Band of Oz draws a crowd

By Erin Smith
The sounds of Beach music and laughter filled the air at the Cape Fear Farmers Market in Elizabethtown on Thursday evening as the Band of Oz took to the stage for the third installment of the Summer Sounds Concert series. The concert series is sponsored by the Elizabethtown-White Lake Area Chamber of Commerce and Cape Fear Valley-Bladen Healthcare.
A crowd estimated to be between 700 to 800 people gathered to dance the night away and enjoy the smooth rhythms of the band. The Band of Oz played such hits as Shama Lama Ding Dong, Ocean Boulevard, Be Young Be Foolish Be Happy and a medley of Glenn Frye hits.
Chamber Executive Director Dawn Maynard said, “I’m excited.” She said the number of people in attendance is a testament to the bands.
The final concert will take place on Thursday, August 24th, and will feature the Blackwater Rhythm and Blues Band of Clarkton.
