The Show Goes On: Band plays despite power outage

More than 100 people turned up in Warner Robins for a country music concert, courtesy of Sky Country, a band made up of Air Force Reserve Members.

But after a tree toppled onto a power line and caused a power outage at the Museum of Aviation, the darkness couldn't stop the party.

The band was scheduled to perform outside the Museum of Aviation, but the hot weather moved the show indoors.

After the lights went out, Flint Energies crews worked to fix the problem, but the museum stayed dark for more than an hour.

Victoria Martina, her family and dozens of others decided to stick it out anyway.

"Because they're wonderful. These guys are great," said Bill Court. "They're a great band, a great uplift. They play all kinds of songs. We've watched them at Fourth of July every year since we moved here from California in 2000."

Band member Steve Wilson says the power outage is just one of those things that happens.

"We have the best of intentions to go out and provide a wonderful concert for this great community and weather takes place, so what do we do? Adapt." he said.

In the end, like true heroes, Sky Country toughed it out and didn't miss a beat giving these fans an acoustic performance in the dark.
