Old Lake Bash Returning to Memphis on Saturday

The Old Lake Bash is officially back, and organizers are hoping this Saturday's entertainment will insure that what is being billed as the biggest one-day party in northeast Missouri once again becomes an annual celebration.

The gates will open at the old Memphis city lake beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 1st. Advance ticket sales have been on going for several weeks, but guests will also be able to pay at the gate. The final advance ticket sales will be held Friday at Gas & More.

Afternoon guests will be able to take part in volleyball and washers while enjoying the park in preparation for the evening's music venue. A free hog roast will keep the guests fed starting at 5:00 p.m.

Bring your blankets and your lawn chairs as the evening will feature performances by four bands as well as acoustic performances by musician Mitch Prather.

The stage will feature Silver Bullet, a Bob Seger tribute band, as well as Paradise City, a Guns & Roses tribute band. Local artists Cohesion and the Bruce Poe Band will be taking the stage Saturday evening as well. The music is set to start at 6:00 p.m.

The event is being operated and organized by the Old Lake Bash committee, a not-for-profit group with members who were born and raised in Memphis. Their stated goal is to enrich the lives of both current and former residents of northeast Missouri.

"Although we now live in 'the big city', we remember growing up and always hearing 'There's never anything to do around here'," said committee member Jason Bradley. "We hope even if it's only for one weekend, we can get that thought far from your mind. We intend to do this by brining in top quality entertainment, a great atmosphere full of both current and past friends... all at a highly affordable price."

The event will be held rain or shine.

A free limousine shuttle service will be available to and from Memphis courtesy of Country Clips - Jennifer Alexander.

"It's been gone for over 15 years, but now it's back with new life," said Bradley. "I hope people come out and enjoy themselves. With the right amount of support, this can continue to grow each year. Everyone needs to have dreams, ours is to bring in a mid-level country artist in the future. Someone like Jason Aldean, Dirks Bentley or even Little Big Town. It's possible, we just need the support of northeast Missouri."
