      Join RME for Friday Live at 5 featuring Nervous Rex outside on the RME Courtyard sponsored by Ruhl and Ruhl Insurance.

      Nervous Rex was accidentally formed in June of 2004 by four rock and jazz musicians of curiously diverse backgrounds, who happened to share a passion for music and the desire to express it in its many colors. This formed the basis of a crazy experiment, and a week after formally introducing the members of the band to each other, Nervous Rex played their first gig. The experiment proved to be a success when they were invited back to play the following week.

      The band took off faster than anyone would have expected. In their first year, they earned a house band gig, and played at Sturgis on the River and the Rockin’ Rib Fest. The band went their own separate ways in early 2007, after two of the members moved to Los Angeles, California. The band had a brief revival with some new members, but the band and the name were officially retired in 2008.

      In 2012 Robert returned to the Quad Cities and the band reunited the classic lineup of the band for a few shows. Now that Jerry and Vid are playing the old songs together again, “a few shows” just won’t do! They have enlisted the guitar and vocal talents of our frequent collaborator, Jeff “Doc VH” VenHorst. Nervous Rex is back together, with an updated sound!Friday Live at 5 gives residents and visitors an opportunity to experience the downtown atmosphere with live music outdoors, immediately after the busy work week ends. 

      A cash bar will be available serving both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved into the café on the RME Community Stage. Swing by after your busy work week and enjoy free live music outside on the RME Courtyard in beautiful downtown Davenport with a refreshing beverage in hand!
