The Sportsman's Tavern is host to the Blue Ox Band's 3rd reunion this summer (Saturday evening, July 25th) as part of their 'The Sportsman's Tavern Private Party Series'.
A maximum of only 80 tickets for this event were made available through The Sportsman's Tavern to ensure none of the Private Party shows get too crowed or uncomfortable for the concert goers.
As of this writing (June 21st, 2009) the Blue Ox Band Reunion show is sold out. We regret if you were not able to secure a ticket, they went very fast.
With a little luck we can schedule a fourth show down the line a bit, and perhaps schedule more than a single night. But for now, that's all we can do. Our bassist, Norris Hawks Lewis is in town, only long enough for us to rehearse and schedule one show.
Please send me an email thru this web site and I will put you on The Charlie O'Neill's Guitar Shop email newsletter. I send out these newsletters about once a month. I'll be sure to notify you of any future activity by the Blue Ox Band.
"Putting this Blue Ox Band CD project together, coupled with a reunion show at The Sportsman's Tavern is a dream come true for me. After all this time, The Blue Ox Band lives"

"I know we all have been thinking about that project for years now. When we had the first reunion I could see that there was a real need to get that dream on disc. We owed it to ourselves and the people that supported us over the years. I would like to be a part of it to whatever extent I can or you and Willie want me to be. I'm with you all the way!! I'd like to be part of the production, let me know how, where and when!!
Norris Hawks Lewis January, 2009
This is not only an awesome idea; itís one that I've been thrashing around for years. In fact, you could say I thought of it first. Ok, we won't say that. But in fact, I was just listening to the Track Master session, thinking "this is pretty good stuff..."
