The Arkansas Bros.
Northern Lights plays classic country, country, oldies, rockabilly, and classic rock.
The Arkansas Brothers music has sprouted from the heavy influences of gospel, blues, rockabilly and country, much like the cotton that bursts from the rich Arkansas delta soil they were raised on.
Tim and Jess Hoggard, along with Matt Pierce have been playing music and touring regionally, nationally, and abroad for over two decades. They have shared the stage with such names as: Jimbo Mathis and the Tri-State Coalition (which Pierce is also a member of) Billy Lee Riley, Big Jack Johnson, Mark Sallings, Sonny Burgess, Jim Dandy, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ike Turner, Hubert Sumlin, Lil Howlin Wolf, Willie “Big Eyes” Smith, North Mississippi Allstars, Todd snider, Bernard Allison, Alvin Youngblood Hart, The Black Crowes and Robert Plant to name a few.
They credit some of their major influences on Muddy Waters, Howling Wolf, James Cotton, Albert Collins and Al Green as well as Telecasters, fine tune amps, BBQ, and redneck soul.
The Lockhouse Orchestra
The Lockhouse Orchestra was formed by Danny Dozier to perform a series of monthly concerts that lasted about two years, and each month the band would do a tribute to a different artist. Some of the artists covered included The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Creedence, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow, artists from the Motown era and more.
Although the diversity of experience of the musicians is what makes this band special, the members of Lockhouse have two very important things in common: the love of music and the love and appreciate of the Ozarks. Each of the members had their own music career before returning home. These musicians' experience pulls from country, rock, blues, gospel, folk, and heavy metal. The band members include John Parks, Jason Moser and Danny Dozier, all from Batesville. Parks plays guitar and sings, Moser plays drums, and Dozier plays guitar and sings. Sarah Jo Roark of Melbourne sings and plays percussion; Penny Wolfe of Evening Shade sings and plays percussion; and Jerry Bone of Oxford plays bass.
