Each month at the Farm Street Opry, the awesome talents of our house band shine through. With years of experience and top professionalism, we can confidently say our Farm Street Opry Band is the finest in the Opry circuit.
This month, the FSO Band will step back in time and offer the classic, old-time Country of the 1950's-60s.
Featuring, Big John Mills on guitar, Frank Iarossi on drums, Craig Schmidt on steel guitar, Gary Brock on electric bass, and Frank Cavitt on keyboard. Each of our musicians also sing, and bring their own style and fun to each show.
We are an “oldies” band specializing in the years 1955 to 1965. We play hits by Elvis, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, The Ventures, Beatles, various Doo-Wop songs and more! We are a four-piece band with guitar, bass, drums and a sax/guitar/piano man. Three out of four of us are named Jon….
