Oxford’s newest band, Shooting Out The Lights, rocks Proud Larry’s

Sierra Leone Refugee All Stars Concert

Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars started playing music together in West African refugee camps while their homeland was racked by years of bloody warfare. Since then, in electrifying live performances and recording experience with the likes of Aerosmith and Mavis Staples, the All Stars have been “establishing an identity based as much on skill, imagination and charisma as on their undeniably touching story” (The Los Angeles Times).

This spring, on the heels of their new album, Rise & Shine (Cumbancha, March 23), the group will perform in Oxford at Proud Larry’s on Monday, May 3. (April 30, 2010)

Westmorland of Devil Train on bass; Louis Jay Meyers from Killbilly on pedal steel and banjo; Jesse Williams, known for his work with Grace Askew on drums; and special guest Candace Mache singing harmony.

Oxford’s Rosamond Posey balances law and music

OXFORD TOWN – Local attorney and musician Rosamond Posey and The Posey Family Band will be rocking at Proud Larry’s on Wednesday evenings from 6-8 for the next two weeks where crawfish and rock ‘n’ roll will rule the night. Business suits, cowboy boots and center stages – Posey is, without a doubt, one of the hardest working (and playing) women in Oxford. See Page 9 of Oxford Town this week and read how the multi-talented lawyer pulls off the ultimate juggling act. (March 25, 2010, Page 9)

Shannon’s back

OXFORD TOWN – Shannon McNally has surrounded herself with band members that she considers “family” – and one of them actually is; her husband, drummer Wallace Lester. The band’s latest album “Coldwater” was recently released and they have hit the road in a big way to support it. One stop of that tour is next week at Proud Larry’s on March 11. McNally talks with Oxford Town’s Kate Anthony about her influences, defining a genre and the late Jim Dickinson, producer of “Coldwater.” (March 4, 2010, Page 11)
