Warren held its 7th annual Ribfest this past weekend. The Ribfest is a four-day event. Bob and I attended Ribfest each day, beginning on Thursday afternoon (July 15). We listened to Paul Eisert in concert on Thursday afternoon. On Friday we listened to two Rock-n-Roll concerts. The first concert was the band “Jack the Dog”. The second concert was the band “The Earthquakers”. On Saturday we participated in the Thank A Vet Dam Run. When we returned to Betts Park, the site of the Ribfest, we listened to the local country band “Willow Creek” while enjoying the taste of pulled pork sandwiches from Sgt. Oink’s BBQ Co.
The band “Willow Creek” performs today’s country hits. With the exception of lead singer Ron Carrington, Jr., the band has been together for eight years. Ron, a former Warren Idol winner, joined “Willow Creek” in January 2009.
Members of the band are: Ron Carrington Jr. (lead singer), Allen Harle (lead guitar and vocals), Joe Miraglia (pedal steel guitar), Bill Woodfield (piano, keyboard and vocals), Tim Reed (bass guitar and vocals) and Jason Dorman (drums).
Stay tuned; more Ribfest posts to come!
