If you are looking for that special combination of live music, a jovial atmosphere and small town charm, then you need to know about the Summer Music Series in historic Ste. Genevieve.
Featuring a variety of musical styles ranging from soulful rhythm and blues to convincing musical tributes to Johnny Cash and the Beatles, the series runs for 7 consecutive weekends in June and July.
Now in its sixth season, the Summer Music Series brings regional and national touring acts to perform on stage at the Orris, a former movie theater in the historic district of downtown Ste. Genevieve.
The 20th Annual Old Time Music, Ozark Heritage Festival, will be held downtown West Plains. You are invited to celebrate the Old Time music and the distinctive culture of the Ozarks Highlands. This festival strives to acknowledge the many able local performers, the need to save these expressive traditions and maintain the focus of authenticity.
Old Time Music will be performed for two full days from our main stage, featuring outstanding local and regional artists representing the musical traditions of the Ozarks. The second stage is designed to bridge the gap between the generations of musicians in an effort to keep the traditional music of the area alive and well through the interpretations of new performers.
Outside activities also include exhibits, mule jumping, singing, cooking stage, blacksmiths, spinners and weavers, quilters, candle makers, traditional basket makers as well as numerous food vendors. Inside the air conditioned comfort of the West Plains Civic Center you can enjoy various workshops and jammin' sessions. Around the festival you'll find jig dancers, workshops, fiddlers, banjos, string bands, pickers and more. On the 'What's Cookin' Stage' you'll find demonstrations of traditional Ozark cookin' with a dash of entertainment to boot!
This fun musical takes you on a musical journey through the California pop scene of the late 1960s and early 1970s as you join a group of dreamers that converge on the sunny pacific shore to celebrate the harmonies of a new age.

The “We Always Swing”© Jazz Series closes out its 19th season with the Brad Mehldau Trio paying a return visit to Murry’s Restaurant and Jazz Club on Easter Sunday.
Mehldau is first and foremost an improviser, whose style and personality combine to create something close to controlled chaos. He has performed in a variety of small-group contexts, with Joshua Redman, Charlie Haden and Wayne Shorter, among others. But for the past nearly 20 years, the pianist’s most consistent configuration has been fronting a trio. Bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Jeff Ballard, both Jazz Series veterans, accompany Mehldau.
Performances begin at 3:30 p.m. and 7 p.m.; the doors open one hour earlier. Get your tickets at the box office, on line at wealwaysswing.org or through Ticketmaster.

This unique new musical is based on the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name, about an annual contest at a Texas truck dealership, where ten hard-luck Texans compete for a new hardbody truck.
A new lease on life is so close each of them can touch it, and now for once, their fate is in their hands. Under a scorching sun, over the next 144 hours they will laugh, cry and push their bodies and minds to the limits, as they fight to keep at least one hand on a brand new truck. The contestant with the most nerve and endurance will drive away with the American Dream.
