ABOUT

Playing and singing off and on since 1965. Currently a member of the Southaven Boomers performing 50's and 60's rock at local festivals, conventions, etc.. NOTE: The Boomers are currently seeking a male singer to perform with the group. We perform 1-2 shows per month, usually locally and some road trips to Arkansas, Missouri, Tennesee and Mississippi. We also wear costumes and wigs to promote the theme. This is a hobby group and there is no pay for the members. All band proceeds go into the band account to pay for equipment, hotels, gas, etc. For info, the group was invited to performed in the Ryman Auditorium in the past after winning a contest. If you are interested, please contact Kenny Johnson @901.359.1857. My contact info is 901.834.0169. You can also visit the Southaven Boomers on Facebook to view group videos and upcoming events.
