Origin of the Down n' Out Band
Down n' Out, yet another semi-success story from a Nevada, Missouri band. 'DnO' as they are often referred to, had a long haul performing heavily in the region playing at many notable venues, and festivals. The band had a very dedicated following that would travel miles through rain or snow to see them make their mark. ...
Nevada, Missouri is next best for food, wine, and song
Most folks from Missouri have heard of Nevada, and probably know where it is at. They may have even dropped by for a gas stop when traveling. Some have journeyed into the town and might have even had a bite to eat at the long running greasy spoon cafe there named 'White Grill'. Though the average passer-by's did not really experience the amazing ordeal that is going on in Nevada, Missouri...

Thank you Fort Scott
It was an absolutely amazing weekend at the Common Ground Coffeehouse in Ft. Scott. We had a good turn out including some famous writers Nancy Malcom, and Doris Quackenbush. David Byerly played so amazing on the mandolin and the resonator guitar. I felt like I played a pretty good set of my original tunes: 'Living Out Your Dreams', 'Summer Trains', 'Fire Truck', 'Rain Song', 'Number Eleven', and 'Rock Iowa...

Operator, please connect me to 1985
One of the all time longest running bands here in Vernon County was the Leavell Brothers. The brothers, Wayne (Lead Vocals), Ed (Bass Guitar), and David (Rhythm Guitar) were the core group and many other musicians from around here have performed with them from time to time...
Art, music, and literature were appreciated on Thursday during the noon hour at the Art Shop located at 104 East Cherry street in Nevada, Missouri. The group is looking to become a part of the local Vernon County Arts Council where area artists of all types will have a place to be able to centralize, and archive the works of Vernon County creative artists of all types...
Music Scene Theme
It is not really the theme to the music scene here, but it seems kinda like that. 'Nevada Missouri' is my very own, newest, recorded work. It has currently been released and is avalable at all of the major music outlets on the internet. I hope it helps point to our music scene and our town as a whole...
Shorter, more frequent, and now
Hopefully you have already noticed the change as the new year came in. The shorter blogs, more frequent, and right now. As we remember the past, and look forward to the future, one thing we must never forget to do today is celebrate the present. After all the present is just that, a gift, that is here today. So hopefully for this whole year we will be celebrating each day and truly view it as a present...
Remembering the Lonesome Cowboys
A great band a few years back in Vernon County were the Lonesome Cowboys. They had a few neat songs and produced a CD of all original music in 1997 as well. The band played around the Missouri and Kansas scene playing at area festivals and rodeos. In July of 1997 the band played at the Vernon County Fair. During that time there were a lot of T-shirts with their logo on them being worn by area residents. A good time was had by all whom attended their shows...
