Area bands and musicians shared their talents to help raise money for Veterans.

American Legion Post 290 in Columbiana rocked Saturday night for Jam Fest 2013!

Tickets were $25.00 in advance, or $30.00 at the gate. The price included live music all day, and a roast beef dinner.

All the proceeds will benefit veterans organizations.

More than 20 local acts took the stage from 1 p.m. to midnight.

“It wasn’t hard, it really wasn’t, all you had to do was mention veterans, and they were all for it, and God bless ’em,” said Ron Arter, Sons of the American Legion.

“I would like to say that I’d like to see everybody, if they have a friend who’s a veteran, tell them ‘Thank you for serving.’,” said Richard Simpson, Commander, American Legion Post #290.

The money collected by American Legion Post 290 will be distributed out to various Veteran organizations.

Post leaders plan to host Jam Fest again next year.
