Pennington’s makes its mark as japanese Ohio leisure venue

JEWETT — This Harrison County neighborhood is almost certainly not the initial put you consider of when you want to go someplace to see nationally-known performers reside on stage.

But given that July 2021, Pennington’s bar and cafe has booked a continual stream of comedians and state singers who have been undertaking in the establishment’s personal atmosphere, often ahead of provide-out crowds.

Those performers have included Frankie Ballard, Jerrod Niemann, Thompson Square, Joe Nichols, Little Texas, David Nail, Neal McCoy (who appeared for two evenings), Tyler Farr, Confederate Railroad, Kentucky Headhunters and a Bon Jovi tribute band, which is sanctioned by Bon Jovi.

Region singer Deana Carter is scheduled to do two shows the next week of February.

And supporters of these performers have been ready to vacation very long distances to see them, coming from as far absent as Cincinnati, Dayton, Erie, Pa., and Lansing, Mich.
