SWINGIN’ ON THE SQUARE

The Swingin’ Medal­lions per­form in Cov­ing­ton

The Covington News - - LOCAL -

Cov­ing­ton got a dou­ble shot Fri­day night as the Swingin’ Medal­lions per­formed their 1966 hit songs, and plenty of oth­ers in front of the Cov­ing­ton His­toric Court­house. The Green­wood, South Carolina band per­formed for two hours, fin­ish­ing with its chart-top­per “Dou­ble Shot,” and get­ting people out of their seats and dancing in the streets. The medal­lions played plenty of 1960’s hits as hun­dreds gath­ered in the Square for the event, some set­ting up their chairs more than three hours be­fore the 7 p.m. start. The show was the first of four sum­mer evening Con­certs on the Square pre­sented by the Arts As­so­ci­a­tion in New­ton County. Jorge Al­varez and orches­tra Nova Sound will take the stage next on Fri­day, July 11.
