The 5th Annual Music & Mayhem festival will continue without headliners Cross Canadian Ragweed in 2011. In May 2010, the “Boys from Oklahoma” abruptly announced a “break from touring” but they are not leaving their fans hanging.
The event takes place every year on Memorial Day weekend at the Eufaula Cove Amphitheater and this year is no different. Kicking off the event at 4:15 p.m. are newcomers to the scene Left Foot Sally. Cody Canada & the Departed will take the stage in the number two slot. This is an unusual place for Canada, former lead singer of Ragweed but everyone knows that in the Texas/Red Dirt brotherhood dues have to be paid to be at the top of the ticket. Next, veteran performers Jason Boland & the Stragglers and the Randy Rogers Band will get the crowd pumped for 2011’s headliner Gary Allan.
“I’m really looking forward to Mayhem this year. I have been twice in the past three years and I am just hoping it doesn’t rain. Last time it was a complete mud bath and I lost my shoes,” said Jordan Anderson, Tahlequah senior.
