    Spend your Fourth of July rocking on the National Mall with the Ozark Mountain Daredevils! The Springfield, Missouri-based band has been honing its country rock sound for over fifty years. Whether you’re an old fan or new, sing along to “Jackie Blue” in your red, white, and blue.

    “I continue to be amazed at all the places in my life that music has taken me,” John Dillon, a founding member of the band, told Ozarks Alive. “I’m even more amazed by the number of new experiences that have come our way in just the past two years… Now, on July 4, we are playing on the Mall at our nation’s capital for the Smithsonian. It is such an honor. What a truly magical trip this has been.”
