Big band sounds

The Vince Villanova Big Band took the stage Friday to entertain the crowd gathered at the Weirton Event Center as part of this year’s summer concert series. Under the direction of Lou Casini, the band performs throughout West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania with a repertoire of big band, blues, jazz and more. The summer concert series, organized by the Top of West Virginia Convention and Visitors Bureau, will continue this Friday with De’Ja’Vu and Rumors, before concluding Aug. 23 with Hit Play.
