 King Darwin Band

A high-energy, fun party rock-n-roll music, focused predominantly on the sounds of the 80s, but with a twist of nostalgia and modern era music just for good measure! From the stunning harmony vocals and solid tone to great stage energy, King Darwin is a band that knows how to have fun, and sells its energy to the crowds. Fronting the band is lead vocalist Greg King from Ashland, Ohio. A multi-talented veteran of the stage, Greg also plays bass guitar and is a showman in every sense of the word. He is inspired by a wide array of music, ranging from the Beatles to Def Leppard. On lead guitar and vocals is Adam Taylor from Mount Vernon, Ohio. Adam has been performing on stages across the state for nearly two decades. He’s always ready to throw down the chops and prides himself on good tones and accurate playing. Although he spent most of his teenage years in the 1990s, he admits to being a closeted 1980s hair rocker. On drums is none other than Darwin “Big Al” Cagnon. Returning to the stage in 2010 after a decade long family hiatus, reuniting with Adam in Mad Gathering. With 25 years behind the kit and a true passion for music, he delivers a fundamental rhythmic backbone to King Darwin’s show with machine-like precision, with the perfect amount of flash and finesse. Always organized and on top of his game, Big Al loves to perform. On bass, keys, guitar, and vocals is Ron McDonald from Mansfield, Ohio. His bandmates regard him as one of the most multitalented musicians they’ve ever known. Although his primary duties are on bass, he is a proficient lead guitarist and keyboardist with decades of experience on the stage, and gets to do it all in the King Darwin band. Ron enjoys music from the Beatles to Opeth. King Darwin prides itself on musical versatility and doing it right every time.

Walhonding Rube Band

The Walhonding Band formed around 1916 when Tommy Thompson, an African American barber from Zanesville, came to the Walhonding area and set up shop. His passion was music and in his spare time he gave music lessons to local boys who in turn taught their siblings to play. After a time the boys began performing around the area and the Walhonding Band was formed. Girls were admitted to the band in the 50’s and it was during this time that the band was asked to entertain for the Coshocton County Fair between livestock auctions and horse races. They began to perform “clown-like antics” and dress up in funny costumes resulting in their current name of the Walhonding Rube Band.

The Rube Band is multi-generational with musicians from Jr High through those in their 90’s, including children and grandchildren of the original members. The group has musicians from mainly Coshocton, Knox, Holmes, Muskingum, and Tuscarawas Counties, and enjoy performing marches, waltzes, jazz, and music from the 40’s and 50’s. The band plays for festivals, parades, nursing homes, private parties, fairs, church socials, and about anywhere they are asked!

The ingredients that have kept this band going for over 100 years are community, family, friends, and the love of music. They are always happy to welcome new members. To learn more about the band and their activities you can find them on Facebook.
