"A Horse With No Name"
"Sister Golden Hair"
"A Horse With No Name" made the band called America famous in the United States, Europe and beyond, leading the way for an impressive string of hits to follow. America's journey has taken them into a wide variety of musical terrain, and a look backward seems overdue as they enter their fourth decade.
America at Wildwood Springs Lodge
America returned to the upper reaches of the Pop chart in 1982 with "You Can Do Magic" and brought their live show to audiences in new corners of the globe. In many ways Beckley and Bunnell came into their own as mature artists during this time. And their growth has continued into the present day with such impressive releases as 1998's “Human Nature.”
In a special appearance Rusty Young will open for America.
Packages available: concert tickets only; dinner and concert; dinner, concert and lodging.
Arlo Davy Guthrie is an American folk singer. Like his father, Woody Guthrie, Arlo is known for singing songs of protest against social injustice.
"Dead and Gone"
"In the Garden"
Even though progressive rock may have been born in Europe, several American groups rose to carry the torch of this musical style in the early 1970's. One of the most popular of these bands was Gypsy. The complex musical arrangements, the beautifully executed vocals and the spiritual lyrics made them overwhelming favorites for live concerts. They landed such exceptional gigs as house band at The Whiskey-A- Go-Go; tours with The Guess Who, Black Sabbath, Spirit, The Kinks, King Crimson, Steppenwolf and more.
Gypsy, at Wildwood Springs Lodge
Gypsy has had appearances at major concert venues such as The Atlanta Pop Festival (with Mountain, Jimi Hendrix, and the Allman Brothers) and as headliners at The Fillmore East and West and Winterland. They still play a few selected dates a year.
Michael Brewer & Tom Shipley are truly two who work as one. Still as passionate as ever, they continue to blend guitars and voices and perform for audiences 40 years after their trademark vocal harmonies and intertwined acoustic guitars carved a unique niche in America's soundboard. Their melodic music and underlying lyrical themes of personal freedom and traditional songs of love still resonate with long time fans while continuing to draw new ones.
Brewer & Shipley's Top 10 hit "One Toke Over The Line" was largely responsible for introducing them to the masses, yet their music careers neither began nor ended with this one song.
"I Put a Spell on You"
"Roll Away the Stone"
"Shootout on the Plantation"

"If You Want To Get To Heaven"
"It'll Shine When It Shines"
With eight albums selling over two million records and worldwide hits like "Jackie Blue" and "If You Want To Get To Heaven," the Ozark Mountain Daredevils have come a long way from the Missouri bars and porches where their music was born.
Ozark Mountain Daredevils at Wildwood Springs Lodge
It all began for the Daredevils in 1971 when a collection of singer songwriters from the Springfield area put together a band as an outlet for their songwriting. They Played their first gig near the end of 1971 and, in the spring of the following year, went into the studio to make a demo tape. Their first album contained the smash hit "If You Wanna Get To Heaven" written by Cash and Dillon, and produced a gold album. The pop "Jackie Blue," written by Cash and Larry Lee, came from the second album "It'll Shine When It Shines,” and was a top-five worldwide record.
The band has made subsequent albums, and continues to build their audience through records and touring across the U.S. and Canada, performing for their large cult following. The band was described by Rolling Stone Magazine as "A mixture of Country, Appalachia, the south, and Rock & Roll."
