Designed to engage and entertain current and prospective bank customers, the “On the Road with First Trade” Concert Series represents the like-mindedness of these two organizations, in their forward-thinking approach to doing business and enhancing the customer experience.  Chris Tremont, First Trade’s Vice President / Director of Marketing, explains, “We believe that banking is something you should be able to do whenever and wherever it is convenient for you, so we have developed personal and business banking products that fit the needs and lifestyles of our customers, no matter how they choose to bank with us.  Our collaboration with 92.5 the River epitomizes the idea that we can stand apart from our competition by celebrating our independence from conventional banking.”

92.5 the River’s General Manager, Donald St. Sauveur concurs, saying, “Aligning First Trade with the River and these unique, ‘money-can’t-buy’ VIP musical experiences seems to be the perfect way for the bank to differentiate from competitive banks while engaging with their customers and prospects.”

The “On the Road with First Trade” Concert Series, which will include six live shows before an audience of River listeners and bank customers and prospects, debuts March 26, 2013 with a performance by Dawes at the Foundation Room @ The House of Blues, 55 Lansdowne Street in Boston.  Fresh from a tour with Mumford & Sons, Dawes will give the audience a preview of their new album, “Stories Don’t End,” set for release on April 9.  Guests at each event will be treated to a live music performance, interviews with the bands, photos and autographs, gifts and refreshments – all in the spirit of independent radio for independent thinkers.
