POINT PLEASANT — The City of Point Pleasant will once again sponsor the free summer-long concert series Mayor’s Night Out at Riverfront Park.
The concerts are held from 8-10 p.m. each Friday night, June 7 through Aug. 30 with the exceptions of regatta and fair weekends. There are 11 artists booked for this year’s concert series.
“We will begin on our Mayor’s Night Out concert series Friday, June 7 with Dub V’s, one of this area’s premier bands,” Mayor Brian Billings said. “We are very fortunate to be able to have this concert series in our community. This year our lineup consists of Top 40, Rock, Country, Bluegrass and Gospel. There is no charge to come and enjoy an evening of relaxing music at the Riverfront Park along the shores of the great Ohio River.”
Again, the popular group The Dub V’s will kick off the series with a high energy show of radio rock, pop, and dance music - all of it with their own special twist on each song. The band consists of Joey D, Josh Billings, Ron “Jeremy” Russell and Dana Gillispie.
