The 2021 Branson Landing Summer Concert Series kicks-off this weekend with a special performance from Papa Green Shoes.
The concert will begin at 8:30 p.m. on May 29, but the beer garden will open at 6:30 p.m. Papa Green Shoes is a high energy, four piece band, which has rooted themselves in modern blues, but also has touches of soul, funk and rock.
Based out of Springfield, Papa Green Shoes features the Cottengim brothers, Jody and Stoney, who have been a staple in the Ozarks’ music scene for decades now. Joining the brothers on stage are Casey Kavanagh on saxophone and keyboard and Dean Dazey on the bass.
