Fayetteville party band, The Poggs, have announced their return with a set of reunion dates for Northwest Arkansas.
During their original run between 2008-2012, The Poggs, which consists of Will Brand, Jim Goza, Justus Moll, and newest member Justin Danner, enjoyed a bit of local celebrity when their single “Tony Montana” received regular rotation on Northwest Arkansas radio in 2009. Now, the band gears up for a run of shows including a St. Paddy’s Saturday at Georges Majestic Lounge (3/16) and a headlining slot at this year’s Fayetteville Springfest (4/20).
First up, the band is set for March 16 at George’s Majestic Lounge with Will Brand’s Rubber Band and special guest Samantha Hunt.
Shindigmusic caught up with Poggs guitarist, Will Brand, who had this to say about their imminent return,
“We’ve all been walking our own paths and I’ve been working with George’s for a few months. So when I was offered this fun St. Paddy’s Eve date, I asked the guys if they would help me make it extra special and they were ready! So now attendees will not only get to see Will Brand’s Rubber Band but they can stick around and get wild with The Poggs!”
The show kicks off at 9pm, Tickets are $10 and available on stubs.net.
Second, the band will be performing at the 33rd edition of Fayetteville’s Springfest alongside Drawing Blanks, Melody Pond, Jenna and the Soulshakers and more. Springfest is set for April 20 and is a FREE EVENT. Get the full Springfest lineup below.
