“Saturday Night Jamboree”
“Pure Country Band”
On January 1, 2005, the rebirth of the original “Saturday Night Jamboree” (SNJ) became a reality. The original SNJ was a live TV show on WSAZ-TV in the late 1950’s presented a Grand Ole Opry theme and featured local singers and musicians. Since the rebirth of the Jamboree, we have had dozens of local artists from the tri-state area perform on our stage with the “Pure Country Band”. We will strive to keep the Jamboree alive for many years to come and keep it a family show featuring traditional country music. The SNJ is based in Huntington, WV at the Huntington Renaissance Center and is a Scottie King Production.
