Saturday was a beautiful day for our concert. Buddy Case and his pal Shawn Keck filled in for the ailing Pete Brown and Patti LaFleur, who along with Buddy are the rest of The Acousticatz. We all from the Front Porch Stage wish Pete a most speedy recovery.
Buddy did a great job and everyone enjoyed his show. Buddy played a variety of originals and covered some classic favorites from the likes of John Denver, Simon & Garfunkel and more. Visit Buddy’s website to learn more about him and his music.
Buddy and Shawn did a real crowd-pleaser when they did their version of “Dueling Banjos”. Buddy’s “Gothic Jazz” was sensational; man, he can play a guitar!
Overall a great evening.
Shawn Keck (banjo) and Buddy Case (guitar). A great performance! Thank you.

Prairie Grove are always a favorite at the Front Porch Stage, and last Saturday was no exception as they kicked off the 2014 concert season with a terrific show. If the Front Porch Stage has a “house band”, Prairie Grove is it, and we welcome them back each month throughout the season. This 7 member band has a great sound and a wonderfully diverse repertoire.
If you missed them last Saturday, please join us on June 7, when they return with their mix of oldies, country, bluegrass, and gospel music.
Our next concert on May 10 features the Acousticatz. Hope you can join us.

We are just beginning the process of creating a new website for the Front Porch Stage. It will take us a while to do so, but, hopefully, you’ll soon be able to access much of the old site’s content.
This will be a work in progress, and we ask that you be patient with us as we develop the new site.
If there is particular content that you wish to see us concentrate on, please do let us know via our contact information published on the site.
Looking forward to more great Front Porch Music beginning in May, 2014.
A terrifically attended concert by one of the area’s favorite bands, with a good jam preceding the concert.
