LANGSVILLE — On Friday Aug. 4, the Meigs Biker Association along with Jeff Totten held the first night of their weekend musical event Meigs Rockin’ Rally. The proceeds of this event went towards the American Legion Post 476.

Members of the biker club had heard the post was going to be closed down because of low funding and pulled together vendors and musical acts in support to save the post.

Musical acts came out to provide entertainment including Newfeather, Jake Dunn and the Blackbirds, Outside of Society, We Are Funhouse, Seek Irony, City of the Weak, and Deadset Society.

We Are Funhouse took some time out to speak with the Sentinel. The band has been together for four years and generally performs in the Marietta area. Luckily, they are good friends with Totten and made their way down to Meigs County to “vibe out and party with some cool people.”

Members Bryer and Ralph have a grandfather who is a Marine. They both expressed their gratitude towards active and non active members of the military. We Are Funhouse are working on a new album and can be followed on Facebook and Instagram.

Many different choices of food, snacks, and drinks were available for purchase ranging from ice cream to kettle corn to pizza fries to beer. Lisa’s Glitter Box was set up so patrons could do some shopping. Lisa and her husband are both members of the Meigs Biker Association and are avid supporters of the veterans.

Patrons could also get a permanent reminder of the event by purchasing a tattoo at Stick With It mobile tattoo shop. The minimum cost was $80 and many choices of tattoos were available.
