Robby Parsons Band will bring their music to Paden City Park Thursday, 7 p.m.

The Paden City Park and Pool Commission hosts music in Paden City Park every Thursday night as part of their music in the park summer series. Since June 26, performers and musicians from the local area and beyond take to the stage at the city park in Paden City from 7-9 p.m. to bring free entertainment to the local area. The series is scheduled to take place every week until Aug. 28. This year, the Park and Pool Commissioners have put together a lineup of entertainers who are sure to please the music tastes of young and old alike.

Concessions are sold at these events and all proceeds are put back into the park. Plenty of parking is available and restrooms are also close by. Lawn seating and bleacher seating is available. The commission invites all music lovers and anyone looking for something to do on Thursday evenings to come to Paden City Park.

Parsons is a highly skilled guitar player and his vocals leave nothing to be desired. He will entertain the crowd with his high energy act and song selection of old and new. Parsons and his band have performed throughout the area and are well known in the local pubs.

On Aug. 14, local entertainer Pete Lauderman will take the stage at 7 p.m. and perform along with some friends for a two-hour event. Lauderman has been a mainstay at the local Paden City Labor Day Festival, opening the event the past two years. Come out and support him as he presents favorites from Merle Haggard to Elvis Presley.

On Aug. 21, local favorite country singers “True Country” will have the stage. True Country, from Paden City, performs regularly at the community center in Friendly on Saturday nights. Their style and vocals are some of the best around.

Aug. 28 is sure to be a crowd pleaser as the Elsons take to the stage. The Elsons are a great gospel group who perform their own music and provide their own vocals. Last year’s event was a big hit with a large crowd and even with storms all around, which they said they prayed away from the park. The show went on and was one of the best of the season.

Paden City Park and Pool Commissioners wish to thank all those who help make these concerts a success.

Local sponsors of the events include Koolaid’s Pizza, Bell Chevrolet, Wable Ford, and the Wells-Inn, all of Sistersville; Boggs Pizza of Middlebourne; Beri Fox, CEO of Marble King, Auto Related, Oil Services, Appliance and Carpet Center, all of Paden City; and McDonald’s and John Mensore, both of New Martinsville.

Any questions about the park, pool, and campground can be addressed to any Park Commissioner or the Mayor by contacting the City Building at 304-337-8804.
