Concert? What Concert? Doug Heady, Easter Bunny, and the Zantar Belly Dancing Troop steal the show! The Nevada Missouri City Wide Shopping Day began at 9am with a brisk overcast morning and traffic slim in the downtown area, 9:30 shoppers were cruising by and by eleven am things were happening. There was a twenty-minute wait to see the Easter Bunny at Belles & Beaus. Interior Motives had shoppers waiting to get inside before they opened. The Chair Mart FREE $20 gift certificate when you join their face book program went over good and is still in effect, lots of folks used their gift certificate to pick up a candle or put it towards a new couch. Doug Heady’s appearance at the Armadillo Sound Studio was over the top with non-stop traffic through out the day. Monty Colvin’s art exhibit looked great at the Art Shop, and is still on display. Monty’s presence with his band mates from Crunchy at the Meet & Eat at Cherry Street Grill was fun as well as the Meet & Eat with the Alamo Black band at Iguana Azul. The Number 3 Concert event at the Community Center suffered in overall attendance, but a strong 72% of the attendance coming from out of town. A carload of fans from as far away as the state of Texas, approximately twenty two attendees from Springfield, seven from Stockton, four from Joplin Missouri, three from St Joseph, about fourteen from surrounding Vernon County areas, two from Fort Scott Kansas, and seven from the Kansas City area. The concert event hosted a grand total of sixty-two concert attendees, with another 34 crew, band members, or event volunteers. The Shopping Day ended with cars waiting for oil changes at Eddie’s Auto, and the Night Life events went over very well. Backroads Steakhouse hosted one hundred and forty fans of Shaded Abe and Withird-I, Viking 502 hosted Recoil band with two hundred and forty five patrons, and the official after party with Sabik and Fraught with Peril band was at max capacity all night long.
