Local band entertains Masters visitors at airport

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Many of the visitors who came to Augusta for Masters week received a warm welcome at the Augusta Regional Airport.

Robin Dixon and the Midnight Moon Band entertained folks as they waited for flights or friends.  

On a typical month the airport has about 20,000 passengers; Masters week alone airport officials expect that many people to fly through the airport.

So the band had a big and ever changing audience.

"This airport, here and over here, was completely full. So we're expecting a crowd later this evening," said lead singer Robin Dixon.

The band got the gig by winning the airport's Spring Music Festival competition.
