      Hancock Co. to rock Rooster’s Blues House for free show Dec. 17

      OXFORD TOWN – As most community activities slow to a crawl (or stop completely) at this time of the year in Lafayette County — the rock solid, ever-consistent Rooster’s Blues House and owner Scott Michael keep the intensity hot and its doors open even without the majority of Ole Miss students in town to pack the popular venue. Hancock Co. (pictured here) is scheduled to return to the Rooster’s stage this Saturday night (Dec. 17) after Cadillac Funk rocks the rafters on Friday — shows organized with Oxonians, not students, in mind. Turn to Page 4 in this week’s issue of Oxford Town and check out our Community Calendar to see this and other listings for the upcoming weekend into next week. (December 15, 2011, Page 4)
