RHS graduates are at the core of the band Main Street formerly known as Mane St.

If you have lived in the Rockford area for the past fifteen years, chances are good that you have heard of the band Mane St. Throughout the years they have had their share of ups and downs, but have stuck together through it all.

They are reinventing themselves with twist on the spelling of their name, MainStreet, a small change that keeps it familiar. A revamped playlist that brings

out the best in this talented group makes for an entertaining evening.

John Potes, base guitar and vocals, is one of the original members he graduated from Rockford High School way back in 1976 when the school was located at Ten Mile and Northland Drive. Scott Faulkner, lead guitar and vocals graduated the same year. Sound tech and “producer” Scott Knecht was a 1974 grad. Newcomer, and first female member of the band, Amanda Jones (class of 1994) is on vocals and keyboard. Their ever-talented drummer David Carter has played in different venues across the U.S.

You can come and enjoy their sound this Saturday Oct.16 at The Rogue River Tavern, 4 N. Main St., from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.
