'The Roys' appear in unique 'Boji show

Monday, January 28, 2013

The New Frontier Touring Showcase presents a unique concert Thursday, April 25, 7:30 p.m. at Lakes Art Center in Okoboji.

Sharing the stage will be The Roys & Rosco Bandana.

New Frontier Touring is an agency known for introducing up and coming artists to the music scene. LAC is bringing in two of their emerging artist groups for a fun and entertaining night of music.

The Roys (pictured at right) are a spirited set of "siblings" with stellar bluegrass vocals, and enviable songwriting skills. While they were still young children, Elaine learned guitar and Lee picked up drums, bass and mandolin. Their latest album, "New Day Dawning," is reminiscent of LeeAnn Womack, Ricky Skaggs and other country luminaries.

Rosco Bandana is a Mississippi Gulf-based septet whose act includes Blues/Americana style music blended with modern folk and a hint of gypsy fanfare.
