away", "Renegade", "Babe", "The Best of Times", "Too Much Time On My Hands", "Show Me the Way", "Don't Let It End"

The band has four consecutive albums certified multi-platinum by the RIAA.
