The “Hayes Brothers Band” will take the stage at the free outdoor Full Moon Concert, Wednesday, September 2 in Tonkawa Centennial Park, 301 East Grand in Tonkawa. The group performs music from the 1950’s through today including well-known pop, rock and country classics that are audience favorites. Band members are Clark Hayes on guitar and lead vocals, Kent Hayes on drums and lead vocals, Keke Johnson on Hammond organ and guitar, Stan Villines on bass, Steve Scott on keyboards, Jace Sober on guitar, and Eddie Holick on violin/fiddle and guitar.
Clark and Kent Hayes are legendary musicians from Ponca City, Oklahoma. Their musical career started in the early 1960’s with various groups over the years such as the “Cascades Trio,” “J.J. Lee Band” and the national award winning “Good Ol’Boys Band” that included Keke Johnson and Eddie Holick.
Stan Villines, Ponca City, played in several bands since the 1960’s including with Clark and Kent in the J.J. Lee Band. Steve Scott played in popular Ponca City based bands such as “On Tap” and others since the late 1960’s and played with Clark and Kent in the “Good Ol’Boys Band” during the 1990’s. Jace Sober is the youngest member of the band, and rounds out the sound that is uniquely the “Hayes Brothers Band.”
The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and is free to all. Since seating in the park is limited, the public is invited to bring lawn chairs or blankets. Snacks, drinks, and pets on leashes are welcome, and restrooms are located across the street in the Santa Fe Depot.
Throughout the evening, concert goers may walk the world’s only heart-shaped labyrinth, and the evening concludes with the traditional group howl at the full moon. North Central Oklahoma Arts Council and Heart in the Park Committee sponsor the free monthly concerts in the park. Next month’s Full Moon Concert on Thursday, October 1, will feature the jazzy sounds of “Holly & the Guys.”
