Ozark Mountain Blues Boys Nov. 11th is final act in Main Street Batesville’s Concert Series (Posted by Ginger Smith)
Main Street Batesville announces local blues band, Ozark Mountain Blues Boys, as final performers in the “Concerts in the Loft” series to be held on November 11th in the Barnett Building Loft on Main Street in downtown Batesville. The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with the concert beginning at 7:30 p.m.
“We are excited to put on a great show and very proud to be closing out this successful concert series,” said event producer and OMBB band member Danny Dozier. “Also, this will be a special night to honor our volunteers and sponsors, without which these events wouldn’t have been made possible.”
The Ozark Mtn. Blues Boys band was formed three years ago to perform for the first “Blues Night” at the Mountains, Music and Motorcycles weekend in Mountain View, Arkansas. The original organizer of that event, Grady Spann, gave the blues band their now familiar name and it stuck. Members of the Ozark Mountain Blues Boys are as follows; John Parks/guitar, keyboard and vocals, Jason Moser/drums, Jerry Bone/bass guitar, Hal Vandiver/harmonica and Danny Dozier/guitar, lap steel and vocals.
Main Street Batesville will be recognizing all sponsors and volunteers at the event, as well as, hosting an awards presentation for the volunteers of the year. Complimentary beverages and Thanksgiving-inspired hors d’eouvres will be served. The event is free to the public.
Starting in November of 2015, the “Concerts in the Loft” performances were organized as fundraisers to help continue with the construction of Maxfield Park in historic downtown Batesville. To date the fundraisers have raised approximately $10,000. Future donations will be accepted.
