POINT PLEASANT — This week’s Mayor’s Night Out concert will feature not only a free music but free food.
Concessions will be offered by The Kitchen Table group, the outreach arm of the Pleasant Valley Hospital Auxiliary. The group will be serving hot dogs, barbecue sandwiches, chips, cookies and a drink, at no charge. If anyone would like to make a donation for the food, they will be accepted but are not required to be fed. All donations will be given to the City of Point Pleasant’s efforts to build a splash pad at Krodel Park.
All free concerts for Mayor’s Night Out begin at 8 p.m., Fridays at Point Pleasant Riverfront Park. This week’s headliner is Matt Metheney who performs country music. Metheney, from Rutland, Ohio, has three songs currently on the radio and on iTunes. His most listened to song is “Drunk on Memories” which he wrote for three of his friends who have passed away. He traveled to Nashville last year to be a part of the New Country Music Artist venue during the CMA Festival and has performed at the Adelphia Music Hall in Marietta, Ohio as well as at the Colony Club in Gallipolis, Ohio. He’s booked to play various fairs and festivals this summer and will return to Roshambo Studios to work on an album for release later in the summer.
