Excellent Entertainment Scheduled for 2015 on the Plaza Stage!


Conway Jackson

Join us for the 34th annual Good Ol’ Days festival June 5 – 6, 2015 in Downtown Fort Scott. There is a great line-up of entertainers scheduled for the weekend.

Friday night at Skubitz Plaza from 8 – 11 pm, Conway Jackson will take the stage. Conway Jackson is a Red Dirt Music inspired Country-Rock band from Pittsburg, KS. Formed in 2008, they have 2 self-released full length albums and began working on their third this year. While traveling throughout the Midwest, they have had the opportunity to share the stage with acts such as the Randy Rogers Band, Reckless Kelly, Jason Boland and the Stragglers, Stoney LaRue, and The Casey Donahew Band just to name a few. There is a good chance you will be singing along and tapping your foot with the music!

Saturday, starting at 10:00 am and 11:15 am on the Plaza Stage, Half of Dueling Pianos will perform. Dueling pianos is one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the Midwest and across the nation today.  Half of Dueling Pianos is a unique twist on the dueling pianos concept. Spike Blake is Half of Dueling Pianos and the audience is "the other half." With Spike, you get an all request traditional dueling pianos and comedy show, a kickin’ dance band, and highly interactive DJ hits, ALL IN ONE SHOW! It’s entertaining and fresh from beginning to end.


Big Time Grain Company

The second act that will be performing on the Plaza Stage on Saturday is Comedy Hypnotist: Tom Thompson. Thompson will amaze you and your friends as he takes you into the realm of your imagination; being silly onstage and enjoying it. The audience volunteers are the stars as the hypnotist convinces them they are astronauts, Elvis, ballet dancers, and more! The show is clean family fun and is rated PG. Thompson’s show is edgy, without being risqué or disrespectful to his volunteers. Make sure you come down and have some fun! Tom Thompson will be performing at 2:30 pm and 4:00 pm.

Big Time Grain Company is scheduled to perform on Saturday night from 8 – 11 pm. Big Time Grain Company is one of the fastest rising country bands in the Midwest. With over 90 dates in 2014, the band opened for Gary Allan, Dan and Shay, and Restless Heart to name a few. They also headlined the Plaza Art Fair, American Royal Rodeo, Power and Light, and many more events. If you like Dierks Bentley, Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Brad Paisley, Alabama, Garth Brooks, and Johnny Cash…you’ll love these guys!
