Reggae-rock band Coral Thief will headline this week’s Thursday Night Live at the Riviera at the Breakers. These shows have had great turnouts and this week will be no different with this high-energy band from right here in Denver! Sip a refreshing drink and allow the lake views to transport you to a sandy beach in Mexico, Puerto Rico or Kokomo. Don’t miss out on this week’s performance.
