Here is a list of things to enjoy around the area, if you know of an upcoming local event that would like to be mentioned here for free please let us know.
Bring On The Weekend!
McGuffey Lane’s high-energy rock, country and contemporary music have been attracting attention throughout Ohio and the Midwest for nearly twenty years. But this veteran band remains fresh and innovative, redefining itself with an infusion of new talent that blends perfectly with the bands established style. Ever since their magical ‘break” when the band was playing the Ohio State campus years ago and got discovered and signed to a record deal, McGuffey Lane has built their career on music which has been both artistically and commercially successful, leading the group to tours with The Charlie Daniel’s Band, The Judds, Marshall Tucker, and The Allman Brothers.
