Moreland and Arbuckle . . .This is my favorite way to hear Moreland and Arbuckle, outside in a festival type setting.  This group has a lot of energy and really shines in a setting like this.  Their sound is big and it boomed out across Oakdale Park for all to hear.

     It was a super hot night but the band played from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. and did not disappoint.  How they kept going through it all is a testament to their talent and love of music.  And to the their fans.  The fans never get enough and called for an encore.  On this night, the band did not comply and who could blame them.  It was a very hot night to be out in the park. 

     Moreland and Arbuckle played all their hits: from Fishin' Hole to Caney Valley Blues, to everybody's favorite, Legend of John Henry.  The band closed the show with . . .John Henry.  It's become a signature song for them and as the concert moved along, fans thought they might not hear this song and began calling it out to the band.  At the end, the fans were rewarded with their favorite.

     Check this band out, buy a CD and take it home.  Moreland and Arbuckle are making a name for themselves and you'll want to be able to say, someday, "Hey, I saw them in Oakdale Park (or any local venue) way back in the day."
