EAA AirVenture Oshkosh
Posted on May 8, 2014
The concert, presented by Ford Motor Company, is free to all AirVenture attendees that day and will be held on the Plaza immediately following the Monday afternoon air show. Loggins’ newest endeavor, Blue Sky Riders (Loggins, Georgia Middleman, Gary Burr), will start the evening’s entertainment.
“Kenny Loggins is a sensational fit for the opening-night concert at Oshkosh since his music is well-known and loved by multiple generations of fans,” said Jim DiMatteo, EAA’s vice president of AirVenture features and attractions. “He brings the energy and enthusiasm that complements the full week of aviation excitement that will be featured at EAA AirVenture.”
“Ford is proud to be the exclusive automotive partner with EAA for more than a decade and pleased to enhance the experience for everyone attending EAA AirVenture Oshkosh,” said Kevin Keling, North America Corporate Events Manager for Ford Motor Company. “Since 2006 we’ve helped bring some of the biggest names in music history to the stage at Oshkosh to kick off aviation’s annual reunion, and we’re eager to have Kenny Loggins join that roster for the opening night concert.”
