"The country concert and dance programs have worked pretty well for us in the past," says Don Hilton of KSOP. "The show may also serve to give Moe Bandy a needed shot in the arm locally."
Bandy - as most country listeners know - began as a rodeo clown. And his first hits were songs about the life of a cowboy. "Bandy the Rodeo Clown" has become something of his signature song.
He's had several other successes, most of the tunes jaunty "shuffle tunes." A couple of duets with Joe Stampley ("Where's the Dress" - a send-up of Boy George - and "You Always Left Me Holding the Bag") added to his reputation. But it was "Americana," a song that usually draws a standing ovation at concerts, that set his career in lead.
Justice will also play a couple of concert numbers.
Martha Chavez, the local songbird whose singles "Lay Those Loving Hands" and "I Catch on Fire" have done well throughout the South, will open the show.
