Tyler Clark, Chair of Washington County Democrats announced the three bands for Democrats Rock 2014 at the holiday party last night.
Arkansas favorite Goose will headline the event on Saturday, April 5th at Pratt Place Barn. Fayetteville native, Will Brand, also known as the One-Man-Band will open up the annual event. Smokey & the Mirror two members from the very popular 3 Penny Acre will anchor the event with the 7:00pm slot.
Tickets go on sale on January 1st.
Friday will mark the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination. Kennedy's legacy has had a profound impact on so many, myself included. While watching the many retrospectives on television over the last few weeks, I cannot help but to feel some of the sorrow many of you experienced in the aftermath of the tragic events on Elm Street in Dallas. I've poured over JFK's remarks and speeches. I was particularly struck by a passage in a speech the President was scheduled to deliver later in Austin on November 22, 1963.
"For this county is moving and it must not stop. It cannot stop. For this is a time for courage and a time for challenge. Neither conformity nor complacency will do."
It is still a challenging time for Americans and for our Party, but I know you are all committed to help us move forward.
-Tyler Clark, Chairman
