Ouachita Little Theatre is presenting The Remnants (of Rock), bringing the best music from the golden era of Rock, 1959-1969. The show is Saturday, November 2, at 7:00 PM. Doors open at 6:00 PM.
The band, originally known as The St. James group, formed in 1968. The original members all grew up within walking-distance of each other in the small town of Morrilton, Arkansas. They performed professionally until 1978, sharing the stage with some of the biggest musical names of the 1970s. They played on college campuses all over Arkansas and the Mid-West, including the Mena High School Junior-Senior Prom in the spring of 1971. The original members reunited in 2003 as The Remnants (of Rock) with the addition of a new keyboard player and have played together since that time.
If you think you may have a photo of the band playing at the 1971 prom, or from another handful of times that they played in Mena between 1968 and 1972 (under the name of St. James Group) please bring it to the performance. Inform anyone working at the theatre that night that you have it so they can tell the group. There are bound to be some fun surprises at the performance!
Advanced tickets are on sale now at the OLT office (10:00 AM. -2:00 PM) Monday through Friday. Tickets will also be available at the Polk County Chamber of Commerce Depot Office, at First Financial Bank, and Union Bank during regular hours. Tickets will also be available at the door, but we advise you arrive early to ensure a seat to the show. There will be no reserved seating at this show, even for advanced sales, and a good crowd is expected. All tickets are $20; this is an auxiliary show for OLT, therefore not available on your OLT season ticket.
These are the tunes that defined a generation. But these are also the songs all generations know and love. The band’s goal is to recreate the music of the 60’s as authentically as possible. Don’t miss your chance to see The Remnants (of Rock)!
