On Friday, June 14, 2019 The Ultimate Oldies Show returns to Jonesboro. The 7 PM performance will be at The Forum, 115 East Monroe Avenue. The show is being presented by the West End Neighborhood Association.
“People who come to it can’t believe the talent and the quality of the show," Joe Wessel, producer of the event, said. "A lot of people tell us that it's better than shows they have seen in much larger venues"
The Oldies Show is known for local singing talent and performers. The evening features a fast-paced, energy-filled journey back to the golden age of the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. It is a mainstay of regional entertainment and is not to be missed.
“I think it's the music; kids love that music even today," Wessel said. "We have people from all over the state coming to this show. Our patrons are amazed at the professionalism and flair of our performers. It is ‘Nashville caliber’.”
A few of the names in the line-up to perform include Richie Williams, Lori Dial, Ryan Fisher, Suzie Stacy, Shannon Freeman, Chandler Gill, Savannah Morris, Sam Morris, Craig Morris and Donna Rhodes Morris.
The Ultimate Oldies Show is a charity fundraiser concert that will support local community activities including The Birdsong Educational Garden (teaching elementary students), neighborhood safety lighting, MicroSociety Magnet School projects, CWL Park upgrades, Neighborhood Clean-up Initiatives, The annual A-State Arkansas Roots Music Festival, and the historic preservation work of the neighborhood. These programs and others will benefit visitors, residents, and especially children in the Historic West End Neighborhood and the greater Jonesboro community here in Northeast Arkansas.
