OZ knows music – Here is where you will find the best

Post from 2019

Hello all my music lovers and favorite dancers, Oz here!


As the producer of The Ozark Mountain Music Festival, I have probably met you at one or all of the past festivals.  It is hard to believe that it has been 6 years since we started our January Music Festival indoors at the Basin Park Hotel. Since I am always out scouting music for the festival, I thought I would share with you where the music is at.

Follow me here each month.  I want to dance with all of you, all year long!  

I saw some of you these last couple of weekends at the Annual Bluegrass Weekend and Chucky Waggs show at Chelseas….amazing shows! Special thanks to The City of Eureka Springs for bringing some of the best talents in the business to the Basin Park for FREE! Old Salt Union, The Po’ Ramblin Boys, The Cate Brothers did not disappoint!

As we head into Labor Day weekend Brick Fields is back on Chelseas stage on Friday 8/30 to serenade us with her Blues Therapy. Come join in on some old school gospel, blues, and original music of Brick Fields and the Chosen Ones.
