He's coming to Batesville...Yippie!!! I can't wait...NOT!! Really?? Is this really the best Batesville can do for music entertainment?? We repeatedly keep getting these hillbilly rednecks to come here and play music??? why??? Some of us would like to see some good classic rock.

Although I do understand what you are saying in regards to other types of music and yes it would be nice to get some classics out there, keep in mind the cost of what these people charge to play. Batesville isn't exactly a big city such as Little Rock and therefore they will never get those names because of what Steve has to pay to get them here. The promotions business is a gamble when it comes to booking entertainment and you have to hope that you at least break even. As dumb as it may seem, start some sort of petition or something to show him there is a demand for the music you want. It may or may not work but it's a start!

Shooter Jennings isn't a hillbilly redneck. He's a respected singer-songwriter, and he can rock.

Kudos to Steve for bringing a class act to Batesville - along with Lucero again, a band who is catching on big-time across the country.

I'm you sure you can catch Molly Hatchet somewhere nearby on the county fair circuit this summer to get your 'classic rock' fix.

It's funny the were able to get Warrant and Night Ranger. Both of those had great turnouts. It's like they just said F**k it, let's just get these country bumpkin no talent rednecks to come play instead. I'd just as soon they save the money and just forget it bygod. Don't get nobody. As far as Lucero, really??? You call that talent?? They suck. All that alternative rock crap does.

I'm going to see Shooter at the river and lookin foreward to it, I seen Molly Hatchet at Portfest a few years ago and they sucked a big one. I try to support every concert here and at Jacksonport and If you don't like it keep your nasty ass at home.

oh don't worry, as long as all they get is this country bulls**t, I will most definitely stay at home. I don't care if batesville ever gets another concert for all you rednecks to have an excuse to gather and drink beer. Get a life.

might need to summon gooberman back from Pine Bluff to take care of any problems or chaos. Sounds like gooberman is up waist deep in problems with some Pine Bluff thugs.
