Jason Wainscott's Profile

Jason Wainscott

Born and bred in Cincy and have been spending way too much money on concerts here at all the local venues for over 20 years. Will give any musician a couple tries before making up my mind, but I generally gravitate towards Dad-rock (probably because I’m old and a dad). Reds fan.

Review: Chris Stapleton

Kentucky native, Chris Stapleton brought his All-American Road Show Tour with Brent Cobb and the incomparable Marty Stuart, to Cincinnati to close the summer concert season at Riverbend. The rain held off and it was a fitting end to a pretty great run of shows on the river in 2018.

Review: Pentatonix

Pentatonix is nothing if not appreciative of their fans. They thank them often and promote positive messages of diversity, acceptance, following your dreams, and being who you are.

Review: Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit at PNC

There’s a spectrum where many musicians fall when they perform live. On one end, they can further their mythology by putting on a larger-than-life show with big lights, pyrotechnics, and massive sound and visual arrangements that seek to elevate the act to something otherworldly. The concert version of a Marvel movie.
