Dent May’s New Album ‘Do Things’ Gets Fun(ky)

OXFORD TOWN – The ukelele-clutching Oxonian who crooned about post-college living and all its velvety splendor has returned. Actually he never went anywhere but it’s been three years since Dent May’s first album, “The Good Feeling Music of Dent May & His Magnificent Ukelele,” caught the attention of college radio stations and major music publications nationwide. But now, he’s back in the game with a brand spankin’ new album titled “Do Things.” Turn to page 7 in Oxford Town No. 983 for a special album review of “Do Things” by former Oxford Town Editor Mitch Morgan. “This is your summer soundtrack, Oxford. Soak it up.” (June 14, 2012, Page 7)

        Silas Reed ‘N’ Da Books set for The Grove this Sunday

        OXFORD TOWN – Infectuous energy. Perpetual motion. It seems these topics spring to mind any time Oxonian Silas Reed’s name or music is mentioned. Hook Silas up with a top-notch funk band (Da Books) and a person can’t keep his/her feet still — can’t help but move — and move like they mean it. Catch OHS graduate and Ole Miss DJ/musician Silas Reed (pictured)) ‘N’ Da Books this Sunday evening (June 10) as the popular local funk band continues June’s Summer Sunset Series in the Grove. The family-friendly, free concerts begin at 7 and end (approximately) as the sun sets on the most famous and beautiful patch of green in the South — The Grove on the Ole Miss campus. Next up (on June 17 ) will be the silky-smooth folk/Americana/blues sounds of Maybelle’s Lovers. (June 7, 2012, Page 8)
