According to a release from PromoWest, the concerts' founder, Bill Donabedian, will continue to oversee the events.  The company will handle booking, marketing, and production for the concerts.

The banks of the Ohio River are hosting a musical extravaganza this weekend as the Bunbury Music Festival returns to Sawyer Point and Yeatman's Cove in Cincinnati . The event Friday, Saturday and Sunday features 80 live performances on six stages.

"You really can't beat being on the river down there," said Bunbury marketing manager Brian Kitzmiller.  "The river stage alone, which is down on the Serpentine Wall, has the river backdrop; the bridge is behind there; and then the main stage has the arena in the background.  It's fantastic."
