Buddy Roger’s Music on Aug. 20 hosted its inaugural Block Party in Newport, Ky., in an effort to get the community excited for the upcoming school year. Featured at the event, hosted by the Cincinnati MI retailer, were the University of Cincinnati Bearcat Bands, Cincinnati Tradition Drum & Bugle Corps, as well as high-school drumlines.
In all, more than 200 performers converged on Newport’s plaza in front of the Cincinnati skyline. A “music lab” was made possible by the Cincinnati Symphony and Pops Orchestra, Northern Kentucky University Music Prep Department and Antonio Violins.
In addition, kids experienced music for the first time, and a “bedazzled” photo booth made for special memories that can last.
