The Choctaw Lake Summer Concert Series for 2018 promises to be very, very exciting year.
Returning from last year will be our 2 most popular acts, Ashley Martin (a country/pop singer) and Soul Express (a funk/soul band) both from Dayton, OH. Both acts gave us great shows and received very positive feedback.
Perhaps most exciting is our featured act for this year, Mo Pitney, a country singer from Nashville. Mo was named as one of Billboard magazine’s “hottest country singers to watch.” He has had multiple single releases, the most popular called “Country” which reached #40 on the charts. Opening for Mo will be Matt Prater, another Nashville resident country singer.
The Temps, from Springfield, will play in August and will entertain us with their upbeat renditions of dance cover music from the 80’s to today.
Last, but not least is one of our own, Ernie Sparks and his band called “Rendition.” They play classic oldies and feature a large horn section which adds tremendous depth and interest to the band.
Choctaw Lake wants to thank Ernie Sparks and “The Medicine Shoppe” for sponsoring our concerts this year. Here are the dates and acts.
