POINT PLEASANT — What do you get when you mix a Nashville recording group with a reality television star? A big night out in Point Pleasant.

This Friday at the Point Pleasant Moose Lodge, Trailer Choir and one of its front men, Vinny Hickerson, who was also the 2011 runner up on “The Biggest Loser,” will be appearing and performing. Hickerson will also be signing autographs. The music starts at 9 p.m. with the Dub V’s as the opening act and Trailer Choir performing shortly after. Tickets are $10 and will be available at the door. This is an over 21 years of age show.

Trailer Choir was signed to Show Dog Nashville, a label owned by Toby Keith, in 2007. After recording the song “Off the Hillbilly Hook” for the soundtrack to Keith’s film “Beer for My Horses” Trailer Choir charted the singles “What Would You Say”, “Rockin’ the Beer Gut” and “Rollin’ Through the Sunshine” on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. These singles were followed by an extended play called “Off the Hillbilly Hook” and an album called “Tailgate.”

A spokesperson for the group and the Moose said the show was booked thanks to a lucky turn of events. The group is performing in Delaware the night before the Moose show and would be driving through the area on their way home. For this reason, the show fell together really fast. Now, the concert and appearance by Hickerson also in his capacity as a reality television star, is one of the most buzzed about events on local social media for this weekend.

The show is open to the public, not just Moose Lodge members.
