NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – Tribute bands will be featured all summer long at Eastwood Field in Niles, home of the Mahoning Valley Scrappers.
Friday was opening night for the first-ever series called “Summer Hits at the Ballpark.”
Friday night’s concert featured the music of Toby Keith and Garth Brooks. Moxie Events of Warren organized it.
“What is better than a summer night in the ballpark? Cold drink in your hand and great music. It just was a great idea that we conceived with the Scrappers and thought it would be a great thing to bring the Valley,” said promoter Jennifer Saul-Campbell.
The second concert at Eastwood Field is Saturday night. It will be a tribute to Motown.
Between now and Labor Day, there will also be tribute bands featuring Bon Jovi, Miranda Lambert, Stevie Wonder and Bruno Mars. Tickets are $12.
