Review: Wynonna at the Kent State Performing Arts Center

The commanding voice of Wynonna Judd could be heard throughout the Kent State Tuscarawas Performing Arts Center Friday night and probably across the city of New Philadelphia for that matter. This was Wynonna’s second visit to the PAC, and I could see why they invited her back! As a country music fan my entire life, I would never pass up an opportunity to hear a country legend, but I must admit I was a little nervous going into her show, as the majority of her hits topped the charts before I was 10 years old. The good thing is classic country never dies, and I was pleasantly surprised with her song selection and performance.

Wynonna an
d her band “The Big Noise” are exceptional musicians, and their chemistry on stage was easily noticed by the crowd. The group performed the expected "She Is His Only Need," "No One Else on Earth," and "To Be Loved by You” with individual solos in between. Upon what we thought was the completion of the show, the band re-entered the stage for a few final songs. Wynonna asked for requests and appeased many by playing “Grandpa” with the crowd singing along to every word.

Wynonna is a self-proclaimed storyteller, and she lived up to that title Friday night. Wynonna talk
ed about her mother, Naomi, and their sometimes difficult but loving relationship. She also mentioned that her husband “Cactus,” who is also her amazing drummer, was involved in a serious motorcycle crash and was not expected to play ever again. He overcame that doctor’s prediction and is one of the best drummers I have ever heard. He also lost his leg in the accident and excitedly showed the audience his prosthetic as Wynonna looked on laughing. (He must do that at every show.) Wynonna also praised their “bonus” son Justin, who is also a part of the band and is married to Cactus’ daughter. Justin had just received a new guitar, and his grandparents were in the audience. You could tell he was excited to play in Tuscarawas County that night.

Intimacy re
ally stood out at this show. As I said before, Wynonna likes to tell stories, and she did that in between almost every song. If she wasn’t talking on her own, she was involving the audience, once even calling out a man named Curt who was wearing a camo sweatshirt. Curt attempted to leave the front row during a slow song. Wynonna interrupted and told him (sarcastically) that it was not acceptable to leave during a slow song. She also asked a police officer if he was “packing” a gun when he attempted to calm down a happy fan in the front row. But the most heartwarming part of the show happened after the first couple songs. A young girl named Mia ran to the stage to hand Wynonna some roses. Wynonna then invited Mia on stage, and we found out Mia received show tickets for her birthday. Wynonna was just surprised Mia knew who she was and could name her favorite songs, as Mia appeared to be nearly 10 years old! While Wynonna admitted she probably wouldn’t remember Mia’s name forever, we all know Mia will never forget that moment on stage with her idol.

onna expressed she was feeling extra “sassy” Friday after waking up in Ohio with extra large hair that day, and boy was she right! The show was high energy and included both slow and upbeat songs. I would definitely see this sassy redhead again! Thank you to the PAC for bringing in such a great artist and inspiration to children like Mia.

Sharon Buckley-Mirhaidari Wins Grand Slam 2014

WJER, First Federal Community Bank, and the Parkway Auto Group held the Grand Slam final drawing on Thursday, October 23rd at Parkway Ford in Dover. All twenty semi-finalists received prizes from First Federal Community Bank, WJER, Parkway, and the Cleveland Indians. Prizes included a car wash/interior cleaning/tire shine from Parkway Nissan, a WJER T-shirt, calendar, and pen, a goodie bag from First Federal, and a variety of prizes from the Tribe. At the end of the evening, Sharon Buckley-Mirhaidari of Dover walked away with the $500 cash grand prize, and Beverley Rieger of Strasburg was our runner up. Beverley received four club seats to see the Tribe at Progressive Field during their 2015 season, and because Beverley was also the only one of our semi-finalists who had a grand slam during "her" game, she also received a gift card to Speedway and a First Federal Community Bank mug. Thanks to everybody who participated in this year's Grand Slam contest, and congratulations to Sharon!
