American Idol star tops bill for Labor Day Celebration
Due to limited seating, lawn chairs welcome
By Mary Catherine Brooks
Wyoming County Bureau Chief
Bo Bice, of American Idol fame, will headline this year’s Wyoming County Labor Day Celebration Saturday, Sept. 2. Along with Bice’s band, Sugar Money, the free concert will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the Pineville Middle School football field.
SRO, a southern rock band, will open for Bice at 3 p.m. The band has a huge following, according to Sherri Ellison, a member of the entertainment committee.
Due to the limited amount of seating, lawn chairs will be welcome, Ellison said.
Special accommodations near the stage will be made for concert-goers with special needs or those confined to a wheelchair. These individuals may contact a member of the event staff or any police officer the day of the concert for assistance.
No alcohol, coolers, pets or weapons will be permitted on the grounds, she emphasized.
Additionally, audio and video recording equipment will not be allowed. Digital and standard cameras are acceptable, Ellison noted.
Bice has been playing in bands, writing songs, recording and producing music since he was in high school.
“My father played guitar, banjo and mandolin,” the Alabama native said. “My mother and her three cousins were in a group called the Singing Jays, and my mom sang at the Grand Ole Opry.”
It was a natural progression for the 30-year-old to fantasize about a career in music.
He is a professional song writer and has produced a couple of Christian rock bands; however, his star blazed when he took the stage of American Idol.
Bice is now promoting his debut album, “The Real Thing,” which includes songs he helped write. Produced by Clive Davis, the record also includes songs written by such industry giants as Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and John Shanks.
