SML Good Neighbors is excited to present these shows, while also strengthening their role in the lives of many children throughout our region. Net proceeds from upcoming events at the Coves Amphitheater will go to support their mission of developing ‘Good Neighbor skills and values in children through programs that nourish, educate and support them while providing life-changing experiences for college students through leadership development internships.’
In sharing her goals for these events, SML Good Neighbors Exec. Director Lisa Lietz remarks, “SML Good Neighbors is a united community effort. It is our supporters (donors, volunteers, staff and families) whose altruistic attitudes shape Good Neighbors’ culture to be one of lifting and love. The community has always shared in the joys and challenges together that we face.”
Gary Jackson has played a key role in supporting the spirit of this idea. “Our mission is simple: to provide aid and support to those in need through world class concert experiences. When you purchase a ticket to a Coves event, you can think of it as a donation to help the hungry in our area, or to provide mentor support for children in need, among other SML Good Neighbors Programming, all while simply enjoying a day or evening of music with us.”

About The Coves
Nestled in the peaceful, natural setting of southwestern Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains, The Coves at Smith Mountain Lake was created under a single guiding ideal: To provide all the benefits of a waterfront retreat while preserving the sense of community that we all desire.
To do this, the Coves features a solar powered, tech-friendly, outdoor venue that instantly connects to miles of hiking trails winding through open meadows, deep woods, and incredible vistas - all on a clear mountain lake in Southwest Virginia. Coves mountain retreat home and cottage packages are available from Mountain Retreat Living, the premier home division of Southern Heritage Homes.
Music event guests are encouraged to read our faq and arrive early in order to experience all this beautiful new venue has to offer. Located only 45 minutes from nearby Roanoke, 2 hours from Tri-Cities, NC, and 4 hours from DC, the Coves is a private community in the heart of nature's beauty with a dedicated emphasis on protecting and nurturing the environment while providing a strong foundation for a thriving community.
