Some friends are right down the street, while others you have to travel to meet. The Augusta Regional Airport is no exception when it comes to this time of year’s spike in airplane flights.


As you wait to board, you might feel the time dragging. To aid that wait, the airport has invited several CSRA artists to entertain you from Tuesday to Dec. 23. One of them is Augusta-native Patrick Reagan.


Reagan is a music composition student at LaGrange College. He sings, writes songs and plays the guitar, piano, bass and drums.


His friend Luke Amerson and he are the first ones scheduled to perform on Tuesday. They will play for one-day-only at 9 a.m., 2 and 6 p.m.


“We will be playing Christmas songs at the terminal gate,” Reagan said.


Also performing are John Hobbs at 9 a.m., 2 and 6 p.m. on Wednesday; Jason Pooler at 9 a.m., 2 and 6 p.m. on Thursday; the Camellia Brass Ensemble at 9 a.m. on Dec. 20 and Dec. 22; Eryn Eubanks at 2 and 6 p.m. on Dec. 20; Tara Scheyer at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Dec. 21; Josh Whitting at 6 p.m. on Dec. 21, 22, 23 and DMT at 2 p.m. on Dec. 22 and 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Dec. 23.


Performances are for airport users only, since they will be at the Terminal Building hold area, according to Luran Smith, airport communications manager.
