38 Special concert event to kick off Eclipse West Plains: Party in the Path!

Legendary southern rock, powerhouse band 38 Special will be in concert at the West Plains Civic Center Friday, April 5. Joining the group will be acclaimed regional favorites, The Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Doors open at 6 p.m., concert begins at 7 p.m.

After more than four decades, multiple Gold and Platinum albums and a touring schedule that still includes over 100 cities every year, 38 Special continues to entertain and amaze audiences with their powerful performances. Since 1976, the band has released more than 15 albums and toured extensively, bringing their signature brand of ‘muscle and melody’ to fans worldwide. With sales in excess of 20 million, most associate the band with their arena-rock pop smashes, “Hold On Loosely,” “Rockin’ Into the Night,” “Caught Up in You,” “Fantasy Girl,” “If I’d Been the One,” “Back Where You Belong,” “Chain Lightnin’,” “Second Chance” and more. Their timeless hits remain a staple on Classic Rock outlets.

The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, based in Springfield, Mo., have recently celebrated their 50th anniversary. Their songs include the chart-topping single “Jackie Blue,” along with “If You Wanna Get To Heaven,” “Standing On The Rock,” “Country Girl,” “You Made It Right” and many others. Their sound is a genre-defying blend of rock and country-rock along with other influences. They infuse their music with harmonies, a variety of instruments and a playful approach to performing such songs as “Chicken Train” and “Time Warp.”

The concert will be the kick-off event for the four-day “Eclipse West Plains: Party in the Path” to celebrate the good fortune of West Plains having approximately three minutes of ‘totality,’ when the sun will be totally eclipsed from view by the moon, on April 8. There will be a variety of other events throughout the weekend with fun for all ages.
