Airport Summer Jam to feature five bands

| July 19, 2013

COSHOCTON – Five area bands will have the opportunity to shine during the Airport Summer Jam Saturday, July 27 at the Coshocton Airport Amphitheater.

The event will feature music by Maxine Matheny and the Dotson Brothers from 5 to 6 p.m.; Ashleigh Kingsmore from 6:20 to 7:20 p.m.; Band It from 7:40 to 8:40 p.m.; the Jason Pendola Band from 9 to 10 p.m.; and McVay’s Country Gentlemen from 10:20 to 11:20 p.m.

The Jason Pendola Band is the only group returning from last year’s summer jam.

“He’s back by popular demand,” said David Wickham, who serves on the amphitheater board and helps with programming and marketing. “He puts on a really good show and his men are fantastic.”

This will be Pendola’s third time at the amphitheater and he encourages people to come out to the show.

“You will get to hear five bands that range from country to blues to rock and roll at one of the best kept secrets in Coshocton County,” he said. “The amphitheater is a great facility. To hear bands in the open air and hear the planes is a really cool experience.”

In addition to Pendola’s band, Wickham also is excited about McVay’s Country Gentlemen.

“It’s sort of a reunion tour for them,” he said. “They use to be very popular.”

Donnie McVay from McVay’s Country Gentlemen is excited for the show.

“We do country music so we will probably try to do some of the stuff from the Kentucky Headhunters,” he said.

The Kentucky Headhunters will be a featured performer at the Crowtown Country Fest on Saturday, Aug. 24. More information on that concert and other fun at the amphitheater can be found at The $10 summer jam tickets also can be purchased on the website.
