This article is the third in a series of posts about musicians from Oxford, Mississippi who are continuing to play live and during the 2020 CoronaVirus Shutdown.

Mark Yocovone

Mark Yocovone lives in Oxford, Mississippi and he is definitely one of the best keyboardists around! Holy moly, you’re gonna love this!!

Are you ready?!?

Who’s ready for a melody of TV theme songs? “I’m ready!”

Silas Reed and Laura Reed

We all need a whole lot of soul, and Silas Reed is here to help. You’ll fall in love with Laura Reed‘s bass guitar, too. Here they are on a classic, “Ain’t No Sunshine”.

Damein Wash

Local Favorite Damein Wash has “gone fishin'” this weekend with Schubert‘s “Die Forelle” (The Trout).

Joe Austin & The Tallahatchies

The Yoknapatawpha Arts Council is now hosting a series of live videos over the internet that include local musicians. I had heard of Joe Austin & The Tallahatchies, but honestly, this was my first time to check them out.

YAC is calling it the “Stay@Home Festival” (great name!) and this is the first video. Give it a listen while you’re mulling around your house.

One for the road, less traveled, from Mark Yacovone…

There’s a lot of great keyboardists in the Oxford area, and then there’s Mark Yacovone! Wow!
