The Good Living Tour is bringing musicians to O'Neill on Sunday for a one-of-a-kind show that includes an O'Neill native along with three other artist.
The concert is free, family friendly, and all ages are encouraged to attend. Music begins at 4:30 p.m. at Ford Park.
Along with a concert, the Good Living Tour will also create two feature stories highlighting music community and industry-related subjects in O'Neill. Also, an “Experience Nebraska” video will play featuring young professionals speaking about what makes O'Neill a uniquely great place to live, work and play, and a music video featuring a local artist performing a song at a landmark community location.
In its second year, the Good Living Tour expands from 9 to 12 Greater Nebraska cities over three weekends this summer, July 21-Aug. 7. Like last year’s inaugural run, the tour will mix a concert series and storytelling project to celebrate the state’s unique livelihood and increasingly vibrant, original music culture.
Rachel Price (acoustic pop - O’Neill)
Originally from O’Neill, Nebraska, singer-songwriter Rachel Price caught viral attention for her song and video “Little Nebraska Town” in late 2014. She’s since moved to Nashville and has sharpened into a versatile pop artist without losing sight of her stripped-down acoustic roots.
Mesonjixx (soul - Lincoln)
It took a matter of months in 2015 for Mesonjixx to become one of the Lincoln music scene's most consistent and beloved live acts. Fronted by Mary Lawson's unimpeachable voice and subtle jazz piano, the soul quartet hangs its hat on both singer-songwriter intimacy and the jam-prone instrumentalists Kekeli Dawes (drums), Myles Jasnowski (guitar) and Josh Barger (bass). Mesonjixx released its first official song in February 2016 and promised more to come.
Laughing Falcon (rock - Lincoln)
Having earned its reputation as one of Nebraska's loudest live bands, Laughing Falcon has been busy lately, releasing the appropriately titled LP Sonic Possession last fall and traveling to South by Southwest in 2016. As aggressive and dark as Nebraka punk veteran Kevin Chasek's songs are, there's always and underlying groove keeping rock 'n' roll in the mix.
DJ: DJ RELIC (Lincoln)
DJ Relic is one of Lincoln's most consistent electronic presences. The former holder of a weekly dance party night at Zoo Bar and a regular at Lincoln's Old Pub Soul Club gatherings, Relic is known for a deep, dance-inducing vinyl collection.
